Huang Longshi, a Chinese guoshou of the 17th century, is widely regarded as one of the most accomplished go players in history. This tournament is named after him because it is held at Jiangyan, a small town in Jiansu province of China, known as Huang's hometown. The tournament was first introduced in 2011 as an international women's team tournament. In 2012 it became a win-and-continue team tournament for the three major Go-playing countries - China, Japan and Korea - apparently to replace the defunct Jeongganjang Cup.
