China and Korea Even After Samsung Cup Quarter Finals

The 2014 Samsung Cup semifinals took place in Daejeon, Korea on October 14. Because the “elite eight” consisted of four Chinese players and four Korean players, the sponsor arranged the draw so there would be four “China vs Korea” matches. Though Korea might have had the advantage with its top four players in the semifinals, the Chinese players had high rankings as well, with Shi Yue and Zhou Ruiyang as number one and number two.

The results: two Chinese players and two Korean players will proceed, with Park Junghwan 9p against defending champion Tang Weixing 9p and Shi Yue 9p facing Kim Jiseok 9p. Daejeon will host the semifinals from November 5 through November 7. For more information about the the quarter finals including game records, photos, and Shi Yue’s defeat of recent jabango champion Lee Sedol 9p, please visit Go Game Guru.
