JANICE KIM WINS MAJOR PROMOTION: Janice Kim has just been promoted to 3 dan by Korea's Hanguk Kiwon, the highest rank they've ever awarded to a woman player. "Unfortunately," reports Janice. "I have never concurrently been the same rank as a world champion, as they promoted Lee Se dol to 6 dan at the same time."
