Go Commentary: Rui Naiwei vs Cho Hyeyeon – 12th Female Myeongin

This is a commentary of the final game of the Female Myeongin Cup in Korea. It was played between Rui Naiwei and Cho Hyeyeon on February 18, 2011.

Rui won the first game of the best three, but Cho made it tie in the second, and this is the final game.

Rui Naiwei still the champion

As Rui won this game, she won the Female Myeongin Cup seven times in a row. Rui is getting older, but I think she’s still the top professional Go player amongst female Go players in the world.
