Taiwanese professional go player Cho U, who just reclaimed the Meijin tournament title, on Friday said he hopes to promote the game to people in Taiwan and Japan, where he is based.

Cho said he was happy to take the title again on Nov. 2 after nine years with a win against defending champion Yuta Iyama of Japan in four of the seven games in the final.

At a celebration held in his honor by tournament organizers, Cho said his main goals are to pursue other titles and introduce the strategic board game to more people in Taiwan and Japan.
