Yes, he looks very likely to regain his Tour Card via the 1-year list.
He's managed to finish in the ideal position, just outside the top-80, which means he gets an easy match against an amateur to win £5000. Two of his rivals, Chen and Xu, are just inside the top-80 seeds, which means they will have to win to stay on tour, against White and Mann in round 2. They will be under huge pressure.
Likely that Jimmy's rival, Stephen Hendry, will have an inter-generational matchup with either Zhao Jianbo or Brandon Sargeant.
