The U66 division has the return of defending champion Rubens “Cobrinha” and in my opinion he is the favorite. Cobrinha has the experience and the technique and desire to repeat as champion for his third title. Major opponents are Augusto “Tanquinho” Mendes, who has a strong game and has had success against Cobrinha along with Bruno Frazatto and Justin Rader. Depending on the bracketing I see Cobrinha and Mendes finals.

Interesting to watch how Janusz Andrejcuzuk from Poland, Marcio Andre and the USA duo Geovanny Martinez and Eddie Cummings fare at this top level competition
