OK, now some serious business. The third round of the 24th Mingren was played. The title holder is Jiang Weijie 5p and is hopping for an easy opponent. But - I guess - it won't be an easy player who will reach the final games.

In the third round, on 5th July, Kong Jie beat Gu Li by resignation as like Dang Yifei beat Chen Yaoye which is for me kinda surprisingly. The next semifinal will play Chang Hao and Li Zhe, who defeaded Zhou Ruiyang and Gu Lingyi by 0.5 and 3.5 points.
The semifinals will be played on 7th July, the winners of these matches will face each other and play a Best-of-Three Play-off.
