Chinese Qisheng

When it started in 2013, the full name of this tournament was Luoyang Longmen Cup Chinese Qisheng tournament (洛阳龙门杯中国棋圣战). Luoyang is a city in central China's Henan province. Longmen is apparently a reference to the city's local World Heritage Site Longmen Grottoes, the home of thousands of Budda statues. Qisheng is the Chinese equivalence of 'Kisei' meaning 'Go sage'. The tournament came to a stop after two years, but re-emerged as Baiyunshan Cup (白云山杯), a reference to the local tourist site White Cloud Mountain National Forest Park.
