Bingsheng Cup (兵圣杯) is a female international tournament created in 2010. First prize is 200,000 RMB, second 70,000 RMB. In 2013, prizes raised to 250,000 and 100,000 RMB.
In the first edition, the Bingsheng Cup is held at Qionglong Mountain (穹窿山) in Suzhou, China, hence the long name Qionglong Mountain Bingsheng Cup (穹窿山兵圣杯). For this reason Bingsheng Cup is referred to as Qionglong Cup in some English media. It is a knock-out tournament with 16 players and 30 minutes main time with 30 seconds byo-yomi.
In Taiwan the winner of the preliminary tournament was Hei Jiajia, but an odd situation changed her to be the Oceania representative: A player from Thailand at first won the right to represent Oceania but unfortunately had to cancel because of personal issues. Faced with this change on a short notice, the tournament organizers invited Hei Jiajia as the Oceania representative, because of her dual citizenship with Australia and Taiwan. A new playoff was quickly run among four other Taiwanese participants to replace Hei, and was won by Zhang Kaixin (one SGF file includes preliminary matches of the tournament in Taiwan and you can download it from the Italian blog Weichi Taiwan).
