World Collegiate Tournament Started

10 July 2018 - 11 July 2018

The 5th International World Collegiate Weichi Championships (IWCC) started on Tuesday in Cambridge with an Opening Ceremony. About an hour of speeches was followed by a dinner. Participants were welcomed by a number of dignitaries, including BGA President Toby Manning.

The first three rounds of the Championship take place on Wednesday, with the remaining 3 rounds on Thursday. UK hopes are resting on British Champion Daniel Hu, from Cambridge University and current British Champion, but he lost 2 of his first 3 games..

Alongside the Championship is the semifinals of the Chang Qi Cup, a Professional Tournament normally held in China. The photo shows the start of the second game between Shi Yue and Mi Yuting; Mi Yuting defeated Shi Yue 2-0 in the best of-three match. The other match, between Tuo Jiaxi and Lian Xiao was 1-1, with the deciding game to be played on Thursday.
