The Dutch Masters will be hoping their passionate fans can give them a lift because they face an early test against another team hungry for a dub - Liman Huishan NE (SRB), who remain a contender duo to legendary duo Stefan Kojic and Mihailo Vasic.
We've buried the lead because top seeds Ub Huishan NE (SRB) always enter No.1 but it's been the toughest stretch of the season for these spectacular Serbs.
Ub have been thrown into the 'Group of Death' against Partizan (SRB) and Paris (FRA) - teams who are much more than dark horses.
Antwerp TOPdesk (BEL) have already tasted Masters glory, but they don't just want to be one-hit wonders.
They'll need Dennis Donkor to be an absolute competitive beast to fire them up because Beijing (CHN) loom large in an early blockbuster.
We have only just caught our breath from the absolutely insane final at the Cebu Masters between Miami (USA) and Vienna, who have a rematch on Day One.
You just know the sequel will be as good as the original.
Who are the players to watch?
The biggest party in Amsterdam during these two days will be at the Gashouder, where the loudest cheers will be reserved for one man - Worthy de Jong.
The Amsterdam high-flyer dazzles every time he takes the half-court and he is ready for take off at his home event.
