No idea of any others not playing yet, but guessing there will be a few more not entered given that Edgar is only number 7 in the CTOOM.

It looks like a whole bunch of players don't want to go to Germany. Tribault Tricole has been invited, and he's all the way down at No.14 on the Challenge Tour OOM:

Any idea why players are dropping out from Germany? Maybe my research skills are sub-par.

Karel Sedlacek (No.17 on the CT OOM) is also playing this weekend, according his manager, Matt Ward.

It's probably not really worthwhile financially for some of the UK-based players at the lower end of the tour (or for most of the invited Challenge Tour "alternates"), as they would need to take Friday off work, while also incurring higher expenses than for a "normal" Pro Tour weekend.

Oh, apparently four of the Challenge Tour alternates who were invited are already committed to the playing in the Online Live League this week: Lee Evans, Robert Owen, Andy Jenkins and Jesus Noguera.

That's something that we seen a lot more last year from certain European based players too (probably Corona related). Maybe time that the PDC thought a bit more about how to balance out the earning potential (versus costs) for non-UK pros! Europe, US/Canada, Australia. Or maybe they have and this is their solution!

Carlo van Peer (brother of Berry van Peer) has also accepted an invite. He is 30th(!) on the Challenge Tour OOM: https://twitter.com/Carlo_180/status/150...wNSig&s=19

Jeremy van der Winkel playing this weekend -

He is equal 27th on the Challenge Tour OOM - he shares the spot with leighton bennett. Wonder if he is going over as well?

They must really be struggling for players this weekend as just seen elsewhere that Lukas Wenig is playing - he is all the way down at 55 on the CT OOM!!!!

16yo Leighton Bennett is also on his way over there: https://twitter.com/L8tonbennett/status/...0282805248

Was wondering if he was going to go over - will be interesting to see how he does

No idea where the info came from, but just seen elsewhere that there will be 42 Challenge tour players participating this weekend!!!!!


EDIT: think the info may have come from here - this says at least 42 CT players have been invited though, not 42 CT players have accepted

FWIW this number doesn't pass the smell test for me. I'm sure that 42 CT players have been invited, but many will have declined their invites. The no.42 in the CT OOM, Owen Roelofs, said yesterday that he had been invited to play on Sunday, and will also be first reserve for Saturday: https://twitter.com/PVDarts180/status/15...3684588545.

I edited my post a short while ago saying I think the info came from here - it says at least 42 invited but doesn't say anything about them all accepting, in fact it actually say a lot of them would have obviously declined
