Unfortunate to see a 0:4 sweep :(. Also, just wanted to express my thanks as well for posting these updates, much appreciated!

You are very welcome! I am happy to be of some help.
Yes it was a little sad to see both Japan and Europe teams got swept. I knew Zhejiang was probably too strong for Japan to handle. But I thought Surma would have a reasonable chance to beat Sun Penyu 5d. Sun finished 59th in last year's pro exam so you could argue that Surma was even favored in this match up. But overall it is still good tournament especially for Surma. I look forward to their performance in the upcoming MLily Cup.

Can you post the final standings in English? I suspect/fear that team Europe came last but I am not sure.

By the way, some of you might have noticed that there were a host of Hangzhou teams in each league. That is because Hangzhou is the capital city of Zhejiang Province, which has a rich Go tradition. World champions Ma Xiaochun, Yu Bing and now Ke Jie are all from Zhejiang. As the capital of Zhejiang the city of Hangzhou has a large concentration of go talents, and Hangzhou Go Institute almost serve as the counter part of China Go Institute in Southern China, organizing and hosting a large number of international and domestic Go events. The recent Ke Jie - AlphaGo matches also took place in Wuzhen which is northern Zhejiang, and co-sanctioned by Zhejiang Sports Bureau. Hangzhou Supor is the reigning A-League champion. And finally Hangzhou is my hometown and a beautiful tourist destination. :) My only complain is that it is over crowded especially during holidays, due to the influx of millions of tourists. But it is great city to Go if you happen to be in the vicinity!

Uberdude, thanks for pointing out this interesting introduction of the Tian Yuan Tower by Chris Garlock! But I have to correct one thing though, that restaurant on top is a Go bowl, not a Go stone :)

The B-League is playing the final round today. Team Japan is matched up with 21 Culture - Shanghai Foreign Language Univ. Team Zhejiang already advanced to AL, but there is still another spot that is up for grabs. Unfortunately there are already two teams with 10 points so team Japan is already eliminated with 7 points. I will report the final standing later.

There are two other events that are going on right now. One is round 8 of A-League. Ichiriki Ryo is playing for Team Chongqing for the first time, giving Gu Li a rest. His opponent is world champion Jiang Weijie 9p from Team Shandong. The game started out with Jiang 9p (playing black) developed big mojo on lower and right side, then Ichiriki reduced from outside, giving black solid territory but built up white's own mojo on the left side. Then Jiang split the left side white influence and white is attacking that group. Hard for me to tell which side is ahead, but black has more cash and is probably easier to manage.

Another very interesting event is a human - AI pair go competition. There are 3 human players paired with 3 AIs. The pairing goes like this: Ma Xiaochun 9p paired with Tsinghua University's ShenSuanZi (literally means Divine Calculator), Lee Changho 9p paired with Korean AI DolBaram, and Hei Jiajia (Joanne Missingham) paired with Taiwan's National Chiao Tung Univ.'s CGI. The three pairings will play each other so there will be 3 games, and all 3 will be played today. First game is between Hei Jiajia/CGI and Lee Changho/DolBaram.

I just saw on Fox Go Server that Hei Jiajia/CGI won the game by 3.5 points.

Thanks a lot for the updates, wolfking! I don't think they're available anywhere else in English, so this is great.

Earlier in the thread, someone asked whether these games were in goratings. As of now, I believe only games with a game record are available, but macelee posted that he was going to begin including games with a known result, but no record, and push them out to goratings. I don't believe that has happened, however viewtopic.php?f=10&t=9692&p=195679&hilit=goratings#p195679.

The B-League has finished the last round play in a rather dramatic fashion. Before the last round even started, Zhejiang Kunlun had 12 points and already advanced to AL on tie breakers if not on points alone. The remaining AL spot will fall on Quzhou Lanke (10 pts), Llasa Go Institute (10 pts), or Jiangxi Xinjing Titanium Industry (9 points). Quzhou's opponent is Hebei Xin'ao which has only 7 points with no chance of advancing. But Hebei tried their best to play the spoiler role and got a tie, giving Quzhou 11 points. Llasa is playing Jiangxi so every game counts and it turned out every half point counts, literally! Lee Jihyun 4p of Jiangxi won first at position 2, but then Zhang Qiang 4p of Llasa also won at position 3. After that it's Jiangxi's team captain Guo Yuzheng 5p squeazed out a half point win against Llasa's Na Hyun 6p. Now who advances hinges on the final game at position 4 between Llasa's Pan Fei 5p and Jiangxi's Zhu Yuanhao 3p. Pan 5p had a chance to turn the game into a three ko jigo but missed it, and Zhu Yuanhao won by another half point! That game started at 12:30pm and did not finish until after 7pm.

So Jiangxi beat Llasa 3:1 and thus had 11 points, same as Quzhou, while Llasa ended up with 10 points and was eliminated. Unfortunate for Jiangxi they had same round score and game score as Quzhou, but had 4 less opponent round score. So the local team Quzhou became the second team to advance to AL.

Final standing of B-League (numbers in parenthesis are round score, game score, opponent round score)

1. Zhejiang Kunlun (13, 48, 73)
2. Quzhou Lanke (11, 38, 74)

The above two teams promoted to A-League in 2018

3. Jiangxi Xinjing Titanium Industry (11, 38, 70)
4. Llasa Go Institute (10, 38, 74)
5. 21 Culture - Shanghai Foreign Language Univ. (9, 34, 71)
6. Xiamen Wenguang Financial (9, 32, 77)
7. Shenzhen Hande (9, 32, 63)
8. Hebei Xin'ao (8, 38, 61)
9. Hulu Island (8, 34, 58)
10. Yunnan (8, 34, 52)
11. China-Japan Friendship (8, 30, 63)
12. China Mobile Shanghai (6, 24, 62)
13. China Pingmei (5, 26, 62)

The three teams below are demoted to C-League in 2018

14. Hangzhou Go School (5, 24, 58)
15. Chongqing Go Institute (4, 22, 53)
16. Beijing Qinglan (4, 20, 53)

Team Japan tied 21 Culture - Shanghai Foreign Language Univ in the final round
1. Ida Atshushi 0:1 Zhang Wei 6p
2. Yu Zhengqi 1:0 Kim Dongho 5p
3. Hsu Chiayuan 0:1 Wang Yanhao 4p
4. Shibano Toramaru 1:0 Yan Zaiming 3p

I think Japan has improved and would have a chance to get to AL if Ichiriki Ryo played.
