Gu Li got married
I was organizing the game records of the 13th Chinese Ricoh Cup, and thought that one round 2 game between Gu Li and his opponent is missing. It is not, because later I learned that Gu Li got a special permission to delay this game so that he could get married. Professionals are busy people and they can barely find time to get married :). There are some interesting readings on this on the Internet. The bride is said to be an Olympic silver medalist in rhythmic gymnastics. There were of course many Go players participating the ceremony, led by Lee Sedol 9-dan, Gu Li's main opponent but also good friend in life outside Go. The best man is Tan Xiao 7-dan. Lee Sedol joked that Gu Li might getting much stronger after having a stable family life, becoming a tougher opponent and challenging his position. How marriage affects Go players has always been an interesting topics among Go fans.
