Has the chinese players something in co
i have had this answer for myself, and then i readed in the Web something about it. 
I read that chinese play very cautiously, and maybe this is the common fact between this players in WWC-2017.  
For then, one cannt hope that they can be surprised easily, at any stage of the play.
