Lee, Semi / 2023-11-17
The 18th KPMC was held with 56 representative players around the world and with 7 rounds.
On August 31, there were Round 6 and 7 to confirm the final ranking.
In Round 6, Korean representative player, Hwan-young Choi with 5 wins had the match, which could be considered the final to confirm the champion, against Chongzhe Tang from China, who also had no lose.
During the match, Mr. Choi was ahead of the 90 percent winning rate until the middle of the game, but suffered a come-from-behind defeat by a big misunderstanding in the central battle.
Mr. Tang said in an interview, “I am really pleased to win the champion of the Go tournament held in Korea, a Go powerhouse country. I think Mr. Choi thought the White two stones in the central battle could be uncaptured, but he might miss the net move. The fortune was on my side, I believe.”
