Changqi Cup (倡棋杯中国围棋职业锦标赛) is a major Chinese domestic Go tournament sponsored by the Ing family and its Go foundation. The tournament is smartly named: changqi(倡棋) literally means 'promoting Go'; it is also the Chinese pinyin of the given name of Ing Chang-Ki, the millionaire businessman who spent his lifetime promoting Go. Ing Chang-Ki passed away in 1997. In memory of him, his family created this tournament in 2004. Each year, the main tournament often starts on his birthday 23rd of October.
