    We are about 3 months away to the end of the qualification period for the 2013 world championship in August.

    This is the rule regarding the total number of players from any member association;

    [TABLE]
    [TR]
    [TD][TABLE="class: grid"]
    [TR]
    [TD]Players / pairs ranked on eligibility date[/TD]
    [TD]Total number of players / pairs from any one Member Association in that event shall not exceed[/TD]
    [/TR]
    [TR]
    [TD]1 to 8[/TD]
    [TD]4[/TD]
    [/TR]
    [TR]
    [TD]9 to 24[/TD]
    [TD]3[/TD]
    [/TR]
    [TR]
    [TD]25 to 150[/TD]
    [TD]2[/TD]
    [/TR]
    [/TABLE]
    [/TD]
    [/TR]
    [/TABLE]

    The current MS ranking (24/01/2013) and points for the Chinese players since 3rd May 2012 is;

    [TABLE]
    [TR]
    [TD][TABLE="class: grid"]
    [TR]
    [TD]Rank[/TD]
    [TD][/TD]
    [TD]Points[/TD]
    [/TR]
    [TR]
    [TD="align: right"]2[/TD]
    [TD]CHEN Long[/TD]
    [TD="align: right"]73330.316[/TD]
    [/TR]
    [TR]
    [TD="align: right"]3[/TD]
    [TD]DU Pengyu[/TD]
    [TD="align: right"]58746.31[/TD]
    [/TR]
    [TR]
    [TD="align: right"]14[/TD]
    [TD]WANG Zhengming[/TD]
    [TD="align: right"]40030[/TD]
    [/TR]
    [TR]
    [TD="align: right"]4[/TD]
    [TD]CHEN Jin[/TD]
    [TD="align: right"]40912.91[/TD]
    [/TR]
    [TR]
    [TD="align: right"]13[/TD]
    [TD]LIN Dan[/TD]
    [TD="align: right"]26823.411[/TD]
    [/TR]
    [/TABLE]
    [/TD]
    [/TR]
    [/TABLE]

    Obviously, it’s out of the question for China to send the maximum of 4. Currently the rank 24 has 42219.5 points let’s assume this is the target for now.
    That should be a formality for WANG Zhengming and CHEN Jin to get the points to stay in the top 24 but not so certain for LIN Dan, unfortunately.

    Between now and the end of April we have;

    [TABLE]
    [TR]
    [TD][TABLE="class: grid"]
    [TR]
    [TD][/TD]
    [TD]Winner[/TD]
    [TD]Runner up[/TD]
    [TD]3/4[/TD]
    [/TR]
    [TR]
    [TD]German GP Gold[/TD]
    [TD="align: right"]7000[/TD]
    [TD="align: right"]5950[/TD]
    [TD="align: right"]4900[/TD]
    [/TR]
    [TR]
    [TD]All England Premier[/TD]
    [TD="align: right"]11000[/TD]
    [TD="align: right"]9350[/TD]
    [TD="align: right"]7700[/TD]
    [/TR]
    [TR]
    [TD]Swiss GP Gold[/TD]
    [TD="align: right"]7000[/TD]
    [TD="align: right"]5950[/TD]
    [TD="align: right"]4900[/TD]
    [/TR]
    [TR]
    [TD]Australian GP Gold[/TD]
    [TD="align: right"]7000[/TD]
    [TD="align: right"]5950[/TD]
    [TD="align: right"]4900[/TD]
    [/TR]
    [/TABLE]
    [/TD]
    [/TR]
    [/TABLE]

    Note - India 2013 SS finishes just outside the qualification period.

    Lin Dan needs about 16000 points to get to the top 24. If he couldn't get enough points from the German and AE he may go for the Australian GP Gold otherwise 3 of China’s top 24 might have to sacrifice their places if China decided to send Lin to the world championship anyway.

    No pressure then.

    don't think it's possible.

    there is a good reason for that, say if i start a thread "put your name down to receive $100 from me" and change that to "give" later!

    yes. I read that, too.
    Lin Dan is NOT going to play German Open or All England 2013.

    I hope he does play the All-England .... it was a pleasure attending the finals with LCW and LD around these past two years. Important that I get, ahem, my money's worth.

    This year is the first time for many years that I’ve decided not going to the AE.
    After the WC and Olympics at Wembley for the last 2 years I think I needed to cool down a bit, too much excitements. Anything after those 2 would be an anti-climax, I think.

    If he is in the form like he was at Copenhagen Masters against Peter Gade, LCW will win for sure! :D
    But I don't think he will be, as he already told the media that he is already training for his comeback at AE.

    I think for China, country comes before countryman. So it is not at all implausible that the lower rank armies sacrifice their position for LD if worst comes to worst. But I think LD will accumulate points first, which I don't think is hard at all for him, just whether he is up to it. But if worst comes to worst, the final card will be used.
