‘Over 90%’ win rate Shin Jin-seo, one win left to win the Maxim Coffee Cup
Jinseo Shin, 9th Dan, the ‘absolute strongman’, left one win to the top of the Maxim Coffee Cup.
Shin Jin-seo lost to Lee Won-young, 9th dan, in 133 moves in the 24th Maxim Coffee Cup finals, 3rd station, 1st station, held at Korea Kiwon Baduk TV Studio in Seoul on the 3rd. If Shin Jin-seo adds 1 win, he will take the trophy.
Shin Jin-seo, who recorded 17 consecutive victories with the victory that day, rose further to 92.1% this year. Shin Jin-seo has not lost since winning against 9th-dan Park Jung-hwan in the final of the KBS Baduk King in February. He also has a 35-3 record (92.1% win rate) this year and is poised to break the 88.37% win rate he set in 2020.
Shin Jin-seo took the lead from the beginning in the first round of the finals, and Lee Won-young, who was pressed for time, added to his set-up and won a complete victory.
Shin Jin-seo said in an interview after the game, “I was not good at judgment as I first saw it in the beginning, but I paid a lot of attention because it was baduk that ended with one mistake.” In addition, “The 2nd station moved to the Konjiam Resort in Gwangju, Gyeonggi-do, and I remember losing the 2nd national final of the 20th competition, which I first won, while leaving Seoul. I will try to win this time by forgetting that memory and managing my condition well.” 먹튀검증
