Cho Hyeyeon Became Female Myeongin Challenger

Cho Hyeyeon who recently became the fourth female 9 dan successfully won the final game of the 12th Female Myeongin main tournament and won the right to challenge Rui Naiwei the title holder.

This is Cho's fourth consecutive challenge. She also became the challenger in three previous season, but never success.

Cho beat Park Jieun (9 dan) at the final game. Previously, Park beat Cho at the winner section semi-final, but Cho managed to stay calm and won at the final.

Cho sacrificed her stones at the bottom left to create a big framework at the center. Park broke the center moyo, but Cho's territory at the upper left corner is big enough to make her victorious.

The first game will be played at January 13. Rui has a 33-16 record in her favor against Cho.
