Nice article. I've been a long already wondering how much they earn there. I would actually have thought they, and especially Ma Long, earns more than that in the super league. It's of course a lot of money anyway compared to price money in the World Tours but compared to other sports that's not so much.

Does anyone know if the chinese players keep all of the price money they earn in the competitions or does something of it go to the chinese tt federation?
Although the quality of Chinese vs Chinese matches is a lot higher, sometimes I feel watching European vs European a little more entertaining due to the longer lasting rallies ... Does anybody agree with me or am I alone on this one ?
Top level Chinese national players playing each other now is just serve and 3rd ball attack really, not so many crowd sweeping loop to loop rallies. I dunno it's just a thought. :D
