The match of Tai-Sai might be best clarified by recalling its old Chinese name, which has been Baileighou (meaning large and little ). The name was changed in order to prevent confusion with its current designation of Sai Ko, (significance big and small) in a effort to prevent any affiliation with the activity whose identify that it inherited. The phrase"baileighou" suggests substantial and small, and so the game was at first played in that way. In Chinese language, but the term is normally rendered as"bailei", which literally means"significant and little." It hence refers to the game to be"massive and modest." This easy regard to size has, unfortunately, provided rise to confusion from the heads of some players as to whether it's a match of skill, or only fortune.
