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.

Li He defeated Lee Minjin 5p of Korea in the final game. As Japan has already been eliminated earlier, and Lee Minjin was the last standing player from the Korean team, Li He won the victory for China with this win. China had 3 more players who didn’t have to play even one move in this tournament!
