Maybe it’s because I’ve been physically and mentally exhausted from going back and forth between Korea and China recently. Shin Jin-seo, 9th Dan (23), the strongest player in Korean baduk, suffered her first consecutive loss of the season.
In the 6th round of the 2nd YK Gunki Cup finals held at the Korea Baduk TV studio on the 16th, Shin Jin-seo was defeated by Kang Dong-yoon 9th Dan in 219 moves.
In the 28th GS Caltex Cup round of 16 held on the 12th, Shin Jin-seo, who suffered a shocking defeat to 9th Dan Baek Hong-seok and stopped at ’29’, fell into a losing streak for the first time in the season. It is the first time in two years and two months since March 2021 that Shin Jin-seo has lost in a row in a general competition rather than a winning game. At that time, he lost to Byeon Sang-il, 9th Dan, in the round of 16 of the SG Cup Myeongin Match, and was defeated by Shin Min-jun, 9th Dan, in the first round of the KB Baduk League Championship Match.
Shin Jin-seo left for China to participate in the Ranker Cup held in China earlier this month, and after returning to Korea, she is constantly digesting the game. He was physically under a lot of pressure. It seems that his recent two consecutive losses have not escaped the aftereffects.메이저사이트
Shin Jin-seo’s record this season was 47 wins and 5 losses. His win rate came down further to 90.4%. For Shin Jin-seo, who is challenging an unprecedented 90% annual win rate, this loss is a big blow.
On this day, the match was split in the beginning. Shin Jin-seo made a big mistake in the early battle, putting Shin Jin-seo at a disadvantage. In the middle, Shin Jin-seo had a chance to turn around, but Shin Jin-seo missed it and threw a stone at the end.
Four of the five losses Shin Jin-seo suffered this year were against knights in their 30s. In particular, Kang Dong-yoon, who is ranked 6th, has the upper hand by winning two matches against Shin Jin-seo this year. Shin Jin-seo is ahead with a career record of 12 wins and 5 losses.
