    till now ,no information can be found about the draw even on the official website. what's worng? :confused: :confused:

    and, who are coming to dinner? some media says even some of the top players ( like XXF, LD, YW.ZJW etc) are not so willing to participate this game as 1, no IBF points, 2, too close to Asia Game. 3, too tired

    i do not want to see players compete to lose as earlier as possible :eek: so that they can have more time to prepare for Doha. all do not have the desire to win. :( only heard that BCL is determined to win the title after defeated by CH.:)

    will taufik be there? any other non-chinese players? :confused:

    hope it will not become a boring event, if not a mess. (hope i am wrong)

    BTW, no "why --- lost" needed this time otherwise the forum will be thronged by this kind of thread as I am afraid most top players will lose easily.

    oh if Taufik is going there, he is determined to win I bet.
    so the MS final will be between Taufik and BCL. HA!

    李永波最后表示,接下来参加亚运会的队员将不参加马上开始的世界杯比赛,而是回到北京,专心备战亚运会。他说:“虽然亚运会的关注程度比不上奥运会,总局也没有给我们下具体的任务,但我们会全力以赴,全面超过上届!”

    About the only thing the winners get is the title of 'World Cup Champion' which tends to mislead people into thinking that they are world champions. I don't know why they bother with this invitational event. If the proceeds are going to some charity, that's a different thing and it might even be fun, but to hold an event like this and give no IBF points? I don't see why.
