The Open Singles event kicks off at 11:00 a.m. with the preliminary round robin groups. Matches to watch in this stage are in Groups 3, 12 and 13 where the wildcard international players from Indonesia may pose significant threats to the seeded players. With only one player advancing from each group into the round of 16, every match in the initial rounds will be important.

The round of 16 in the Open Singles event will take place immediately following the conclusion of the round robins and will feature some spectacular matches. If the preliminary round robins go to seeding, the round of 16 will feature such high level matches as Cheng Li (2558) vs.  Jon Ebuen (2507), Qi Wei (2510) vs. Rajat Hubli (2471), and Bowen Chen (2520) vs. Dan Seemiller (2494). However, all players must clear their preliminary rounds in order to qualify into the round of 16 (the first round with prize money). The Open Singles event will continue on Saturday afternoon with the quarterfinals, semifinals and finals taking place at 2:30 p.m., 4:30 p.m. and 5:30 p.m. local time.  Open Doubles will begin at 6:00 p.m. and feature top doubles teams as Cheng Li/Tong Zhang (2015 Collegiate Champions), Jishan Liang/Yichi Zhang and Ruichao Chen/Nathan Hsu.
