Shin Jin-seo, 9th Dan “Studying well these days, I won’t be conceited”

“It was fun to play face-to-face after a long time, and I prepared a lot, so I wasn’t particularly nervous.”

Shin Jin-seo, 9th Dan, who is holding the first face-to-face world competition since Corona 19, expressed her feelings. Shin Jin-seo, 9th Dan, defeated two strong players in China and continued her cruising journey to become the first champion of the 1st Nanga Cup, a major world tournament newly established by China.

Ding Hao, 9th Dan, defeated in the round of 16, is the same age and won the LG Cup last February. After himself, he was the second player born in the 2000s to win a major championship, and in perfect shape, he put an end to his six consecutive victories in major world championships.

Commentary: “I wasn’t sure until the end because I didn’t do any research at first, but after finishing it, it seemed to be better than I thought.” The AI ​​win rate graph showed a shape that overwhelms the opponent from beginning to end.

With this victory, he ran a 27-game winning streak at home and abroad. It is a winning streak parade that has been unfolding since February 26th. I also quietly asked about his winning streak, which by now might be a bit sensitive.

“I feel that my studies are going well these days, so the results seem to be coming out well. However, I will not be conceited because the results of the world championships are the most important. I am not very conscious of winning streaks.”

Shin Jin-seo, 9th Dan, was asked about the probability of winning at the draw for the round of 32 held on the 4th, and said, “I want to speak confidently if the probability is high, but I don’t think so, so I want to hold off on the chance of winning. I will do my best,” he replied.

Shin Jin-seo, 9th Dan, who briefly appeared on the China Baduk Association’s live broadcast channel (Chinese version of YouTube) while waiting for the draw for the quarterfinals after winning the round of 16, said about the probability of advancing to the final, “I think there are many variables, and they are all strong, so no matter who you play with, “I don’t think it’s advantageous,” he said, “I still think the probability of going to the final is about 50%.”

The opponent in the quarterfinals is Li Wei-qing, another 9-dan player of the same age. Shin Jin-seo, 9th dan, said, “It is a knight who has many paving stones and studies a lot.”

32-year-old Ahn Seong-jun, who reached the quarterfinals together, has maintained the status of the oldest player since the round of 16. Seongjun Ahn, 9th Dan, challenges Gu Zhao, 9th Dan, to the semifinals of the majors after advancing to the semifinals of the 3rd Mongbaek Combined Cup in 2015.

have no regrets” -Park Geon-ho “I will bring you frustration

by causing a surprise” Ahn Seong-jun 9th Dan said “I think I got another chance by winning the round of 32 that I thought I lost.” I think the flow is okay, and I will play Go without regrets by focusing on what I can do without being conscious of the opponent.”

Gun-ho Park, 7th Dan, is expanding the stage of challenge with his first quarterfinal in a major world competition. This is the third round of the World Championship. In the 2020 and 2022 LG Cup finals, unfortunately, they each turned away from the first edition.

The opponent in the quarterfinals is 19-year-old Wang Xinghao, 8th Dan, who came in as a ‘pinch hitter’ and continues to be the youngest from the round of 16. Initially, he was eliminated from the Chinese selection, but when the tournament scheduled to be held at the end of last year was postponed, he joined Yang Dingxin 9th dan (a period of suspension from the end of last year) as an alternative force.

Park Gun-ho, 7th dan, said, “I didn’t really expect to come to China after losing 4 times in a row in domestic matches, but I’m confused.” It was only after the round of 16 was over that I realized it and felt excited.”

Regarding 8th Dan Wang Xinghao, he said, “I think he is a very promising player who will soon rise to the top level in China.

On the other hand, Chinese Go fans are in a confused mood as the ranking No. 1 Ke Jie, 9th Dan, was eliminated in the first round. Ke Jie, 9th Dan, who had spare time to watch other games of Go when he was quite dominant, was caught by Taiwanese ambush Lai Junfu 8th Dan.

Ke Jie’s 9th dan, who became the victim of the biggest surprise in this tournament, was put on a brake on the 12-game winning streak that had been going on since March 23rd. He also suffered four consecutive losses in major competitions and five consecutive losses in international competitions. Both are personal firsts.

The elimination of the 9th round of the major world championships by Kerze 9th Dan is the fourth time since losing to Won Seong-jin 9th Dan at LG Cup in 2018, Kim Ji-seok 9th Dan at Samsung Fire & Marine Plantation in 2021, and Park Jeong-hwan 9th Dan at Samsung Fire & Marine Plantation in 2022.

Lai Jun-fu 8th dan, who defeated Ke Jie 9th dan and then suffered a crushing loss to Tan Xiao 9th dan, has won three times in Taiwan’s mechanical tournament, and currently holds the mid-season tournament. In the finals of the LG Cup, which opens at the end of this month, he competes by defeating the first player in his country, Xu Hao-hong, 9th Dan, in the selection match.스포츠토토

Japan, which seemed to be regaining its vitality recently, suffered the humiliation of being eliminated in the first round with five players participating. It is the first time in three years since the 25th LG Cup in 2020 that Japan failed to advance to the round of 16 (at that time, 5 people advanced to the round of 32, but all lost).

Japan’s established title holder, Ryo Ichiriki, 9-dan, and master title holder, Shibano Doramaru, 9-dan, were originally included in the roster, but were replaced with other players as the opening day of Nanga-bae was postponed and overlapped with their own schedule.

The 1st Nangabae World Baduk Open, which is having a rest day (7th), will lead to the quarterfinals on the 8th and the semifinals on the 9th. The matchup for the quarterfinals was Shin Jin-seo-Li Wei-qing (3:1), Ahn Seong-jun-Gu Zi-hao (0:1), Park Gun-ho-Wang Xing-hao (1:0), Lian Shao-Tan Xiao (7:6, opponents in parentheses) ).
