Liu Huan, Chief Referee of Chinese Billiards Shanxi Qualifying Tournament: Xingpai Raises Shanxi Tournament Specifications
On April 22, 2012, the 2012 National Chinese Billiards Ranking Tournament Henan StationTournament, hosted by Beijing Xingwei Sporting Goods Co., Ltd. hosted by the China Billiards Association, came to an end today at Datong Party Club Xingpai Billiards Club. In the end, the post-90s guy from Inner Mongolia Chao Lumen defeated the famous general Wang Xiaoqian to win the championship.
Although local Shanxi players accounted for more than half of the number of applicants, as the competition progressed, the reporter found that only He Wenlong was the only local player in the top 8 list. As the host, this result was somewhat embarrassing.
“The billiards market in Shanxi has developed relatively late and there are few large-scale competitions. There are few opportunities for local players to learn from high-level players, so the overall level is not high.”, the chief referee of this competition, told reporters, ” In the past, Shanxi’s competitions were all regional. Small-scale competitions are different in each region, and even the rules of the game are different. Until 2007, the Shanxi Billiards Association was reorganized, and we made unified regulations on these details. Four events will be held every year, and the competition has slowly become formal.”
“But just playing games in the province always feels like a’closed door’. Our players need more opportunities to learn and communicate with first-line players across the country. Here we sincerely thank Xingpai for qualifying for the National Chinese Billiards Ranking Tournament. The tournament was selected in Shanxi. This should be the largest and most formal tournament held in Shanxi in recent years. The tournament has attracted many players from the surrounding areas to participate. The arrival of first-line players like Wang Xiaoqian, Xi Hongyu, Li Tiegang and others has helped the Shanxi billiards market. A very big boost.”
“You have also seen that during the game, many billiards enthusiasts watched these master games around the field. After the game, these first-line players are also willing to exchange ideas with everyone. At the end of the game, they will play in the club for a while and even practice. There are also fans using DV to record their practice videos, which is very helpful for their improvement.”
“I sincerely thank Xingpai for its strong support to Shanxi billiards. Holding the qualifying tournament here will allow our Shanxi players to compete in the national tournament without having to travel far. It also attracts more first-line players to come here to exchange views with everyone. With such a good beginning, I believe that under the promotion of Xingpai, the level of Shanxi billiards will become higher and higher, and the market will become more and more popular.”
