Of course the hoped-for prize of a place on the Pro Tour for the top ranked player hasn't happened as the Pro Tour won't take a nomination from the EASB, no confirmation yet of what prize will be offered. And no indication yet as to how the EASB will use the 2 Q School places the Pro Tour have allocated them. Perhaps Wilson, maybe even Williams too, might have their entries fees re-funded?
Of the players in the top 10, 10th placed Craig Steadman already has a Pro Tour place through his PTC performance, Gary Wilson, Robbie Williams, Kyren Wilson, Tom Maxfield and Jeff Cundy have already entered Q School and Billy Castle, James Gillespie and Alex Dunkley have not. Not sure about Michael Wild he's not listed but there's a player listed for Q School called Mitchell Wild directly underneath the entry for Mitchell Travis, might be an error.
