I really don't begrudge anyone at Q-School a card. It's a big achievement to get through that field. The problem is with some players who are good enough but didn't make it, like Harris. The cream did rise to the top this time as we've seen with Razma, Darius or Meuwisse but still you feel some players should have got a card based on their season on the CT
I agree, Cody does have the game, but he struggles a bit on the floor, like many others do.
We have mentioned before about the CT on here, and I would like to see maybe more than two cards awarded.
QS still has an element of the luck of the draw about it, and a change is maybe needed, but it is a worry for the likes of Cody, and possibly Hughes and Cammie, if they fail again this year.
What I would say about Cammy is that he does seem to have improved, and has a pretty good floor game (he'd have been well on course to qualify for the Worlds via the ProTour had he played the full circuit, and of course came close via the Challenge Tour). My main worry about him is that he's a mad cunt, still capable of imploding and averaging 75. When things go bad for him, he gets rattled far too easily, it must give his opponent so much confidence.

Oh, and who can forget him forgetting to fill in his application for the UK Open qualifiers last year!

Cammy is definitely great entertainment value and had a few good floor results, as did yozza in a few events.
The dilemma for him was when he qualified for the ET and missed four CT events. Hopefully he will do well this year and get his card.
This video of him sums him up really...

:pointing: it was priceless!
I like him. His match against cry baby from Holland was comedy classic!

I might be out of point but I hope that Cadby solves his visa issues.... We need good players such as him in action as I believe that he has the game to take on the van Gerwens, Smiths and Crosses of the situation....
