South Korea Wins the 8th Jeongganjang Cup

Friday, February 5th, 2010

Park Jieun 9 dan won the 8th Jeongganjang Cup for South Korea. Since all other Korean team members have been eliminated in the first 2 stages of this competition, Park Jieun had to defeat the last member of the Japanese team (Suzuki Ayumi) as well as the three remaining members of the Chinese team (Song Ronghui, Ye Gui and Li He, who won this competition last year for China).

China had a very strong start this year, just like last year, after Wang Chenxing won three games in a row, and it looked for a while as if it will have an easy win.

You can see below a photo and the record of the decisive game between Park Jieun and Li He.

Park Jieun played white and won by resignation..

Thursday, December 24th, 2009

Cao Youyin of China defeated Umezawa Yukari of Japan after defeating Park Sohyun of South Korea. Then she lost to Korean Kim Hyeoimin.

Kim Hyeoimin was eliminated by Mukai Chiaki 3 dan of Japan.

Here is the game record. Mukai Chiaki (black) won by resignation.
