The First Female Mingren

There is a new championship in China. The championship is specially designed for female players. It is the 1st Female Mingren (Female Meijin).

Sixteen players will compete each other in a knock-out format tournament to be the first Female Mingren. This includes China's top female player such as Song Ronghui (5 dan), Tang Yi (2 dan), Li He (2 dan), and Lu Jia (2 dan)

Song Ronghui

Actually, back in 2003 there already a Female Mingren championship. However, it was discontinued in 2005. It seems that Jianqiao group is the new sponsor for this tournament. Perhaps that's way they recount the cycle.
