Reserves:

If someone is unable to attend or not eager to participate, a reserve will get the opportunity to play. For the people who were selected through a non-European competition (due to the distance to the EQC more likely to pass) the next available person from that competition will be invited.
If anyone who was selected through a European competition or the WQC passes, we continu using the selection criteria. This yields currently this reserve list:

R1. Harald Aastorp (Norway)
R2. Bernard Kreps (Belgium)
R3. Rob Hannah (Scotland)
R4. Derk de Graaf (Netherlands)

People who are selected but are not planning to attend the EQC or not eager to participate, please let us know as soon as possible. Take care: once you’ve denied your spot, you cannot reclaim it afterwards.
