Testimonials 

 

Alan Deng

The best part of Taiwanese competitions are that the participants understands the hardship of organising a competition.

 

Chu Kim Huey

Can't predict who and how strong my opponents are. Unlike in Malaysia we know pretty much each others level of play.

 

Tan Cheng Keat

There's a higher division than the one we played. Those who participate are the level of Malaysian National players.

 

Oscar Kwan

Was invited by Terry who told me I'm here just to enjoy the game, who knew it was a tough one. But still, I never lost to anyone. 

 

Terry Leung
I saw a guy who I played in Hong Kong before. He plays so much better here in Taiwan.
