Two EGF professionals were invited by Mr. Ge Yuhong to play the China City League C held from 11th to 21st of May 2015 in Qinghuandao, China.
Qinghuandao is a city next to sea in the east part of China. Two EGF professionals were me and Ali Jabarin. Ali was already in Beijing for one week, training in Mr. Ge's Go academy. I came directly from Globis Cup, Tokyo.
We were accommodated in a 5 star hotel with a beautiful view on the sea. This was also the playing place for C league, B league and women B league.
All this events are held every year like this. Not like the Chinese A league. All this tournaments are team tournaments, me and Ali we played on 4th boards in two different teams. Next year maybe an EGF pro team will apply for possible participation.
We played 7 games, one a day with the time allowance of 145 minutes basic time + 5x60s byo-yomi. Some games last 7-8 hours. I managed to win 2 games and Ali won 1 game (I won game between us by 0,25 stones=0,5 points)
