Chinese Championship 2021
Stunning Last Round Action!
Few Chinese championships have witnessed the suspense and uncertainty as in today’s final round of the Chinese Championship! Tournament leader, Yu Yangyi unexpectedly went down in flames to Women’s World Champion Ju Wenjun — this was her only win of the tournament (!) — while Wei Yi won handily his game against Xu Zhihang!
This set the stage for Li Di to make it a triple tie for first place when he defeated Zhao. Congrats to all. The tie break favoured Yu Yangyi, making this the second time in a row for him to take the Chinese Championship trophy.
