You have to assume Fallon will be given an invite given she was invited to all the worldwide events. Probably will be something like 8 OoM, 8 invitees and 8 qualifiers, although it'll just be the usual suspects (maybe including Rowby-John as a local player). A bit compromised, but what can you do? It's a glorified exbo at the best of times
Oh yes Fallon, I conveniently forgot about her...

If they are good enough they’ll qualify through the qualifier anyway (unless they play each other, when one won’t, obviously)...

I am disappointed that Dirk van Duijvenbode hasn’t been picked. Reaching a Euro tour semi and a pro tour semi for the first time in the space of 2 months of a season that has been severely interrupted deserves a shot in my eyes over Sherrock, at least.

Lol at the idea of 'deserving' WS picks, you get given your place for reasons beyond pure ability. Little surprised Rowby-John wasn't picked as a home player, though I guess there'll be no crowds

Glad the international players have been given an invite given they didn't get the chance in the regular season events

I agree bud but.

I know it's an exbo but is Hearn realy saying the public want to watch Ian White and Kyle Anderson over Noppert who was runner up last year!!!! and Ratajski,Durrant,de Sousa and probably even Fatpot or Clemens

Kyle Anderson, probably, I don't imagine many people will be wanting to watch Ian White in Australia. Durrant's perhaps a bit unlucky as he's actually on form, but this list makes sense, a mix of the top players and 'local' players

It's the top 8 in the main OoM.
Plus 9-12, which includes Dimitri... true story! Calamity Glenda is unlucky #13.

Pretty standard stuff. After that, nobody will agree with anyone else.

One thing though, why is Anderson a seed, when he's world #9, and Wade a non-seed, when he's world #8?

Could be something like that. They should have a decent reason because it makes quite a big difference as the seeds don't have to play on day 1.

No Durrant is really strange. Hard to argue with the rest, a World Series final should be all about international players obviously, that's the whole point.

No Noppert is even more strange when it means MVG is the only Dutch player in the field. Ratajski a strange omission as is Durrant.
