    Only the top 16 ms players will be invited to the China master unless someone withdraw. So I think XIA will not compete the match.It's so regretful for XIA.

    So, this is like the Copenhagen Master, which is an invitational tournament?
    What about the other disciplines? Only 8 places for WS, MD, WD, and XD?

    Is it a knockout format or a round-robin group format? It will be interesting to see a round-robin tournament with 4 players in a group. This will make it a very competitive tournament from the group stage to the final stage.

    My preference:
    MS: 3 group matches with the winners(and perhaps runners-up) qualifying for the quarter-final. Knockout format from quarter-final to final. Maximum games = 6 games for winner --> equivalent to most tournaments
    WS-XD: 3 group matches with the winners qualifying for the semi-final. Winners and runners-up qualify for the semi-final. Knockout format for semi-final and final. Maximum games = 5 games for winner, which is again equivalent to most tournaments.

    the China master is not fully like the Copenhagen Master, it is not an invitational tournament, the players entry is according to the world ranking.
    And the biggest difference is that the China master is 6 start tournament, the players can get many world ranking records.
