Read report of the 1st Qinling Mountain Cup about "our" 2 new pro Pavol Lisy (1-p) and Ali Jabarin (1-p) on http://eurogotv.com/
(a funny story: in the 1st round, a local Chinese 6-d amateur played Pavol Lisy. He thought Pavol was 1-d...amateur; so, he was quite surprised to be so dramaticaly destroyed :-).
They have also been impressive in Japan: see report "Pavol and Ali at the 11th Sankei tournament in Japan", also on http://eurogotv.com/
(it is then amazing to notice that nor Pavol neither Ali are good enough for the top divisions of the Chinese Weichi Academy: they play now only in the 7th out of the 13 divisions (each division counts with 6 players).

A jubango is a 10 game match between two players. The first player to win six games wins the match.
Two of the world's top Go players, Lee Sedol and Gu Li, played a jubango to decide which of them was the stronger player (and probably thus the present world best player - NDLR).
The most anticipated Go event for decades concluded on September 28, 2014, when Lee Sedol defeated Gu Li in their 8th game of the historic 10 game match.
