    As this concerns my favourite female player, I'm very interested to know what happened. If you don't mind my asking, Thom_bad, how do you know WYH is injured? Did she receive treatment for the injury during or immediately after the match? Did she look injured while playing? I know she had strapping on her knee in the Denmark Open last week, but that certainly didn't stop her from playing very well.

    Thanks in advance for satisfying a busybody like me. ;)

    Historical data will show you that KT has never lost to a left-handed player, much less a leftie from China. :p

    Oh alright. Since you're so intent on giving me back my meal, I'm forced to accept. If Goofy actually beats LD, you'll have earned it based more on insanity and guts. :p

    Uncle OTB, cobalt is a generous soul. He felt guilty taking the meal I had bet with him and has decided to give it back immediately.

    Re. LD v CJ, I had a funny feeling the obvious wasn't going to happen. At this point in time, I think LYB has realized that the chances of CJ making it into the top 3 are slim to none. He's probably also resigned to the fact that CJ will be simply brushed away by LCW.

    So LYB has designed a whole new strategy, which is to arm LD and CJ to the hilt and do the big boy double whammy on LCW. No way LCW survives this, and he knows he needs to plant as many seeds of doubt in LCW's mind in as early a stage as possible. LYB is such a mastermind ;)

    ...in your dreams! :D

    Everyone spends their time second-guessing LYB. The fact is that he (and China) can get sideswiped at any stage at the OG. Karma happens.
