The announcement of NorCal Regionals 2011 mentioned the possibility of Daigo Umehara's appearance. The event is on June 18-19, around 5 days between CEO 2011 (June 10-12) and Shadowloo Showdown 2011 (June 25-26). It could be another busy month for Umehara.
Last year in November, Umehara went to North America 3 times and to Kuwait.
- SoCal Regionals 2010  [November 5-7]
- The Canada Cup 2010 [November 13-14]
- NorCal Regionals 2010 [November 20-21]
- Exhibition in Kuwait [November 26, 2010]
Talking about tight schedule, Umehara is yet to play Tougeki 2011 qualifier. We only know now for one thing that he won't go with (his close friend) Bon-chan who went with Momochi.
This year's Tougeki for SSF4AE is 2 on 2, instead of 3 on 3 like last year.
