Major title schedule in 2017 Japan

August 2017
30-31 Meijin best-of-seven competition, Round1, Iyama Yuta vs Takao Shinji.
We wonder if Iyama accomplish the career grand slam of pro seven major tournaments for the second time in his life. Once Iyama careered grand slam in 2016, but soon he lost Meijin and was superseded by Takao. However, surprisingly Iyama has succeeded in keeping all other six titles over the past year, and furthermore, he has won the Meijin-League too in this year. He gets a chance to career grand slam once again.
