  1. Ding remains the top Chinese player, very seasoned and enjoys top level coaching. So will play not only against a person but against a machine with seconds looking for minutest details to obtain any type of advantage. In their recent matchup Ding won against So in an exhibition in China. May the best man win; I pray it will be WS. Mabuhay.
