Park Jung-hwan, Byun Sang-il, Ahn Seong-jun, Park Geon-ho ‘Round of 16’
(Hangame Baduk = Reporter Han Chang-gyu) Five out of eight Korean players started off the opening stage with victory. Shin Jin-seo, Park Jeong-hwan, Byeon Sang-il, Ahn Seong-jun, 9th Dan, and Park Gun-ho, 7th Dan, advanced to the round of 16 at the 1st Nanga Cup World Baduk Open Round of 32 held at the Cultural Arts Center in Quzhou City, Zhejiang Province, China on the afternoon of the 5th.
Jinseo Shin, 9p, ranked first in Korea, faced Li Qincheng, 9p, ranked 13th in China. Personally, this is my first world competition solo exhibition. In the confrontation, which was also a teammate in the Chinese Gabjo League, he showed the content of overwhelming after seizing the victory at an early stage while going through a slightly rigid early stage.
3 hours and 45 minutes from the start, 215 unaccounted for. Their opponent record was 5 wins and 5 losses. The five defeats suffered by Shin Jin-seo, 9-dan, are all before 2016, and most of them are shorthand games played by Li Qin-cheng, 9-dan.
Jinseo Shin’s 9-dan record this year was 44 wins and 3 losses, and the win rate rose to 93.62%. He is showing a pace that far exceeds the annual win rate record of 88.37% he set in 2020. Also, since February 26, the number of consecutive wins has been increased to 26.
Park Jeong-hwan, 2nd in the rankings, met China’s 15th ranked Zhao Chenyu, 9th dan, who recently suffered two consecutive defeats, and received a letter of encouragement after the longest match (5 hours and 53 minutes). 3rd place Byeon Sang-il, 9-dan, maintained his superiority with 5 wins and 3 losses in the match against Tang Weixing, 9-dan메이저놀이터, with only 148 moves.
In addition, 7th place Ahn Seong-joon, 9th Dan, won a come-from-behind victory against Taiwanese representative Wi Jeong-chi, 8th Dan, in his first match. 11th place Park Geon-ho, 7th Dan, overcame the mid-to-late half in the first confrontation with Chao Xiaoyang, 5th Dan, and scored the goal.
However, 6th place Kang Dong-yoon, 9th Dan, was beaten by Tao Shinran, 9th Dan, and fell into a struggle in the middle of the match and was defeated. 8th place Won Seongjin 9P was caught by Li Xuanhao 9P, and 12th place Han Seung-Joo 9P also gave Gu Zihao 9P a ticket to the round of 16.
China, with 15 players, was shocked by the loss of No. Japan, which had 5 players, and Europe and North America, which had 1 player each, were all eliminated. The round of 16 consisted of 5 Koreans, 10 Chinese, and 1 Taiwanese.
Shin Jinseo-Dinghao (5:3), Park Jeonghwan-Gu Zihao (8:1:4), Byun Sangil-Wang Xinghao (0:1), Ahn Seongjun-Tao Xinran (0:0) ), and Park Gun-ho-Sher Hao (1:0, relative match in parentheses).
As Chinese players accounted for more than half of the round of 16, all five Korean players met with Chinese players. This is because, during the match draw, confrontations between national players are avoided as much as possible.
The round of 16 will be held on the 6th, the quarterfinals on the 8th, and the semifinals on the 9th. The final, which will be held in the third round, will continue on June 14, 16, and 17 in Quzhou. The match starts at 1:30 pm Korean time.

Winner 1.8 million yuan (approximately 350 million won), runner-up 600,000 yuan (approximately 120 million won), 4th round loser 200,000 yuan, 8th round loser 100,000 yuan, 16th round loser 50,000 yuan, 32nd round loser 30,000 It’s comforting.
