On November 5, 2011, three stalwarts of the Go world, Takemiya Masaki (9p) of Japan, Cho Hunhyun (9p) of Korea and Nie Weiping (9p) of China met to face each other in the Chibi Ancient Battlefield Cup. It was like the 1st Ing Cup final in 1989 all over again!
The next two players in the Top 20 Go Players of 2010 are Lee Changho (9p) and Qiu Jun (8p). Lee Changho is the most well-known player in the Go world today, and his career is extraordinary. Qiu Jun became a pro when he was 12 in 1994. He won the Mingren (Master – Chinese equivalent of Meijin) in 2003. He has become one of the top players in China.
