A busy week for Gu Li and Lee Sedol
Here’s a quick wrap up of recent news, with more detailed reports to follow…
The 4th Zhaoshang Cup
The 10th Chunlan Cup
The 10th Chunlan Cup is also underway in China.
Round 1 took place on March 26, and the seeded players will join the tournament for round 2 tomorrow (Friday, March 28).
Once again, Lee and Gu have been paired to play together, which will be their second game this week. Perhaps the universe is having a joke at their expense?
The Chunlan Cup has also been interesting so far because Japan’s Iyama Yuta 9p, Cho U 9p, Kono Rin 9p and Murakawa Daisuke 7p have all progressed through the first round. They defeated Wang Yuanjun 7p (Taiwan), Fan Hui 2p (Europe), Fan Tingyu 9p (Ing Cup title holder) and Lian Xiao 7p respectively.
We’ll post a more detailed report on the Chunlan Cup after round 2 concludes tomorrow.
MLily Gu vs Lee Jubango
As I said above, the third game of Lee and Gu’s jubango will take place this weekend, on Sunday March 30, in Sichuan, China.
This will be their third game together in a week, and also the most important one for both players.
Lee Sedol currently leads the 10 game match 2-0, so the pressure will be on Gu Li to catch up. Hopefully his recent win in the Zhaoshang Cup will buoy his spirits.
All in all, a great week for fans of Gu Li and Lee Sedol!
We’ll be back over the weekend with more news and a commentary to follow later, of course.
