Xie Yimin Saved Japan

Wang Chenxing who single handedly eliminated Korea at the 2nd Huanglongshi Cup met the last member of team Japan, Xie Yimin. Xie is the last obstacle between China and the trophy of Huanglongshi Cup.

In this game, Xie played black while Wang played white. Xie went for a frontal attack starting from black 55. After black 61, the game went into a big fighting game. Xie showed her mastery in attacking and got a promising position. Black 117 was the deciding move and after Xie controlled the center completely, Wang resigned.

Xie Yimin, the last defense of Japan.
With this, Japan still has their chance to win, though it is very hard and almost impossible. Let see if Xie can survive the next game and increase the chance or not.

Wang Chenxing's winning streak finally ended. It seems that her red jacket didn't bring her good luck in this game.

Here is the game record:
