Lee Changho Wins Nongshim Cup for South Korea

Friday, March 12th, 2010

China was way ahead in this year’s Nongshim Cup with three players left even after Japan was eliminated and Korea had only one player left.

Turned out that strength is not always in the numbers: the last man standing from the South Korean team, Lee Changho, single-handedly won the cup for his country after defeating all remaining Chinese players: Liu Xing, Gu Li and Chang Hao.

Lee Changho defeated Chang Hao by resignation.

I love the look on the face of Cho Hunhyun (standing, right) as he watches his ex-student, Lee Changho, after Lee’s win.
