After a lot of hard work, it’s become a reality:

Who are the early favourites? With no JWong and no Amir (as far as we know), will Fubarduck run the Chun shop? Will Pyrolee join the tournament and prove himself once and for all that he is the best of the rest? Will the Korean players like A-Ryu come out of nowhere and tear shit up? Will SBO freshmen like HarmoNaz and Hong show that they have something to prove?

One thing that’s great to see is players who didn’t qualify for SBO (BillyKane, PaulT) still entering - no matter who wins, the level of play will be sick and at least for me, fulfil many dream matches.

This looks interesting!
There will be Chinese players also (from Shanghai iirc), I wouldn’t underestimate them

This was needed, really - all we knew was that Japan > any country in 3s, but ranking other countries/regions was pure guesswork

This is a good idea, I wouldn’t have thought of it myself. Especially since if I were to go to SBO I’d be primarily concerned with playing as many top Japanese players as I could fit in/afford. I hope everyone that fits the description answers the call. I really have no idea what to expect.
