Hopefully, if SE spots aren't filled up. Bester getting one here should be NID, grew up in North Vancouver, even more NID if Peliwo does indeed get an SE.
Well I think the rules says if you are playing Saturday then you can have a SE in the same geographical location in a challenger next week. There's both European and South American challengers next week so the only challenger this week that someone would be directed to Vancouver first for the SE is Lexington.
Klahn is already into Vancouver. Ward is 1 withdrawal out of getting in. He would get the SE first if nobody else withdraws in like the next hour or so. Duckworth could have gotten in but chose to sign up for Washington qualies instead. He probably gets one too if he wants, so Filip could be out of luck.(well he'd get the WC so whoever would have got his WC would have been out of luck). We'll see tomorrow I guess.
I'd be dissapointed if Bester didn't get one, home tournament, just back from injury, he's done well there before. Had it been a Canadian owned tournament he would, sadly I think Americans will probably get the other 2. I blame Frank for not signing up and using the WC which when he could have been in directly
