There doesn't seem to be any website with reports: http://www.ranka.intergofed.org/ is empty, the IGF/ranka is more based in Japan and it seems China haven't picked up the baton in reporting the WAGC. If you are good at OCR, here's the player list posted on facebook by the Thai player 'Him'.

American Go eJournal seems to be only source of English news: http://www.usgo.org/news/2017/06/wagc-d ... -pairings/. I did see a few broadcasts on WBaduk: South Korean player beating Hallbjorn from Iceland with AlphaGo-style early 3-3 invasion, and Bai from China beating the Serb.

And Cornel from Romania lost to Bai from China.
South Korea beat Hong Kong by 1.5 points in round 4.

The North Korea player beat the previously undefeated Lukas in round 4 to remain undefeated himself and will play Bai next.

Bai beat the North Korean Ri by 1.5 in round 5 (I didn't bother transcribing all 239 moves):

Cornel beat Daniel Ko from USA.
Live now likely decider China vs South Korea with 2 Alpha Go style 3-3 invasions. NK plays Vietnam, NK won.

Round 6, China vs SK, China won, which should restore some pride after their whitewash by the Koreans at the Gold Cup.

Bai is the only undefeated player after 6 rounds, and 5 players are at 5-1 (North Korea, South Korea, Japan, Russia, and Chinese Taipei). Bai will play the 5-1 Russian player (Dmitry?) in round 7,

Round 7:
Bai (China) beat Russian Dmitry Surin by resign.
Taiwan beat South Korea by resign! so maybe he gets 2nd.

Round 8:
Bai beat Taiwan by resign.
South Korea beat North Korea by half a point!

So Bai of China wins all his games and is champion for 2nd year in a row (and 3rd time), Taiwan 2nd with only 1 loss?

If Taiwan already had 1 loss after round 6, and lost the last to China, he has two losses as well.

Ah, of course. His other loss was to Czech Lukas Podpera. Lukas also lost to the North Korean by a mere half point so has done well.

Feel bad for the North Korea player. He lost to Bai by just 1.5 (was leading after the mid-game) and the last game by half point. Still a great story though.

What happened to the good old days, when us crappy amateur players were treated like gods, had their photos on a results page, their name in a nicely formatted results table. Where are the special interviews with James Davies about how we learnt to play Go from a shoebox? Woe! Woe!
