mgoetze: Well, my sources claim that the following four are tied at 4:0 each: Hiraoka Satoshi 8d (Japan), Kim Cheong-hwan 6d (Korea), Lezek Soldan 6d (Poland) and Cornel Burzo 6d (Rumania).
Stefan: Try a refresh on the "Results" page, m. As these are results after 6 rounds, it looks like China will not go to the semi-final knock-out stage, which is a big surprise to me. And all they did wrong was losing to Japan, so it is not like the Chinese representative really dropped the ball in a major way. But good for Emil and Dmytri, of course. Let's see whether the Europeans can break the Korean stranglehold on international titles.
mgoetze: My Korean isn't good enough to even find a results page!
GoStone: Try here: http://www.iwabc.com/english/result/01.asp. The Korean results page http://www.iwabc.com/result/01.asp gives a slightly different table and shows the results of the final and semi-final.
HansWalthaus: Could somebody give a meaning to the two acronyms in the scoring table: SOS and SOSOS? And their use in determining the winner? I got this so far: Sum Opponents Scores, and Sum Opponents Sum Of Opponents.
Fhayashi: Sum Of SOS?
Dieter: these links are broken:
RetEsz I found this page:
This is a qualification tournament for the World Amateur Baduk Championship to Korea in Oktober 2005. I am surprised. In 2005 was World Championship in Japan. What is this tournament ?
