Ma Chunmao in hospital

Postby lhpirnie

The Xinjiang player Ma Chunmao has been in hospital, suffering from carbon monoxide poisoning. He was in a coma in ICU for a whole week, but has now finally regained consciousness and is expected to make a full recovery in time.

There was a magnificent effort to raise funds for his treatment from various organisations and players in China, including Liang Wenbo, Xiao Guodong, Zhou Yuelong, Chang Bingyu, Li Hang, Luo Honghao, Jin Long and Niu Zhuang. Without their donations, Ma would certainly have died.


Ma Chunmao is a strong amateur, and an important figure in Xinjiang. He's had wins against some professional players, including Michael White, Kurt Maflin, Craig Steadman and most of the Chinese players. He came close to professional qualification a few times, but now is mainly involved in coaching.
