    2011 Hong Kong Open SS: Semi-Finals Saturday 19-November

    Some South East Asian players are participating in the SEA Games this week, and therefore they won't be here in Hong Kong.

    Congratulations to those who have made it to the Semi-Finals.

    The matches start at 1.00pm HK time. Isn't 9am too late or they only start broadcasting from 9.00am.

    This is true. So to save waking up at 5am we are delaying our stream to start at 9am

    so 3 all Chinese affairs, how many walkovers/'injuries' do we reckon? Will also be interesting to see how Lin Dan will play against LCW (if he decides to turn up at all), it's weird seeing those two meet in a semi final.

    Let's see if TJM/ZN concedes a WO or just play play against their own countryman. But I doubt KOR will resort to a stage show.

    I believe that it is staged by LYB. At the Semi-Finals, I believe LD will defeat LCW, and then later CL will lose to CJ.

    On Sunday, at the Finals, LD will lose to CJ. Let's wait and see. ;););)

    Don't know about the odds offered by different betting agencies.

    But at our BC PAW Games, it is;
    * 9 points for LCW
    * 11 points for LD

    In other words, it is;
    * 55% for LCW
    * 45% for LD
    .

    I would think so. :D:D:D

    And if CL is to give a walkover to CJ, I think the Hong Kong crowd would do some booing and demand money back.

    I hope I have not incited some violence to be caused (with what I have posted here). :p:p:p

    I agree with ya prediction on CJ-CL, and CL beat LD if LD goes through, except LD-LCW can go either way, and I say LCW will win this time, a close one.
