Moscow Liga Pro Rules
The popularity of Russian table tennis can be traced to its non-stop competition. Matches run 24-7 each and every day.
Players compete in mini-round robin tournaments throughout the day. New groups alternate in and out every few hours.

Matches tend to be over in about 30 minutes. They’re best three-out-of-five affairs.
The first player to 11 points is the winner of a game. However, all games must be decided by a final outcome of at least two points. Service changes hands with every other point scored.
Ilyukhin All Over Nemashkalo
One of the delightful aspects of Moscow Liga Pro competition is that with so many matches being contested on a daily basis, there are lots of reference points to study prior to placing a wager. The sample sizes aren’t exactly small. Deciphering trends is relatively straightforward.
When it comes to trending, Evgeniy Ilyukhin is Vladimir Nemashkalo’s nightmare. They’ve faced each other 19 times during the month of April. Ilyukhin has won 15 of those matches.

Ilyukhin is currently riding a six-match win streak against Nemashkalo. He’s won 18 of their last 25 games in head-to-head competition. Ilyukhin is also 12-1 in the last 13 matches against Nemashkalo.
Interestingly, Ilyukhin is just 4-7 overall in his last 11 matches. But three of those four wins came at the expense of Nemashkalo, who’s dropped eight of his last 10 matches.
Pick: Evgeniy Ilyukhin (-400)

Lyfenko Mired In Deep Slump

Lyfenko has lost 11 of his last 14 matches. He’s 7-18 in his last 25 contests.
Alexander Gribkov isn’t exactly lighting it up lately, either. He’s dropped seven of his last 11 outings.
