South Korea suffered its third consecutive defeat at the Nongshim Shin Ramen Boat World Go Championship.
South Korea’s third player, Won Sung-jin (38), played in the second round of the 25th Nongshim Shin Ramen Bae World Go Championship at the Hotel Nongshim in Busan on Tuesday, but he was defeated by China’s strongest player, Sheng Hao (25), in 291 moves.
This was the third consecutive defeat for South Korea, which lost the first round in Beijing, China, in October when Seol Hyun-joon 8 dan and Byun Sang-il 9 dan failed to win a single game.
China took a commanding lead in the match, with Xue Shenghao riding a four-game winning streak of pawns.
Won Sung-jin, who had black as a result of covering the stone, was at a disadvantage in the middlegame as he made a series of small mistakes.
In the closing stages, he made a strong push in the endgame, but was unable to overcome the last half-move and lost.
Won now has two losses in his career against Shenghao without a win.
Won Sung-jin, who was competing in his seventh Nongshim Cup, has a record of six wins and seven losses.
With the loss of their trusted “eldest brother,” Won Sung-jin, South Korea was left with only the 1-2 ranked 9 dan duo of Shin Shin-seo and Park Jung-hwan.
For China, the entire 9th dan team of Qiu Ze, Ding Hao, Guo Zhihao, 카지노사이트 and Zhao Tianyu survived thanks to the performance of Sheng Hao.
After finishing runner-up at the recently concluded Samsung Hwajae Jae, Xue Shenghao has now won four consecutive matches at the Nongshim Cup, securing a streak prize of 20 million won.
Japan will be represented by Ryo Ichiriki, 9th dan Yuta Iyama and 8th dan Wei Zhiqi.
On December 1, the Nongshim Cup Six Nations will feature a match between Shenghao and Japan’s 9th dan Ichiriki.
Sheerhao leads their head-to-head record with two wins.
