South Korea Eliminated From Huanglongshi Cup

"The 2nd Huanglongshi cup brought several surprises to the table. First, Wang Chenxing scored 7 consecutive victories. Second, Wang rewrite her winning streak from 7 to 8 as she beat Park Jieun at the 9th game. Third, as Park Jieun went down, South Korea lost all team member and eventually eliminated from the championship. Leaving only Japan and China competing for the title.

Wang Chenxing who played black made a big framework at the bottom board at the beginning of the game. Park didn't rush to attack the framework and took care the center instead. Wang made a ko fight wth black 87. Park won the ko, but Wang got to play black 107 and 109 as a compensation. Later, Park won the second ko fight, but gave black a chance to solidify the center.

Park Jieun, the last gate of team Korea

The game entered its endgame and black's position was solid enough to get through. I wonder if black 165 is better to be played at white 166 instead.

Wang Chenxing promoted to 5 dan. I think this is the same case as Song Ronghui's promotion after 7th Jeongganjang cup

Here is the game record:
Wang Chenxing (black) vs. Park Jieun (white). Result: B+2.5
