Dear Cubingchina members,

Due to technical problems, the registration system of Hangzhou Open AM/PM 2021 got malfunctioned, as the registration is open at 22:00 on March 10, 2021.
After internal discussions and application to the WCA Board, the following arrangement is set:
Increase the competitors limit of both competitions, so that all the players who paid the registration fee in the waiting list will enter the competitors list
Therefore, the updated competitors limits of Hangzhou Open AM and PM 2021 are 103 and 90, respectively.
Prepaid registrants in the waiting lists should pay attention to the competitors list updates of these two competitions. We apologize for the inconvenience.
Please also note that, the registration fee paid repeatedly will be refunded to the corresponding payment account soon.
Thank you again for your attention and support to these competitions!
