Gyu-Byeong Choi, 9th Dan, failed to achieve his 3rd consecutive win in the Nongshim Baeksan Cup.

Choi Gyu-byeong lost to Japanese veteran Masashi Takemiya 9th Dan in 198 moves in the 6th round of the 2nd round of the 1st Nongshim Baeksan Mugwan World Baduk Senior Championship held in Shanghai, China on the 20th.

Korea’s 9th dan Cho Hoon-hyeon and Yoo Chang-hyuk, Japan’s 9th dan Takemiya and Yoda Norimoto, and China’s 9th dan Nie Weiping and Ma Xiaochun are preparing for the match.

Choi Kyu-byeong, who had won two games in a row until the previous day,

carried out a pragmatic strategy by going for 3/3 from the beginning against Takemiya, famous for ‘Uju-ryu’.

However, after the middle of the game, they failed to effectively cut down Takemiya’s huge white force, and defeat came.

Choi Gyu-byeong engaged in a life-or-death battle with Baek Dae-ma at the last minute,

but was unable to turn the game around due to lack of strength.

In the final round held on the 21st, 9th Dan Takemiya and 9th Dan Ma Xiaochun of China will face off.

The prize money for winning the Baeksan Cup,

a senior national competition for professional players born before 1969, is 180 million won.
