    Hey SGVBC'ers,

    From tournamentsoftware.com (http://www.tournamentsoftware.com/sport/players.aspx?id=15508), I see there is very few participants for this year's tournament. Is this an accurate list of registered players?

    Does anyone have any insider info on how this year turnout would be compare to last year?


    Thanks.

    Give it a little time, I believe SGVBC is still updating. I know at least 20 players that are playing but not registered on Tournament Software yet.

    The notables include:

    Chris Ngu (Two times consecutive Triple Crown Winner)
    Coach James Huang
    Coach Alex Liang
    Kong Kong

    The # 1 seed in Funky Doubles will probably be Chris Ngu and Coach James Huang. Alex is playing with Big Steve, probably seeded 2 or 3. King Kong and Wing will probably be the other seed.

    All this is assuming Howard Bach, Bob Malaythong, Eric Go, Halim Harayanto, Tony and company don't play.

    I spoke to Mona (Santoso) about playing and she said she'll be sitting out Summer Smash. I replied, "Why? To give others a chance to win? :p" Her reply was a facial expression...

    ...":p". :p:p:p :D

    OK, if she is that new news. I spoke to her two weeks ago and she said she was not playing.

    I told her, she couldn't resist. I was (maybe) right. :p

    Naw, I'm not playing. I just train/practice with the people that do play the tourneys. Panda's are not allowed to play. :p

    Sure, here are mine:

    Funky: Chris Ngu and James Huang (shouldn't be too tough)
    +70 MD: John Tang and Kelvin Ng (walk in the park)
    BMS: Howard Shu (money in the bank)
    BMD: Mona Santoso and Aaron Huynh aka "Crazy Man" :p (tough but best guess)
    BWD: Rulan Yeh and Qiu Ming Wu (should be close)
    BXD: Quoc Chau and Daisy Le (should be close)
    CMS: Mitsuo Okuma (should be pretty easy)
    CMD: John Tang and Kelvin Ng (on paper they should win)
    CWS: Molika Seng (walk in the park)
    CWD: Cecilia Wong and Qiu Ming Wu (tough but best guess)
    CXD: Jack Soong and Mui Liu (tough but best guess)
    DMS: Don't know
    DMD: Sergio Godoy and Paul Phongasavithas (if they play relaxed) :p
    DWS: Don't know
    DWD: Don't Know
    DXD: David Yao and Jane Hsieh (shouldn't be too hard)

    I feel DMS = wide open. I don't know most of the players. Originally I was going to pick Joe or Hung but I believe they got bumped up to "C".

    Yeah, I didn't think that was fair either. I spoke to John and he said, "I'm an old man and Kelvin doesn't attack..." And given the 21-point, I think it's "fair" for them to play together. At least sort of. :p

    There's a lot of new blood and young guns in "D" and "C". I haven't been keeping up.

    Old man with many tricks and young man with just as many tricks, sheesh. They may not have strong smashes but it will be like playing against a brick wall against those two.
