Last round of 32: qdd(P) vs All_Kill 9d
The preliminaris rounds are over. We've got 13 players
qualified for the last round of 32. Amazingly China swept the qualifying
competetion. Chinese players got all but one spot. Only one korean player,dbfwlsd(P), managed to pass the selection. Japan as usual out of competition,
only 1 player managed to get to round 3 and not further. Western players didn't
even show up for their games, there were a few European players to cheer upCornell 9d but he never came.
There were some unexpected results, even sensational:
allKO(P) lost to Delight(P)
trace(P) lost to sagggg 9d
tryortry 9d lost to BC2012 9d
woojunglee 9d lost to MIALBJ(P) in final round.
Today the first game of the last 32 round took place. Chinese
player, qdd(P), who qualified from the preliminaries challenged Korean
player, All_Kill 9d. The betting was in favor of Korean player 70-30%, but he
didn't meet the expectations of his fans. qdd(P) won the game by resignation
and advanced to the next round.
Even though Korean players failed in the preliminary
rounds, they still have superstar players such as Dcember(P) who was
unstoppable in Hanzhong rival games and won 4 games in a row, defeating in
the last game Jiang Weijie 9p.
Two games are scheduled for tomorrow:
1. BWMM(P) vs OneFlySea 9d
2. xg(P) vs gunguntoy 9d.
