The 1st 3 rounds of the 15th Chinese (incl. Taiwan) Changqi Cup are underway over the next few days. This is of particularly interest to me (and presumably attendees) as the semi-finals will be played in Cambridge (England) this summer as part of the 5th Annual World Collegiate Championships. Current champion Tan Xiao 9d lost to Tuo Jiaxi 9d in the 2nd round. Other big name Chinese pros like Ke Jie, Chen Yaoye, Zhou Ruiyang, Shi Yue, Lian Xiao, Fan Tingyu, Mi Yuting, Jiang Weijie, new 9p youngsters Gu Zihao and Xie Erhao, popular commentator Meng Tailing are still in. Bracket at https://gotoeveryone.k2ss.info/cn/cc/.

Here's Ke Jie's game, with the same "joseki" as he played against AlphaGo at top right (and of course a early 3-3 invasion new joseki as so many games do these days).

Lian Xiao beat Fan Tingyu by resign
Mi Yuting beat Xie Erhao by resign
Fan Yin beat Ke Jie by resign :sad: . Ke invaded deeply but wasn't as good at living as AlphaGo Zero: he got one eye and tried to use aji to get a sente cut to survive but failed.
Shi Yue beat Zhou Ruiyang, by half says wbaduk but probably 1 in Ing rules unless the were asymmetric time penalties. They fought a 2 move approach ko for 100 moves.

I hope it's not off topic to ask - does anyone know what this event is going to offer for (non Chinese speaking if that matters) amateur enthusiasts? Is there any sort of a timetable planned out?

Here's a timetable:

As a local Go player but not a student participating in the tournament I presume I will be able to wander around and look at the students playing their games, maybe the pros (in the DoubleTree Hilton (ex Garden House) hotel next to Uni centre), and watch some lectures and join in a simul if there are places available after the students.

So, with the notable exception of Ke Jie, that's pretty much the crème-de-la-crème of Chinese pros.

Chinese pro ratings at end of March 2018:
1. Ke Jie
2. Mi Yuting
3. Lian Xiao
4. Chen Yaoye
5. Gu Zihao
6. Shi Yue
7. Tuo Jiaxi

Thanks - sounds good.
Do you know if there will be formal commentaries for the pro games? Or a space for observers to study the games?
