China-Japan-Korea Master Tournament

A new trilateral tournament is going to be held from July 24-27. Three professionals who hold Master title from China, South Korea, and Japan will compete to decide who is the strongest Master.

The participants are: Gu Li Mingren (China), Lee Changho Myeongin (S. Korea), and Iyama Yuta Meijin (Japan).

Lee Changho

Iyama is the youngest contestant here. He hasn't performed very well against Lee and Gu. His personal record is 0-2 to Lee Changho (if I'm not mistaken. Correct me if I'm wrong.) and his record against Gu Li is 0-1.

Iyama Yuta

Meanwhile, fans seem to be waiting the game Lee Changho vs. Gu Li. They have met in many international games before, but I think the game will have many fireworks.

Here is the schedule:
July 24: Game day 1 between 2 players.
July 25: Day 1 loser meet the third player.
July 27: Winner of day 1 vs. winner of day 2 to decide the champion.
