It is a Challenge Series, commands lower "Ranking Points" - but it will have more players than many other tournaments.  So far, 291 players entered.

(German open commands much higher Ranking Points, but has only 153 entries so far.)

this is the chance for lower ranked players to get some international results...
In Germany, they know they won't manage to get out of the pool
You can't enjoy an easy win.

Perhaps many of these players are attracted by performance enhancing/boosting Polish food: pierogi, bigos, kielbasa ... and drinks: Chopin, Belvedere, Luksusowa

Polish Open now has 300 players - the list is growing.

You are right, may be something very attractive there - in Poland.

The Challenge Series that has the lowest number of players is DPR (or PRK) open in North Korea.
Last year it has only 2 players from another country, KAZ.
ITTF still has that event scheduled in June this year.

Are Jewish boys possessing some eminent faculties for table tennis?


Polish born Aloiz Ehrlich, chronical "chopper", he used oversized odd-looking paddle.
He survived while in the "camp of death" as playing pingpong the camp's chief warden.    German Nazi had a sincere respect for him.

All the pre-war 1920-1940 pingpong champions were of Jewish origin. Why?    Give Your every theory, please.

So far, 305 players have entered, the list is growing.
The Polish Open will have far more players than Qatar Open or German Open.

No USA player entered at this moment.
Canada has 3 players including Eugene Wang.

No player from China.
Japan and Korea, each has 14 players.
