Herman: According to a strong Chinese player, Qiu Bairui is not a pro
tderz: Herman, Yes, I came from that source and started looking for information.
I also tried to verify on Chinese sites, but didn't succeed.
I didn't find his name among the pro list (which perhaps lists only active pros?). Anyway, my Chinese is now less than intermediate, otherwise I could ask on a Chinese GoDiscussion forum or a Chinese Senseis. First I need the characters for his name and there are about five possibilities for this surname.
