Could someone fluent in Chinese double-check the name of the "B-League"?

The article says 围已联赛 but I think the second character should be 乙. Not only does it make more sense, I get one hit (this page) googling for 围已联赛 but thousands for 围乙联赛, and the ones I checked all seem to be about weiqi.

The choice of 已 in the article was most likely a typo as 已 and 乙 have the same pronunciation. If I have to guess without any outside information, I would pick 乙 since it could mean "B-level" / "2nd-tier" in this context-- see the [ext] Heavenly Stems article on Wikipedia for more information).

You guys are right, I have updated it. Often, 甲, 乙, 丙, 丁, ... would be translated to A, B, C, D, ...
