(Hangame Baduk = Reporter Han Chang-gyu) The메이저사이트 46th SG Cup Myeongin’ Tournament has entered the winner’s group quarterfinals. The winners of the round of 16 will play in the winner’s bracket, and the quarterfinals will be a match between the top ranked players and rookies born in the 2000s.

A catastrophe occurred in the first match of the winner’s group quarterfinals held at K Baduk Studio on the afternoon of the 18th. Shin Jin-seo, 9th dan, the undisputed top ranker who has been at the top of the rankings for 45 consecutive months, was caught by Park Ji-hyeon, 5th dan.

Jihyun Park’s ranking of 5th dan is 67th. The difference in ranking points between Shin Jin-seo and 9th dan is 1,170 points. He was no different from an unknown rookie until he won the Ha Chan-Seok Guk’s Most Wanted Gifted Competition two days ago. Ji-Hyeon Park, 5th Dan, won this tilted game after 3 hours and 53 minutes and 157 moves.

“Seok-jeom died in the beginning and it continued to be bad. I thought it was a no-win fight at the end, but I thought we turned it around through it.” (Park Ji-hyun)
“I think I had a few opportunities to get better, but I missed them. I should have gotten relief in the middle of the game, but when I got there, it became so strange.” (Shin Jin-seo)

Shin Jin-seo, 9th dan, has lost several times to knights of the same age born in 2000 in official matches, but this is the first time he has lost to a younger knight since joining the team in 2012. Park Ji-hyeon, 5th dan, is five years younger than Shin Jin-seo, 9th dan.

As 9th dan Shin Jin-seo was pushed out, the tension among the players in the losers’ bracket rose significantly. Shin Jin-seo’s opponent in the second round of the losers’ bracket is Heo Young-ho, 9th dan. Shin Jin-seo, 9th dan, lost the first round of the finals in the 44th round and then went on to win consecutive games in the losers’ bracket and even lifted the championship cup. Ji-Hyeon Park’s 5th dan will face the winners of Jung-Hwan Park and Woo-Jin Han in the winner’s bracket semifinals.

Shin Jin-seo, 9th dan, who played the last match before the Asian Games, said after the news, “Regardless of the result, things are not very good these days. Although there is not a long time left, I will prepare well. I think I will have to use a lot on the physical aspect and the skill aspect as well. “I will pay attention,” he said.

The prize money for the 46th SG Cup Masters Tournament is 70 million won for the winner and 25 million won for the runner-up. Following the round of 16 tournament, which also includes a repechage match, the winner is determined through the third round of the final. The time limit is 100 minutes, and the countdown is 3 times per minute.
