Notes from Manila 2013

Author: Craig Armitt This may be the first tournament in which there was almost more drama before we arrived then during the actual weekend. It all started in the week leading up to the event with everyone gradually becoming aware of Typhoon Haiyan. Then on Friday morning Craig was sat at Olly’s gaff when the […]

Silly Season at Ky Hoa

The officials at Ky Hoa certainly were in the Halloween spirit this weekend providing us with a particularly gruesome specimen of a referee, a withered wrinkled bag of leather filled with bones, a horrifying voice shredded by 50 years of smoking and shouting at other Vietnamese men and a chilling interpretation of the game of […]

Phu Quoc 2013

By Anthony Roberti The Saigon Raiders headed to Phu Quoc Island’s Mango Bay Resort in hopes of winning the Mango Bay Cup which eluded them last season.  The Raiders were fresh as daisies and sober as judges on the morning of the tournament (a rare sight considering the painful hangovers of Cambodia, KL, Manila, and […]
