Steve West and above will be now, not many events left. In any case Cross is likely to transfer across to the left hand side before the cutoff.
Big changes on the way ! We've heard it before but it's different this time !!!! , I believe Bdo gonna grow x

The Wikipedia page says that Viljanen has qualified. From past experience, a Scandinavian would qualify from the Scandinavian Darts Corporation tour. Anyone can confirm this?

Word is Jenkins is entering the final 2 Players Championships of the year. Will it be enough, you wonder?

I don't think so because he hasn't been playing for a long while, and many players are better and more consistent than Jenkins even on the floor these days?

I dunno you know, the list in the OP presumably includes guaranteed money at all events players are qualified for (so the Grand Prix and the European Tour events).

I can only see Cross and Kist overtaking Jenkins and that would put Jenkins down in 32nd. So I reckon it would be close.

The problem Jenkins has is that he will be an unseeded player and could get nightmare draws.

I don't mind Jenks.

Pipe and Dolan can fuck off though. Dolan is on the cusp by the looks of things. He's barely in the top 32, and his Pro Tour earnings would leave him outside the top 16 at present time.

Viljanen is already guaranteed to finish top of the Nordic Tour again with one weekend to go (€2,600 clear of second place, €2,400 max to be won), so he's definitely going to Ally Pally again. According to the Nordic org second place will also qualify as usual, but that's still up for grabs.
