2023 Samsung Fire & Marine Insurance begins round of 32 tournament at Goyang City Global Campus on the 16th
The wild cards that will participate in the 2023 Samsung Fire & Marine Insurance World Baduk Masters,
which opens on the 16th, have been decided.
On the 3rd, the Korea Baduk Association announced that Andrii Kravets (32) Chodan,
winner of the 2023 European Baduk Championship, was selected as a wild card for this year’s Samsung Fire & Marine Insurance.
Kravets, from Ukraine, brought joy to fans in his home country, which is at war,
by winning the trophy at the European Baduk Championship held last July.
It has been four years since 2019 that players from countries other than Korea, China, Japan, and Taiwan
participated in the Samsung Fire & Marine Insurance finals. 카지노사이트위키
Samsung Fire & Marine Insurance, an open competition,
switched to an online competition due to the spread of the novel coronavirus infection (COVID-19) in 2020.
Instead of abolishing the world qualifiers, in which amateur drivers from Europe and North America could participate, only Korea, China, Japan, and Taiwan were held.
A quota system was introduced for each country.
Kravetz, who became a professional through the European Baduk Federation entry competition in 2017,
finished second at the 2019 and 2020 European Championships and finally won the title this year by defeating Israel’s Ali Jabarin in the final.
Kravetz recorded 2 wins and 1 loss in the 2019 Samsung Fire & Marine Insurance World Group preliminaries, but failed to advance to the finals.
The 2023 Samsung Fire & Marine World Baduk Masters will hold a draw ceremony at the Samsung Fire & Marine Insurance Global Campus in Goyang-si, Gyeonggi-do on the 15th,
then begin the round of 32 tournament on the 16th.
The Samsung Fire & Marine Insurance Cup winner’s prize is 300 million won, and the runner-up prize is 100 million won.
The time limit for the finals is 5 1-minute countdowns for each 2 hours.
