    Wow, is hard to resist attending the tournament this year with so many star players, any motel around OCBC that someone knows about? Thanks in advance!

    To Mr. Han, the other Mr. Han, there are a few motels near OCBC/Anaheim/Orange but not within walking distance (unless you want to walk for more than 1/2 hr each way). There is one suite/hotel nearby, just across from the Pond, within 1/2 hr walk, 15 minutes if you jog to OCBC : Ayres Suites. That's the closest one i can recall.

    Haha yes I do have a tough match, play the Vietnamese guy in qualification. On the plus side Im happy for the expirence of playing a non Pan Am player though so it will be fun.

    This one is very close to OCBC, within 5 minutes walk and I think quite a few players stayed there because it's convenient. Check it out

    On paper, semifinal should be no prob for TH. His major stumbling block none but the two CHN players. Barring any upset, he will meet BCL & CJ at semifinal and final respectively.

    akh...just remember that Extended Stay America hotel on Katella; drove by there a lot but always seems to miss it because it's located so far back from the main street it's almost unnoticeable..
    Other than those 2 accommodation places, i don't know of any motel within walking distance to OCBC..

    He was N° 2 seed, but he isn't on the draw ....
    Don't know the reason of his withdraw, I think he could use some rankingpoints ...

    Confirmed Chen Jin is not here.....the reason is:
    he is afraid of playing against Taufik.......


    noo...


    the reason is he has a back injury (yes, you guys will smile at the reactived back injury>>limsy)..
