Western performances

In the first edition, Aaron Ye? and Ali Jabarin were seeded into the second round, but lost immediately to Chinese players Li Qincheng and Li Xuanhao.

From the second edition on, Westerners were not seeded. Ali competed again in the second edition. He was eliminated in the first round by Li Weiqing. North America was represented by Gansheng Shi, who was defeated in the first round by Gu Zihao.

The third edition saw Ali again lose his first game, being knocked out by Shin Minjun. The American slot was apparently taken by a player named Li Liyuan?, of Canada, but no information could be found about him so there is probably a misspelling. He lost in the first round to Shibano Toramaru.

The European representive of the fourth edition was, for the first time, not Ali Jabarin but Pavol Lisy. He was defeated by Onishi Ryuhei. The other Westerner was apparently Hu Ziyang, for North America; however, Go4Go records him as a Chinese professional. In any case, he suffered a first round match up against Ke Jie and was swiftly eliminated.
