    According to my calendar, Hong Kong Open was supposed to have taken place last weekend... But I've heard nothing about it. Was it cancelled?

    According to rumours circulating, there was some problem with the sponsorship.

    Then when that was sorted out, it was too late to confirm the booking at the venue which had by then been booked by another event.

    Dunno why an alternative venue could not have been arranged.....perhaps everything was too late by then.

    So the whole event was cancelled. :(
