Nishiyama Tomoka, the only female player in the Shoreikai 3-Dan League at the moment, won two games in the 66th 3-Dan league on February 16, 2020. As a result, she is now ranked 3rd in the league. Depending on the result of the two remaining games for the league, which are scheduled to take place on March 7, there is a possibility that Nishiyama will become the first-time ever female professional player in shogi history.
