    very good players.

    i don't know their name, but i probably won't get more than 5 points if they play serious..
    The first one from right is Dzung Dang and the other is Luc Nguyen. Both are ex Vietnam National Players. Indeed very good players..A++.

    Unfortunately no. We don't have enough players to form a team. It should be lots of fun with that many teams and mix of players. Not sure if you guys can do all that in a day though. kwun, you should give Ebay and Oracle a run for that gold metal

    BTW, maybe you can negotiate to have a Team BadmintonCentral for those who aren't part of any of these companies

    we will see about Oracle.

    ebay is untouchable. while most companies are struggling to find enough players, they have so many good players i heard they had an internal trial and ended up with all A/B level players in the team.

    technically i just need to hire each person as a contractor for a day, fire them, and then they will be qualified, i will give that a thought.

    That is definitely an idea. But then, I probably still don't get to play because there are so many good players around here that would love to get hire and fire by kwun. But Team BadmintonCentral will rock for sure

    the teams have been finalized.

    the tournament is a typical round robin group match -> elimination format. there are total 14 companies organized into 4 groups:

    Group 1:

    Ebay (1)
    Genentech
    Roche
    Advantech

    Group 2:

    Google (4)
    VMware
    Cisco
    3PAR

    Group 3

    Intel (3)
    Yahoo
    City of San Francisco

    Group 4

    Oracle (2)
    Lam Research
    Nvidia

    the top 2 finisher in each group advances to the elimination round.

    Default ^^A bit of relief..^^

    ..phew, aren't you glad your team is not in the same group as the defending champs??..Btw, what is your team's target of finish?? Is it just to make it to the next round??..So, does it mean after the group play, it'll be Group 1 and Group 4 facing off?? and Group 2 and Group 3 will face off against each other??..

    Good luck, kwun, and most importantly have lots and tons of fun!!! Take lots of pictures, too!!

    If someone can take pictures or even video tape the matches and put on youtube, that will be wonderful.
