Are the results online somwhere? I'm just going by the half-dozen or so games per round that Wbaduk broadcast.


I can only find the results in Chinese, like this

http://sports.sina.com.cn/go/2016-05-26 ... 5900.shtml


Both China and Korea lost some big names in this round: Tuo Jiaxi, Choi Cheolhan, Park Yeonghun are the highest ranked casualty. Overall in this round it's China 27 Korean 18. But yesterday Korea did well: China 8 Korea 12.

China already controlled 22 groups. USA secured one. The remaining 27 will be decided tomorrow.

Having Jujo Jiang in the world group did seem a bit harsh to me. Back in the 80s he was one of China's top players, and beat a lot of top Japanese in the supergo matches. Does he have US citizenship now? I seem to recall he and wife Rui Naiwei (who lost to Yu Bin) leaving China was related to Tiananmen square etc, but I thought she moved back a few years ago and she plays for China now, did he not? If the idea of the world group is to encourage and support the new pros/players from outside Asia (be they EGF/AGA pros like Eric Lui or Ali Jabarin, or Europeans who went pro in Asia like Dinerstein/Catalin), I don't see how Jujo creaming them all (if he does as expected) achieves that.

Also the 2 women in the open are out: Song Ronghui beat Yan Ning 2d but then lost to Huang Xin 4d and Choi Jung lost to Huang Jingyuan 2d.

I would not have thought that Jujo was eligible to represent the US. I thought there was a requirement that you had been active in the past year, and I see his last tournament in the US as 2012: http://agagd.usgo.org/player/3142/.

Won Sungjin (9d, kr) got knocked out by Huang Yunsong (4d, cn) who is one of the upcoming young Chinese talents. Perhaps not such an upset though as Huang was ranked higher in the April Korean world rankings:

2 other 9d international title winners got through though: Jiang Weijie (9d, cn) scraped through with a half point win over Kim Junghyun (5d, kr), and Baek Hongsuk (9d, kr, he won 2 international titles in 2012 before interrupting his Go career for military service) had a comfortable win over Zhu Yuanhao (4d, cn).

I think it has been brought up somewhere, but Zhang Xuan (Chang Hao's wife) is mistakenly written as Zhang Xiang somehow...
(btw, Zhang Xiang is an active Singaporean player)
