Big Sensations in the 3rd Quzhou-Lanke Cup!

 2010-09-28           Expert: DanielTom

   The Quzhou-Lanke Cup is the Chinese Tournament with the highest total prize money (with approximately 75,000 USD for the Winner).

   Xie He 7p advanced to the semifinals by defeating Gu Li 9p in the 3rd round (you can see that game here). Gu Li had won the previous edition of the Quzhou-Lanke Cup, so his elimination is one of the biggest sensations so far.

   The other games were also very interesting.  Zhou Ruiyang 5p defeated Ding Wei 9p and advanced to the semifinals (so he will be playing Xie He next).

   Piao Wenyao 5p and Jiang Weijie 5p, two young and (very!) promising players, played each other in the 3rd round, and Jiang ended up winning by resignation.

   Finally, Yang Dingxin 2p, a 11-year-old boy, also qualified to the semifinals! He became a professional go player at the age of 9, and he is already showing impressive results. He started this tournament as a 1-dan pro, and beat Wang Yao 6p, Chen Yaoye 9p (the current Tianyuan title-holder), and Li Zhe 6p, in the 1st, 2nd and 3rd round respectively. He will now face Jiang Weijie in the semifinals. Who do you think will win?

   We will update the results as soon as possible, so stay with us :)

Interesting game, but a top pro losing to another top pro is that big of a surprise? Anyway, after playing D2, B deserved to lose. :)
