Here are the top 10 seeds.

Quadri Aruna 2850 / 2809  
Zhen Wang 2821 / 2821  
Se Hyuk Joo 2777 / 2777  
Junhan Wu 2770 / 2777  
Yingchao Hou 2760 / 2760  
Satoshi Aida 2760 / 2760  
Wenzhang Tao 2744 / 2734  
Bob Chen 2736 / 2766  
Jiang Niu 2650 / 2650  
Xiang Jing Zhang2646 / 2646

Pretty strong field. Does anyone have any updates from the tournament?

I know Alameda's Bryant Lin won the U2500 yesterday, but I know little about any of the other events.

Results are now up: https://www.omnipong.com/T-tourney.asp?t=103&r=778

Looks like Joo won the all chopper final.

Nice job getting the results up quickly Craig!

Any video somewhere?

Last year (2016) LA Open was sponsored by Butterfly, it had video on Butterflyonline.
This year it is sponsored by JOOLA, don't know where is the video.

Based on scores only, looks like there were two great quarterfinal matches: Tao Wenzhang vs Eugene Wang and Junhun Wu vs Hou Yingchao.

Well, lately the LA Open and US Open certainly are showing us the accuracy of the statement I hear many coaches authoritatively deliver over and over again,"Pips are a shortcut that will help you in the beginning, but later they will be a handicap, and you will not be able to achieve a high level."

Perhaps that should be modified to "Pips are a shortcut that will help you in the beginning, but later they will be a handicap, and you will not be able to achieve a high level - unless you are insanely athletic."

I'll see that statement and raise you, heavyspin.  "Short pips without sponge are a shortcut that will definitely help you in the beginning (you can learn to drive and chop), but later they will be a handicap (can't argue with that; wonder whyDead) and you won't be able to achieve a level much above 2300."

In addition, in order to achieve a level much above 2300 using short pips no sponge against modern thermonuclear weapons, not only would you have to be insanely athletic; you would have to be supernaturally athletic.

Does this make sense?  I suppose it does if you are an authoritative coach who wasn't born when short pips ruled the Earth or even when short pips with sponge in the hands of Zhuang Zedong won World Championships.

Poor short pips, with or without sponge.  Rest in peace; millenials hardly got to know you.  

Whinge. Piss. Whine. Moan.  Bawl.  Bitch bitch bitch.

Whimper.  Sniffle.  Gloom, despair, and agony.  Deep dark depression.  Bartender, another shot of Dianchi; this time forget the rocks.

I was told by the LA Open committee that I was going to get paid for filming and editing video for the tourney but there has been to reply to my emails for a while now. Nevertheless, here are some videos from the 2017 LA Open.

Sorry for some shaky video and some technical difficulties!
