    Lius Pongoh used to be one of Indonesia's finest MS player known as "bola karet" because he's not tall but he's able to return almost every shot from his opponents, now he's one of the manager in Pelatnas.

    I remembered that was one match where Liem Swie King was leading 14-0 against Lius Ponggoh but Lius managed to fight every single point until he beat Liem Swie King 15-14, miracle! Comparabe to LCW beat Lin Dan with in MO06.:D

    Met Koh Lius Pongoh at the China Open 2007...a nice guy and definitely a great asset to PBSI at the moment. It's a pity we can't spend more time together at the HKG Open 2007.
