Welcome to the seasons final Premier Mandatory event here in Beijing. Cirsteas incredible form continued as she claimed the title in Tokyo last week. She will hope to make it 5 finals in a row this week. With just 4 events left before the YEC this is a huge chance for players to solidify or challenge for Top 8 positions. Li is now less than 400 points behind Schnyder, she could steal the #1 spot with a run to the final here.
