On October 24, a warm and solemn apprenticeship ceremony was held in the Beijing Zhengyuan Mansion. The two business chess kings, Huanghe and Zhan Wei, formally worshipped at the chess sage Nie Weiping, becoming the second and third place after Jin Yong. A registered disciple.
Nie Weiping is full of peach and plum in the world of Go. Nie Weiping’s Go Dojo is constantly training professional or amateur players every year, but the only apprentices who really worship the old school of Nie are: Chang Hao, Zhou Heyang, Liu Jing, Wang Lei, Wang Yuhui, Liu Shizhen, Gu Li, Tan Xiao, Tang Li (female), Meng Zhaoyu (female) and Lu Jia (female) are 11 professional chess players.
聂卫平在围棋界充满了桃子和李子。聂卫平的《 Go Dojo》每年都在不断训练职业或业余球员，但真正崇拜聂老派的唯一徒弟是：张浩，周鹤阳，刘静，王磊，王玉辉，刘世振，顾丽，谭Xiao，Tang Li（女），Meng Zhaoyu（女）和Lu Jia（女）是11位职业棋手。
Niemen’s amateur chess player disciple is only Mr. Jin Yong, Nie Weiping’s year-long handover, and he is still distinguished from professional chess players in the form of "named disciples".
Since 1985, Nie Weiping’s winning streak in the Sino-Japanese Go arena has set off a craze for Go on the land of China. Huang He and Zhan Wei were obsessed with Go at that time. This game lasted more than 30 years. At that time, people who learned chess had very few teachers, most of them explored by themselves, and Huang He Zhanwei did the same. Therefore, Nie Weiping, who inspired them, was always regarded as the "master" in his mind. This was only their dream before, but on October 24, 2020, the dream came true.
In a Go event in Chengdu in August this year, as one of the organizers, Zhan Wei received Nie Weiping, and with some anxiety, he proposed to Mr. Nie the idea of apprenticeship. Nie Weiping recognized that the event was very impressive, so he put forward three requirements. If it can be met, he can consider accepting disciples. Unexpectedly, Zhan Wei happened to be satisfied, and so was his good friend Huang He, so he had the good deeds of apprenticeship this time.
Nie Weiping has three requirements for registered disciples:
First, it has made a great contribution to society. (The annual profits and taxes of the enterprises run by the two are tens of millions or even hundreds of millions).
Second, he often supports Go activities. (Both companies and individuals often sponsor various Go tournaments and activities)
Third, the level reaches a certain height. (Both have more than 5 amateur levels, have participated in the business chess king tournament and achieved good results)
On October 24, this apprenticeship ceremony was held in the Beijing Zhengyuan Mansion. Huang He and Zhan Wei bowed to Nie Weiping and offered tea respectively. After saluting, they officially changed their names to "Master". Afterwards, Nie Weiping encouraged the two to continue to work hard to develop their careers and promote Go, and played the commemorative guide chess with them respectively.
Nie Weiping also presented a specially customized Nie Shengjiu to the two disciples as a "meeting gift".
Huang He and Zhan Wei are both very excited. They expressed their views that Master can rest assured that they will do everything possible to continue to support Go activities and promote Go culture, and live up to the name of Niemen. At the ensuing apprenticeship banquet, the three masters and apprentices chatted, chatting and discussing things, and they were very happy.
