We asked a couple of the best players in the room to pick a winner for the upcoming World Championship. Here's what they said:
Patrick Dickmann: I'm rooting for Jérémy Dezani. A good friend and a funny guy.
Willy Edel: Someone from South America or Asia. I don't think a European or American player will win. If I had to pick someone who's not me, it'd be Lee Shi Tian.
Paulo Vitor Damo da Rosa: Hopefully me!
Shahar Shenhar: I will. Not just this year but next year too. We'll have to see about 2016."
Fabrizio Anteri: I like Ivan Floch.
Martin Jůza: Paulo [Vitor Damo da Rosa].
