Episode Description (Viz)
Still looking for that elusive third player, Akari tells Hikaru and Kimihiro about Yuki Mitani, a fellow classmate who can play a mean game of go. The only problem is that he wants nothing to do with amateur tournaments. After overhearing about a match with a middle schooler in a nearby Go Salon, Hikaru and Sai discover Yuki playing not for the love of the game, but for the love of money.
