    Schedule-wise, this tournament is set up to fail. Being at the end of consecutive weeks of SS, SSP, and SS, most top tier players would be exhausted by then and wouldn't attend a lower tier tournament.

    In contrast, Japan Open was moved to a more favourable spot in the calendar, likely due to the clout of the sponsor.

    USD250K prize money for a GPG is not too bad. The IND Open SS is only USD275K and the OUE SIN Open SS is USD300K, not much better.

    So it is really sad that the sponsors put up the money and get killed by the schedule. This is not a good way to attract sponsors.

    On the other hand, I am also puzzled by the disinterest from players as there are lots of easy money to be pocketed by just showing up.

    This tournament has the least oversea participants. It sometimes look like a China close tournament.

    Atleast the other countries should have sent those players who won't participate in BAC.
    I think BWF needs a SS like rule for rank 20-50 in GP events.

    I'm pretty sure that's the last thing CBA wants. The prize money is not bad for a GPG , so why aren't the ROW players coming? Part of the reason could be the schedule as RedShuttle pointed out, those who participated in back-to-back SS tourneys would be too tired or felt disadvantaged playing here.

    What about those who skipped the SIN Open SS and those who are expected to exit in the early rounds of the SS, they are fresh enough to play here and can surely cope with the physical demands? I remember Chou TC is one who practically played non-stop in tournament after tournament last year when he had an amazing run.

    Glad to see Wei Nan here. A bit unhappy to see WZM and Qiao Bin meeting in R2, too early. The Thai MS turnout here is good despite missing Boonsak Ponsana and Tanongsak S.

    In WS, glad to have Michele Li who pulled out of the SIN Open choosing to play here as the top seed, her upper half draw looks favourable as the other fancied CHN WS players, namely, He BJ, Yao Xue and Shen Yayong are in the lower half bunched up in the same quadrant, too bad for them. Perhaps only Hui Xirui may pose Michele some resistance, I don't see anybody else able to stop her advancing to the final. The No.2 seed, Iris Wang , should not be underestimated but she is in the stronger lower half of the draw and her likely R2 16-yr-old opponent, Chen Yufei, is no pushover.

    A lot of Chinese players will participate here, maybe the players from other countries think the chance of winning here is lower?

    You are right, most ROW of participants will join Japan open instead of this due to the bad scheduling.

    China masters did ask feedback from BWF and the feedbacks were so many unfair treatments from past organizers, no pick ups foreign players on time, scheduling practices more favorable to chinese players and umpiring as well.... Now they are getting better and we are sending players... You cant blame bwf for scheduling as it is getting tougher even our Indonesian masters got pushed to December .

    Also if you get a BYE but lose in next round, you will get point as first round losers

    I think this tourney is very good for close-by countries to send young players, specially Japan and Korea. I think some Japan MS could get valuable points here

    Thanks for the info.

    That's worrisome. I would think that it would be a standard procedure to evaluate each event automatically. Why an organizer has to ask? Is BWF really that hands-off?

    No.. In the past, there were some funny things happened and BWF did fix such as practice schedules had to be approved by Referee... Also china organizers understood more and got better... They were someiscommunications in the past but they improve a lot...
