Korea Open GP 2010
This year, There will be another Korea Open GP US$ 50000 , starts 23-28 Nov ( same time with Kaoshiung Challenge)
According to BWF's official, when a country has SS event, the next GP should be GOLD GP ( minimum US$ 120 K) like Indonesia and Malaysia and I am wondering why Korea has 50 K only..

Not exactly unusual, though. After all, Singapore has only an International Series in addition to its Super Series and Japan has only an Int'l Challenge, as did Indonesia and Korea before this year and Malaysia before 2009. The European SS hosts, and Hong Kong, don't have any other international tournaments. Even if the BWF would like that to be the norm, it appears only 3 of the 11 nations - Malaysia, Indonesia, and China - have a GP Gold or higher in addition to a SS.

The Korea Open GP used to be the Korea International Challenge for a few years. Let's see if INA and the clubs want to send their players to this tourney.
There will also be a new Kaohsiung International Challenge event to be held in the same week as Korea Open GP this year. I feel that INA can send their Pratama players (esp MD, WD, and XD) to these regional IC and GP events to boost their rankings.

I just checked the BWF Statutes. Apparently Korea Open GP is still within the regulatory framework Part III, section 1B, appendix 10. Essentially: a nation with a SS or PS [Premier Series], can have one more tournament in level 3... so, either 1 additional Gold GP or 1 GP. Ok. Korea GP it is then...

Does that mean that Japan is outside the framework, having only a SS and the Osaka IC? If these 'rules' mention PS, then possibly they are only to take effect from next year.
Korea's International Challenge had young contingents from Indonesia in '07, from Japan in '07 and '08 and from Thailand in '08 and '09. The last 3 years, they've had all of their top players competing for the US$15,000 so it's little wonder other teams didn't bother. This year, again, they are billing it internally as a combination GP tournament and their national championships so you might end up with something like the India Open, where the home team is huge (including high school players) and the visitors limited.

After some thought, considering that the top guns in Korea will definitely be joining the tourney and right after the Asian Games, it's probably best for Team INA's main squad to avoid this tourney :P The independent players will also not join given the low pts and prize-money. The Kaohsiung IC will be a better one for our INA youngsters to win some titles.
