The Fourth Female 9 dan

Cho Hyeyeon is officially the fourth female player to receive 9 dan diploma (as of 21 December 2010). She followed the step of Feng Yun, Rui Naiwei, and Park Jieun to achieve this level.


Cho Hyeyeon (9 dan)

I'm still looking for the reason why she got the promotion. I'll post here if I get yhe answer (if you know the answer, please tell me :D)

Edit: It seems she got the promotion due to the success of South Korea's female team winning gold medal at the Asian Games. She along with Lee Minjin and Kim Yunyoung got the promotion. Lee Minjin was promoted to 6 dan while Kim Yunyoung to 3 dan.

Also, she celebrated her promotion by beating Lee Sedol (9 dan) in GS Galtex preliminary.

Congratulations Ms. Hyeyeon!

Here is the game record:
Cho Hyeyeon (black) vs. Lee Sedol (white). Result: B+R.
