I am glad IND is given an SS. Dropping Swiss SS does little harm. I wonder if they will hold All-England, Denmark and France together. 3 weeks in a row?
CHN has 1/6 th (or thereabouts) of the world's population. Another SS for them is fine with me.
Looks like I may make a trip to INA next year.
This is only the beginning ...

I'm glad that HK is still there. Still a chance to get photos for BC

So if this is the line up for 2011-2013 maybe we could change the scoring system like Tennis has
Or the Premier Super Series we could have 5x21
PREMIER Super Series
And for regular Super Series we could have 3x21
REGULAR Super Series
Anyone care to give their opinion ?

I heard that in the BWF meeting there were some unhappiness about China getting:
1. China Open Premier SS
2. China Masters SS
3. Hong Kong Open SS (HK is technically within Chinese territory)
I am happy India got the SS! Great move by the BWF there... In the future, maybe the Premier SS should be there instead of Korea. If some people think Korea is rich... wait until the Indian corporations have the appetite for sponsoring badminton...
As for INA getting the Premier SS.... well I'm happy MAS did not bid higher...

KOREA with US$ 1.2 million
INA with US$ 600.000
China with US$ 350.000 ( very surprised!!!)
Denmark with US$ 350.000
England with US$ 350.000
USD 350,000? Maybe BWF should set a minimum bid of USD500,000.
And 5 is one too many.
China should be dropped as in Asia, we already have Korea & INA who are offering higher.

China have their own league. That's why they are only offering 350k as prize money.

We can now proudly say that BADMINTON is improved and improving......This news really pleased me so much. KOREA is really appreciative, they have been offering the highest cash prizes since the last 5-6 years that I remember. 1.2 Million is very noticeable amount, I wish all of those 5 premiers offered 1.2 millions. that would have been great, based on Super Series distribution criteria the champion would then receive 96,000$ and thats a great amount of money on top of regular super series. This is a great boost to Badminton. By the way CHINA should have at least directly offered 7figures amount, because they are the most advanced and developed country in terms of Badminton and economy. PG and TH should consider staying in Pro Badminton for another 5 years lol.
