On the afternoon of April 27th, the game officially started. The top 32 was decided on the same day. The local players in Anhui and the players from other provinces were mixed. Local seeded player Jiang Zhenyu encountered Tianjin seeded player Shi Hanqing in the first round, losing 2-5. Well-known golfer Xu Ran from Beijing and Anhui local powerful player Zhang Jianguo also met in the first round and staged a wonderful duel ahead of schedule. Xu Ran led 3-0 in the first three games, and the situation was very good. In the fourth game, Xu Ran defeated the black eight due to a mistake and Zhang Jianguo pulled it back 1-3. Perhaps because the opponent’s mistakes gave him a chance, Zhang Jianguo in the following games played 4 consecutive rounds, defending the honor of the local players 5-3.
When interviewing Xu Ran after the game, the reporter learned that Anhui Station was already the third station that Xu Ran played. Neither of the first two stations were shortlisted. It was the first time he came to Anhui and the loss in the first round was something he did not expect. Tiredness is the primary cause. After this stop, he will also go to Henan to participate in the qualifying competition on May 4. I hope Xu Ran can gain something in the final battle, and I also wish all the players on the journey a safe journey.
