On the afternoon of the 17th, the 2020 National Go Final Tournament closed in Wuxi. Shanghai teenager Wang Chuxuan won the "No. 1 prize" in the men's division of the national fixed-stage match with a record of 12 wins and 2 losses. After Wang Xinghao in 2016 and Zeng Yuanhai in 2017, this is the third Shanghai chess player to win the national “No. 1” in five years. It is worth mentioning that Wang Xinghao, Zeng Yuanhai, and Wang Chuxuan are all from the Shanghai Qingyi Go Club.
Shanghai Qingyi Go Club, founded in 2010 by the famous Go coach Liu Yiyi and the world amateur Go champion Hu Yuqing, is the elite training base for youth sports chess of Shanghai Sports Bureau. After ten years of hard work, Qingyi Go has trained 23 professional players, including last year's best rookie Wang Xinghao, National Mind Games women champion Tang Jiawen and other outstanding players. After ten years of exploration, Shanghai Go has created a new way to cultivate outstanding Go talents.
In December 2010, the four-year-old Wang Chuxuan, led by his father, came to the newly established Shanghai Qingyi Go Club and began his journey of learning chess. Under the careful training of Hu Yuqing and Liu Yiyi, the children of Wang Chuxuan made rapid progress. After learning chess for less than 3 years, Wang Chuxuan was promoted to the amateur level 5. In the summer of 2013, the Qingyi team decided to let Wang Chuxuan, who was only seven years old, participate in the national fixed-stage match and feel the atmosphere of the competition. Since 2013, Wang Chuxuan has participated in 8 consecutive national Go rounds.
Under the careful training of the Qingyi team, Wang Chuxuan grew up in training and competition. In 2016, Wang Chuxuan defeated South Korean amateur master Song Hongxi 7th and showed his first edge. Last year, Wang Chuxuan won the championship of the Hengshui Cup National Amateur Go Tournament, laying a good foundation for this year's dash.
The Shanghai Chess Academy has always been concerned about supporting Qingyi Go young players' punching training. This year, the head coach of the Shanghai Go team Liu Shizhen has repeatedly studied the training plan of the punching class with Hu Yuqing and Liu Yiyi of the Qingyi team. The Qingyi team assigned Zhu Yuanhao 5th Duan as the head of the coaching team of the Chong Duan class, and organized amateur players Zhao Yan, Ye Lingyun, Lou Yunxiao and others to fight against the Chong Duan teenagers, which enhanced the actual combat capabilities of Wang Chuxuan and other Chong Duan players.
Ten years of sharpening a sword! After ten years of hard work, Wang Chuxuan finally came to the fore in the national "Go College Entrance Examination" this year, and entered the professional Go with his excellent results as the "No. It is reported that Shanghai will make an exception for Wang Chuxuan to participate in the Wei B League to provide a big opportunity for its rapid growth. As Qingyi Go head coach Liu Yiyi said: "The real test of Go is after entering the professional ranks. Although the road to professional Go is rugged and difficult, now that you get your ticket, let's continue to work harder!" (Xinmin Evening News reporter Zhang Jiandong)
