Korean Baduk top 3 Shin Jin-seo, Park Jung-hwan, and Byeon Sang-il, 9-dan, are on their way to the final round for a third consecutive victory at the Nongshim Cup.
The final third round of the finals, which will determine the winner of the 24th Nongshim Shin Ramen Cup World Baduk Championship, will continue online from the 20th to the 24th.
Until the second round, South Korea’s Kang Dong-yoon won 4 straight wins, with 3 remaining, China’s Keze Gu Zi-hao 2, and Japan’s Yuta Iiyama 1.
The third round begins on the 20th with a showdown between Park Jung-hwan, 9th Dan, and Iiyama, 9th Dan, who saved Japan from the brink of elimination. Park Jung-hwan leads the team with 6 wins and 2 losses, and is currently on a 5-game winning streak.
In the final match of the second round held in November of last year, Iiyama defeated China’s Ren Xiao 9-dan to challenge for a second consecutive victory. If Iiyama had lost at the time, Japan would have been humiliated by not being able to play in the final 3rd round. 카지노
Park Jeong-hwan said, “It’s an important situation, but I think I can leave it comfortably because there are strong players behind me,” and expressed his determination, “I will try my best.”
