GBA Cup

    Keywords: Tournament

The GBA Cup, formally the GBA Cup Chinese Weiqi Master Championship, is a Chinese professional tournament which has so far been held only once, in December 2021. In that inaugural edition, it was won by Ding Hao.

The tournament is organised by the China Weiqi Association and the Shenzhen Bao'an People's Government, with the approval of the Shenzhen Bureau of Culture.

It was a fairly large single elimination knockout of 32 players, without any seeding. Despite the lack of seeding, top players did participate. Apart from Rong Yi 7p, all participants were at least 8p, and most of them 9p.

Ke Jie was unexpectedly eliminated in the first round, by Chen Yaoye.

To see the results of the first edition in crosstable format, see the [ext] Go to Everyone! section.
