No Taiwanese? It can't be an All-Star Asian force without yang chin sun, wu chia ching, kuo po cheng, etc.

They hate or doesn't want to play 10 ball, specially Yang, who will lose his 9-ball break advantage.

Don't forget about Jung-Lin Chang & Pin-Yi Ko! I believe they'll be the next dominant superstars from Taiwan.

***Chang has won the last 3 tour stops on the Guinness 9 Ball tour and 5 of the last 8! How strong is that!

Wu's recent win in Cebu (or was it puerto princesa? i get confused) suggests that the taiwanese are starting to warm up to 10ball as well......

wu's already got titles in 8-,9-, and 10-ball. what's next for this WUnderkind?

I think they are very picky about the sactioning body. This one is a BCA sponsored event, so I'm not sure why they are not sending players. They have a very active tour in Taiwan, so it might be scheduling conflict.

Now that is a match I would love to see. No disrespect intended I just enjoy watching 14.1 and would like to see more of the Asian and fillipino players compete in this game. Maybe they do as I never see pool on TV anymore.:thumbup:

Now that would be something to watch out for! the Taiwanese are known for their methodical style of play that translates well to 14.1.

first, 8ball, then 9- and 10-ball.....Could world domination be far behind???

The unknown taiwanese player Min-Wai Chin has ever won the 2nd in 2000 U.S. Open 14.1 Straight-Pool Championship and their top woman player Shin-Mei Liu was the champion of the 1993 WPBA US Open 14.1 Championship. I won't be surprised if they also play 14-1 very well.
