Waiting List

When the event is full a waiting list is automatically created. Spots will be automatically issued to players on the waiting list based on their registration timestamp. There are separate waiting lists for both divisions. 

Players who get a spot on the waiting list are not required to pay the entry fee. 

If a player moves from the waiting list to get a spot in the event, payment of entry fee is required. 

Wild Cards

Wild Cards are reserved spots in the tournament, and are granted at the discretion of the tournament organiser. The recipient of the wild card gains the right to register to the event - wild card recipients must still pay the entry fee for the event.

20 spots are reserved wild cards at the start of the registration; 15 for MPO players and five for FPO players. This ratio can still be changed, depending on the quality of the wild card applicants for each division.

One wild card for MPO and FPO is reserved for the winner of the European Amateur Open 2022 MA1and FA1 divisions. More detailed info on this wild card will be published with Amateur Open info.
