    the gym will be closed to open gym as we have reserved the whole gym for the tournament.

    the tournament is open to watch. in fact, spectators are very welcomed. feel free to come by and say Hi!

    Lting, can you post the total count of participants? I think we are as big as the largest in the area given that bacbc is only a one day event.

    Kranti, the draw I already posted in a previous post.

    If anyone want to come say hi and for a chat, or even better to support my team, look for a tall skinny guy with glasses and "K Han" on his back.

    I went to see the tournament. Oracle finally won! This time, they got the pairing right.

    Cisco is really good.

    thank you everybody who came and play and support all the 15 different teams. everyone agrees that the event was a total success and hats off to the 15 team representatives who made it possible.

    personally, i played one of the best match of my life. my partner and I played mixed doubles against the defending champion pair who are at least one if not 2 grades above us. we came into the match knowing that we are the underdog and got nothing to lose. we lifted our game and surprised ourselves and each other. i made shots that i didn't even know i can do. even after we were down 14-19 in the 3rd game, we came back and won 23-21 / 17-21 / 22-20. i don't think i will ever forget the match.

    That makes me think of the Jing Du/Yang Yu vs Kyung Won Lee/Jung Eun Ha match last week.

    EBay lost to Oracle in the final 1:3. Cisco lost to Oracle in the semifinal 1:4 (they started the fifth game before other games were finished). Cisco beat Intel to win the third-place.

    When Cisco played against Oracle, Cisco was stronger in the Mixed double, and Oracle was better in one of the men's doubles. The other three matches were really close. Oracle was fortunate enough to win the three matches, especially on women's double. Cisco won the first set and led the second set by 12:4, 17:6 and 20:15, but eventually lost to Oracle.

    I dont know what shuttles they used during the semifinal and finals. The shuttles seem to be a little bit too fast: players complained and a lot of flick serves went out of bound.

    Wow, you beat the EBay mixed doubles?! That is a great achievement. I went there late and missed this one. I did see you played in the final of B Group.

    Oracle beat EBay's mixed double because Oracle's female player was much better than EBay's female player. From what I saw yesterday, your partner was ok but not particular strong. That means you must have played a heck of game. Congratulations! If you have a video, it will be nice for us to watch. The male player of EBay's mixed double is really really good. I heard that he was a member of Vietnam's national team.

    When a team came back from 15:20 to win the next 11 points IN A ROW, that's a lot more than fortune isn't it? Salute to the Oracle WD.
