Why do they give a WC to a Slovenian player? Veic would be a logical choice here.
To draw Slovenian tourists to the tourney? Dunno, but the tournament director always had a certain affinity for Slovenia.
I must say with all the hype they tried to generate during last season's tournament for this one, seeing how it's the 20th edition and how they plan on bringing some big names, I must say that I find the entry list a bit bland.
