This was an extremely difficult decision to make but I believe it's for the best. I'm very proud of what we've accomplished in producing a quality tournament and could not in good conscious go forward knowing it would fall short of my expectations. It's not a light endeavor to produce an event like the Bangkok Open, nor is the commitment to train for competition, travel overseas and spend considerable money for hotel/food. It's with this sense of respect for what the event means to me and to those who partake, that I have come to decision. 

Thank you for your understanding and support.
