This competition is a special handicap-scored system, between Euro pro players and Chinese
Amteur players. The organizing committee based on the estimated

timre, after a random drawing, 5 players from Euro and 5 players from Chinese teams are
decided. Then based on the pair, certain courtesy points
are given to Chinese player for each game. Huang JiaHao(HKG) receives 6 courtesy pt.
against Joao Monteiro (POR) Zhao Ge (CHN Female) received 3 pts. -vs-
Samara Tseng Hai Hua (Macau) received 5 pts. -vs-

Tseng won Chen WeiXing 3-1 sets Tian won Kreanga 3-1 sets
Zhu Yi won Ovtcharov 3-2 sets, the deciding game is very close ,13:11
Hence, Chinese team won US$8,333 & Euro Team won US$833 ************* DAY 2 – Final Challenge Stage,
winner is Lin MingHe, After Day1, considering Euro teams waterloo
experience, committee decided to modify the system, so Euro team does not look so bad. They decide do random drawing after each match
to decide the new challenger. Also, the committee will adjust coutesy points
by game results, (For example, if you were given 3 courtesy
points, and you won Game 1, then you will get only 2 pts. to start game 2, etc. ,)
Here you go, Match 1, Zhang Guo Zhi (LP#1) -vs- Kreanga
(#1 Euro BH), Kreanga gave 3pt in game 1, then subsequently 2 pt, 1pt, finaly still
lost 1-3 sets. From then on, Zhang GuoZhi like a tiger let
out of the gate, with Super Smashing FH & “Chcken feet lifting “LP BH skill,
He created a winning spree. Match 2, With no courtesy points each game,
Zhang GuoZhi beat Samara 3-2 sets , (Samara, a pro player, is completely fooled
by the Chicken feet LP, have to see this) Match 3, Given courtesy pt of 2, Zhang GuoZhi
beat Wang Bo (Bora Veng, pro player for Turkish National Team before) Match 4, Given 2pt, Zhang GuoZhi’s FH was
so good, beat Chen WeiXing ,the chopper, 3-1sets Here Zhang GuoZhi achived 4wins (why do we
mention this, because there is a surprise bonus US$8,33 will be given to player of most
won match record) Match 5, We think Zhang is tired, he lost
to Li HsinYang(TPE) with 0-3 sets. Match 6, Now is the show of Ovtacharov (then
WR#1), he has given Li 2pts, then 1pts, then no points, eventually lost 1-3set to the 17
years old Li HsingYang, this is the biggest upset of the event, Li did super amazingly
clean shots & is a must-watch. Match 7, Li with his winning of Ovtcharov,
was only given 2pt, then 1 pt, Monteiro got the better of Li, 3-1sets to close ti. Match 8, Xu XiaoFeng (The butcher that is
also the president of China LP assiciation), given only 2pts., won Monteiro 3-2 sets,
this is a beaut of how Penhold LP twiddler was able to beat a young energetic Portugese
with great shakehand techniques. match 9.the final is between Xu XiaoFeng and
#1 Hainan Penholer,who is full of energy and waiting for his prey. Dont think there are any courtesy points given,
anyway, Lin MingHe accounted for Xu 3-1 sets and became the Final winner. Prize money report of singles player (for

  1. I think the results are far from what Organizing Committee imagined !! They were thinking have pro give some points to amateurs the game should looks more exciting, no landslide. They pay Ovtcharov and the team to fly from Europe and give them food and lodging, they spent almost a week time, but what they g0t as far as prize money is little to nothing. US$ 322 for Samara, Ovtcharov, Chen Weixing and Kreanga. Joao got a little bit more….. Most money went to Lin MingHe and Zhang GuoZhi.
