After Song Ronghui’s victory, there is only one player left for each of South Korea and Japan, and three players for China. Song Ronghui’s next opponent is Park Jieun 9 dan of South Korea, on February 1st 2010. Park Jieun is the one who eliminated Song Ronghui last year, so this encounter is Song Ronghui’s chance for revenge.

Jeongganjang Cup: Mukai Chiaki (Japan) Defeated Kim Hyeoimin (Korea)

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.

The spectacular part of the Jengganjang Cup is the fact that any particular player can win the tournament for her country if she doesn’t lose any game. The longest winning streak this year was that of Wang Chenxing of China, who won three games in a row.

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

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