    Nov 10 in Guangzhou? Maybe? No confirmation yet? No Live Telecast or Streaming, OMG,OMG,OMG?
    Yes,as an exhibition match it's better to invite the 4 best players - best in certain time, in certain way, based on certain criteria such as popularity,contribution,representation and respect, but among the four, Lin Dan is undoubtedly Best of the Best - rather than the top 4 players because the purpose is not to determine who is The Best as the tournaments and championships are already doing that, but for a different reason(s)[ask the organizer and sponsor].

    My take is that this exhibition match will be taken seriously by all the 4 players,not so much because of the attractive prize money which is certainly one of the considerations, but:
    1) Taufik The-Once-Fearsome-One (Hidayat),playing under no pressure - not representing his country nor ranking points involved - and with nothing to lose and a guaranteed prize money of at least 200K(250K?) RMB, might just exhibit the old Taufik that he was once famous for whilst enjoying the match(es);
    2) Peter The Great (Gade) still has what it takes,age has not diminished him much, and he's repeatedly said the two players he wanted to beat most are (no prize for getting this one right) Super Dan and Datuk Lee;
    3) Lee The Mighty (Chong Wei), well, he will grab at every opportunity to prove he can be the best by overcoming Lin Dan who made him play second fiddle for so long, need I say more; and
    4) The Greatest Of All, Lin Dan,will certainly not want to lose face on home soil in front of his countrypeople(using a non-sexist term);besides,he got to give face to his coach Li YB who must have seek Lin Dan's nod to participate before going ahead with organizing it, and, having agreed to play, he is obliged to make it a success by satisfying the organizer,the sponsor,the supporters and fans what they came to see and not let somebody else steal the limelight from him - and in the process win big by affirming he is still the True King of Badminton (and not least the big prize money to buy more presents for his beloved wife,parents and in-laws ).

    The spectators are in for a treat - they get to see all the dream matches, including the likely Dream Final: Lin Dan vs Lee Chong Wei !!!

    As an afterthought, whoever loses has a ready excuse 'It's just an exhibition match,hope everybody enjoys it' - the players pocket the money and the audience is none the wiser for it.

    if it happens, its just exhibition. no one is going to be serious. it's all about being there just collecting the mulla.

    Sorry, I do not see like that.. IMHO, It seems LYB just want to bring back good image for CHN team. Not for badminton itself. Like we know, nowadays China players intensively make walkover/retired unnecessary (especially LD) if china players fighting each other, just want to save rank their players to qualification OG 2012..

    I beg to differ. With so much money involved and personal honour and glory, do you think they won't mind losing to each other - individually,they might be thinking "let the others take it easy,I'm going to play and win the title and the money" (1mil RMB for 1st,500k for 2nd,250k for 3/4th,mind you quite a big gap). Besides,do you believe the crowd just want to go there and see them 'play,play'? Then,why not just conduct an autograph-signing session will do and followed by the respective players each demonstrating a particular technique they are famous for. I'm sure their respective fans would want to see their idol emerge champion.

    Just received confirmation from Peter Gade that he is in China and will be playing tomorrow in the exhibition. I hope that they can stream the games via Youtube just like BWF matches.

    Peter already announced it on his Facebook page.

    I doubt there will be live streaming. It's a private exhibition event, new facility but probably not catered to filming. Happy to be proved wrong if that so happens.

    Tomorrow is 11/11/11 !!! Trust the Chinese to find a most auspicious date. Wonder how they will dress up the venue with those numbers. ( No wonder my daughter s college could only book an unheard of venue for its president to meet the parents and alumni tomorrow. All venues fully booked for wedding dinners! Unbelievable Chinese. Guess Hong Kong would be the same.)

    Actually Gade's team mates like Joachim and Hans Vittinghaus did not know that Gade will participate ...what I am saying it sounds like hush hush...When I heard about it from Taufik..I was wondering as well and many of badminton fans thought it was just a rumour...even I have asked Badzine to check with Gade if they do not believe it....

    What I mean by Positive outlook here is INCOME that being badminton player can earn big money as well....

    FYI, SF starts at 2pm beijing time and finals scheduled at 7 40pm later on..
    I think draw mite be done using the world ranking so possible semifinal round could be LCW vs Gade, LD vs Taufik

    Edit: just realised, in keeping with multiples of 11, my post with the live stream link is coincidentally the 99th post on the thread!!

    Only 3 matches? No playoffs for 3/4 places?
