China 07-05 Chen Yaoye becomes the world's youngest 9-dan


By taking second place in this June's Asia Cup, Chen Yaoye at 17 years old has become the world's youngest 9-dan. Unlike Japan's ranking system, in which seniority and performance in domestic tournaments determines individual ranking, both China and Korea have in recent years switched to a system that places greatest weight on performance in major international competition. Even though Chen lost in the finals to Korea's Lee SeDol, his results combined with last year's performance against Gu Li in the LG Cup secured his immediate promotion from 5 to 9-dan.
