2019 Tokyo, Japan

4th Youth WOC 2019, Tokyo, Japan

The fourth Youth World Championship was held in Tokyo, October 2019. 
The 43rd WOC was planned to be held in Hong Kong. Twenty four youth players were originally registered. The political events in Hong Kong forced the WOC to move to Tokyo which reduced the number of youth participants to 17. Again there were no Youth semifinals, because Akihiro Takahashi won the WOC 2019.
