off topic: ..the scoring system will not change. What OTB meant was: 1. The Super Series tourneys is about to undergo a money-face-lift in the form of the new Premier Super Series tourneys (tourneys having at least $500k in prize money, the first one is the Korea Open SS which will offer more than $One Million Dollar in prize money). 2. Then another factor is, starting next May until May of 2012, the 2012 Olympic Games Qualification period begins..LD could participate in more tourneys simply so he can at least qualify..
