The 2nd Bingsheng Cup final was played on October 13, 2011 in Suzhou, China.
The 2nd Bingsheng Cup
Interestingly, this was a replay of one of last year’s semi final matches, where Park prevailed.
Happily for Park, but sadly for Tang, the result from last year’s semi final was repeated this year, and Park won the Bingsheng Cup for a second year.
This is Park’s fourth international title and yet another trophy to add to her impressive collection.
About the Bingsheng Cup
The Bingsheng Cup was first played last year in Qionglong Mountain, Suzhou, China. It’s sometimes also referred to as the Qionglong Cup for this reason.
It’s an all female knockout tournament between 16 players: 5 from China, 4 from Korea, 3 from Japan and 1 each from Taiwan, Europe, North America and Oceania.
Amateurs are allowed to take part if they win the right to represent their region.
At last year’s inaugural tournament, Joanne Missingham (also known as Hei Jiajia) caused quite a stir when she stormed into the final to face Park as a mere 1p.
This left the big three, China, Japan and Korea, to contest the finals.
