Is it Cheong-Gwan-Jang that drags Byeon Sang-Il and supports Hong Seong-Ji or KiX of Shin Jin-Seo, the ‘strongest’?
The 2022-2023 KB Kookmin Bank Baduk League Championship Match, which starts on the 24th, was compressed into a confrontation between Cheonnok Jeong, who showed off his overwhelming power from the regular league, and Kicks, who barely joined the postseason on the last train and went on a winning streak.스포츠토토
Public attention is focused on this confrontation in which solid power and sharp momentum collide head-on.
This season, the baduk league was operated as a two-league system, the Sudam League and the Nanga League. Jeong Kwan Jang Cheon Nok took first place in the Sudam League with 13 wins and 3 losses. On the other hand, Kicks entered the postseason with a record of 10 wins and 6 losses, finishing 3rd in the Nanga League. After beating Celltrion in the semi-playoffs and Korea Price Information in the playoffs with 2 wins and 1 loss, they succeeded in advancing to the championship match.
The team colors of the two teams are clearly different. If Jeonggwanjangcheonnok has an even power that doesn’t fall out of any place overall, Kix’s current strongest ace Shin Jinseo takes the lead and takes the lead, and then his teammates follow him.
The ace of Jeonggwanjang Cheonnok is Byeon Sangil, 3rd in the Korean Baduk ranking, 9th Dan. Byeon Sang-il won a total of 15 wins (7 losses), including winning all 6 matches in the ace match this season.
There is no ace match in the postseason, but it is a clear one-win card from the point of view of Cheong-Gwan-Jang Cheon-Nok. In addition, Hong Seong-ji, 9th Dan (12 wins, 4 losses) supports him, and Kwon Hyo-jin, 6th Dan (6 wins, 6 losses), etc. are also regarded as resources that can give him a win at any time.
On the other hand, Kix is called a candidate for the championship just because he has a 9-dan Shin Jin-seo. The number of wins won by the Kiks members this season is a total of 38, and Shin Jin-seo was responsible for more than half of them, 20 wins (2 losses). In other words, it means that the reliance on one Shin Jin-seo was high, and at the same time, it also means that other articles were sluggish.
But in the postseason, the atmosphere changed dramatically. Shin Jin-seo is running 18 consecutive wins in the postseason, including 6 wins in 6 games, and Kim Chang-hoon, 6th Dan, Kim Seung-jae, 9th Dan, and Baek Hyeon-woo, 5th Dan, who were sluggish throughout the regular season, came back to life. In this way, Kiks only needed to win 2 out of the remaining 4 games under the calculation that Shin Jin-seo would win 1, relieving the burden.
The first and second rounds of the championship match will be held on the 24th and 25th, and if there is no win or loss here, the final third round will be held on the 29th. The battle for the championship, which is fiercer than ever, begins.
