In 2014, she won three games at the 4th Huang Longshi Cup, as Team China’s first player, and China won the tournament.

This year, she won fives consecutive games against O Junga 2p, Hoshiai Shiho 1p, O Yujin 2p, Xie Yimin 6p and Kim Chaeyoung 2p. This was her 6th game in the tournament.

Song’s style of play is thick and solid. She’s also good at fighting, but it seems like she prefers peaceful games because she’s good at the endgame.

Choi is currently the strongest woman (ranked #1) amongst Korean Professional players.

She contested the final of the 5th Women’s Kisung, but lost to Rui Naiwei 9p in 2011. However, it didn’t take long for her to win her first title, the 13th Women’s Myeongin, in 2012.

In 2013, she won the Women’s Myeongin again and brought the 3rd Huang Longshi Cup back to Korea. She defeated Yu Zhiying 5p, Li He 5p and Wang Chenxing 5p, to seize victory for Team Korea.

In 2014, she won the 5th Bingsheng Cup, defeating Rui Naiwei in the final, and it was her first international title. She also won the Women’s Myeongin for the third time in a row.

Choi’s style of play is flexible and powerful. She prefers a fighting style game, and her nickname is ‘girl of great strength’.

This was Choi’s first game in this tournament, and it was the most interesting match in the final round.
