Ok, since deleted posts have made the original topic unreadable (the last three pages don't exist), I've created a new topic for members to introduce themselves. :wink:
I wrote the piece below on October 28th, the second day of the PDC Asia, North and East region qualifier. Since then, I have not been able to find video of the event on Youtube. I can find video of the qualifier held here last year in Taipei, and I can find videos of many other PDC qualifiers, but unsurprisingly I cannot find this year's Taipei qualifier on Youtube. This may have something to do with the level of competition and quality, or rather, lack of quality play.

The Great Die Off and the PDC qualifier in Taipei. Oct. 28, 2017

40 players competed at the PDC Asia qualifier, North and East Region (South Korea, Mongolia, Macau, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyztan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan) in Taipei, Taiwan, last night. I was shocked, but not too surprised at the small number of players who showed up. I took a look at the tourney bracket, and only a few names were not written in Chinese. I didn't see anybody who looked like Borat, so I guess the turnout from the former Soviet republics may have been non-existent. There were a couple guys from Mongolia, some South Koreans, a contingent from Hong Kong and Macau, and of course local Taiwan players. Many top Hong Kong shooters failed to attend. Royden Lam surprisingly didn't come. The top 16 will fight it out today for a place at Allie Pally this December. I will not go watch today. It's just not worth my time.

There is a core group of steel tip shooters here in Taiwan, good players, getting up in age who no longer play. Most of them are in their late 50s and early 60s. They understand etiquette, counting, and chalking. These are guys who played during the peak of steel darts in Taiwan, the 80s and early 90s. Many played through the 90s, and a few of them play soft tip even now. Several of them played on the Pacific Cup teams of the 80s that played against Paul Lim and his teams. I am of the same generation. We are the dinosaurs of darts.
