Go Commentary: Rui Naiwei vs Park Jieun – 9th Jeongganjang Cup

Here is a commentary of the exciting deciding match in the 9th Jeongganjang CupRui Naiwei (9d) beat three Korean female players in a row and faced Park Jieun (9d). They are both the captains of their respective national teams, so it was a real 9 dan showdown. The record between them so far is good for Rui; 13:8, but for their last 10 games the score is 5:5. They are both great female Go players. Especially Rui Naiwei, who has been dominating the female Go world for about 20 years.
