The 2st Five Rams Cup

 This was the second 5 Rams Cup tournament. It was held at the end of 1981, or in same year where the first tournament was held. It lasted till January. Only one game was played each day and the three players played a full round robin.Again, only 3 players in the world were eligible for competition, namely Yang Guanlin, Li Yiting, Hu Ronghua and Liu Dahua.
GM Liu won the first ever tournament. The other two "older" champions decided to try their best to win their first ever tournament. Hu Ronghua finally won.
Because the games are of highest level of play, I dare not annotate the moves for fear of misleading the reader with my limited skills.
