    It's hard to choose just 2. My preferences would be Thomas/Uber Cup(always on top every year it is played, more than Olympic), for 2014 next would be World Junior Championship

    It is a hard choice between WJC and Australian SS(because it is the first SS in Australia and prize money is mouth-watering) and also SS final(because it would be the first in Dubai)

    On normal year, since SS are yearly affair, not that attractive to me.

    I prefer to watch Junior event because it is refreshing to see young players. Some more WJC has team event too. I like team event than individual.

    Asian Games would be high on my list too.

    Maybe the organisers were disappointed with their failed WC bid and are taking time to setup the Macau Open. I suspect it's heavily dependent on government funding.

    World Championships tops the Badzine poll followed by the oldest badminton tournament, All England. Another BWF event Thomas-Uber Cups manage #4 position behind INA Open SS Premier, pretty surprising.

    INA Open SS Premier is ranked #3

    .
    I think it's because most Badzine voters are from Indonesia. :):):)

    IMHO, it should be. Why? It's because Indonesians are most excited about Badminton (more than any followers of Badminton from any other countries).

    There will be Macau Open...but not part of GPG circuit...Korea GPG opted notnto be part of it too..because of stricter requirements...you just can't choose any stadiums to host GPG, you have to make sure all elements required by BWF

    It's exactly what I've said:
    Indonesian spectators/players/organisers are most excited about Badminton than other people from other countries.

    We can see more excitement in all tournaments held in Indonesia (even at lower level tournaments).

    Two GP Gold tourneys have been cancelled, so we have 9 GP Golds in this year.

    According to BWF Calendar update, two regular GP Gold tournaments, Korea Open is downgraded into GP level - http://www.bwfbadminton.org/tournamentcalendar_event.aspx?id=18352 while Macau Open is cancelled - http://www.bwfbadminton.org/tournamentcalendar_event.aspx?id=20895
