    This is a tremendous list of elite players and Panda is sad to see them retire. :(

    Wish them the best of luck in their future endeavors. :)

    So it was true about XXF........ I didn't want to believe it at all. But I'm glad not to see PG on there.

    yeah, i believe he had health problems and had surgery done awhile ago. i'm sure other BCF members can give more specific comments about his retirement.

    hahaha, clearly she isn't... i thought it was pretty clear i was only referring to the chinese players... :p

    maybe xxf wants to be a wife? hahhaha
    and yes, i'm glad PG isn't there
    hopefully he'll play long enough for the next olympics, but that is very unlikely

    Yea, i remember gillian commenting about something to that effect during one of his matches
    not entirely sure though

    just the other week I was wondering whatever happened to Chen Yu. He got on the world level the same time Chen Jin did and won some good matches back then.
    Was he forced into retiring because of the younger generation?

    I still liked Jens E. and Martin L.H. as a pairing, but their retiring isn't that shocking
