Big Brother won the 1st annual Naipao Tires Dalian Beach Tournament over the weekend, winning round-robin games by scores of 13-3, 13-1 and 13-2.

Dalian’s press corps was out in force to cover the event — mostly the mayor’s appearance, I think — and this article surfaced a couple days after the tournament.
There’s much more coverage of this event over at the Beijing Ultimate blog.
UPDATE, 8/11: Facebook albums now available: Saturday; Sunday.
