It's a big news for non-Japanese shogi fans!
From the morning to the evening(JST) on December 11, Nicolive is going to cover the second game of the 2nd Eiou-sen final best of three match between 9th dan Sato Amahiko and 5th dan Chida Shota. The commentators are 7th dan Horiguchi Koji and Joryu 3rd kyu Karolina Styczyńska. I think this is an experimental trial for Nico Nico Douga and Japan Shogi Association to measure how much demand for shogi live broadcasting in English exists. So please sign up for Nico Nico Douga(free) and watch it. The broadcasting will start at 9:30 am(JST) and the game will be on from 10:00 am(JST). The game will end after sometime after 9:00 pm(JST) since the allotted thinking time is 5 hours per player and they will have make a move less than 60 seconds per move after consuming the allotted time.
