While Sumire and Risa are steaming ahead in the 1-dan section, the foreigners are having a tough time. Antii is on 0-7, Indonesian-born Rafif Shidqi Fitrah is on 0-2 and Chang Fukang of Malaysia is on 1-2. Given her pedigree back to Kitani Minoru, we might also have hoped for a brighter start by Cho Kosumi, but she's on 0-3.


This was posted in Nakamura shodan's thread, and I was wondering... Do we have any further information about them? Regarding both SE players I only have that and an Ashashi Simbun's piece from 2019. But I don't have anything new on Cho Kosumi nor on Francis Meyer.

Also, did this year bring us any new pro outside the usual suspects? [I was going to say outside East Asia, but that no longer fits the thrust of my meaning]

Take care.

Okay, we seem to be lucky. Japan sent Zeng/Chang Fukang [*] to the Globis CUP in 2018. He lost both of his games, but he was facing Xie Ke and Fujisawa Rina.

Take care.

[*] I think these are alternative versions of the same name. Not sure. Date of birth and picture seem to match.
