this is the Grand Finale, so hopefully the rules will be bent a little to allow enough top players to qualify!

Have to participate in 8 SS to be invited to the Finals?
9. SUPERSERIES MASTERS FINALEach year after the Super Series tournaments have ended, there will be a final tournament to be
known as the Super Series Masters Finals. This tournament will be held subject to suitable
sponsorship arrangements being made.9.1. The venueThe BWF will fix a venue for this event and notify all players and Member Associations.9.2. Invitations to the Super Series Masters Final9.2.1. The highest ranked 8 players/pairs in the Super Series Standing list, will subject to
what follows, receive invitations to compete in the Super Series Masters Finals.
9.2.2. Players/pairs will qualify unless a total of two players/pairs from any one Member
Association would thereby be exceeded in that event.Deleted:competition
10. EVENTS PLAYED UNDER THE POOL SYSTEM OR IN GROUPS
So, I didn't find anywhere in the rulebook that a player/pair have to compete in at least 8 SS... I wonder how that Malaysian reporter can come up with his version of the rules...

^^Good cross checking..^^
..appreciate for checking the ruling on this; seems there's no criteria which demands players(s) to participate in 8 SS.
Although, looking at the list below, 1 or 2 of the players could be booted from the top 8 ranking. And we all know, in the MS event, Taufik is trying hard to get in or secure his spot.
1 LEE Chong Wei MAS 50440
2 DWI KUNCORO Sony INA 49320
3 PERSSON Joachim DEN 41580
4 CHEN Jin CHN 37940
5 GADE Peter Hoeg DEN 37060
6 JONASSEN Kenneth DEN 35760 (don't know if he'll participate or not)
6 BAO Chunlai CHN 35760
8 HIDAYAT Taufik INA 31560
9 WACHA Przemyslaw POL 29520
10 SANTOSO Simon INA 27840

Lin Dan can qualify to play in SS Finals afterall, the reporter looked up the rules or this thread, hehe
Badminton: Lin Dan could qualify for Sabah
By : K.M. Boopathy
lLin Dan needs to win the China Open which begins tomorrow, and Hong Kong Open (Nov 25-29) to play in the Super Series Masters Finals in Kota Kinabalu.
THE Super Series Masters Finals could see Olympic champion Lin Dan of China getting a chance to compete in Kota Kinabalu on Dec 18-21 although the World No 2 has only competed in three events so far.
There was confusion in the qualifying process initially as most players were under the impression that they must play a minimum of eight Super Series events to be eligible but the tournament regulations issued by the Badminton World Federation (BWF) has made it clear such a clause does not exist.
In order to qualify, the players must be ranked in the top eight of the Super Series standings and in cases where there are more than three players from one country in the top eight, only the top two make the cut.
Lin Dan is only ranked 16th with 24,800 points but if he can win the China Open which begins tomorrow, and Hong Kong Open (Nov 25-29), he has a good chance of making the cut.
Currently, Chen Jin is China's highest ranked player at No 4 with 37,940 points while Bao Chunlai is sixth with 35,760. Chen Yu, inactive on the international scene any longer, is ranked 15th with 25,260 points.
Chunlai, should he falter before the semi-finals in China and Hong Kong, will have to concede his place to Lin Dan if the latter secures both titles.
Indonesian Taufik Hidayat's job will be tougher if Lin Dan qualifies as the former is in eighth position and will have to look for at least semi-final berths in China and Hong Kong.
Malaysia will not affected by the ruling as Lee Chong Wei, ranked first in the Super Series, has already confirmed his place while Zakry Latif-Fairuzizuan Tazari, ranked second, should also make the cut.
Women's doubles Wong Pei Tty-Chin Eei Hui are virtually assured of their place as they occupy top spot.
Koo Kien Keat-Tan Boon Heong will also be in a race to qualify as they are in 15th position but semi-finals spot in China and Hong Kong will earn them a place as the gap between the Malaysian pair and the world's top eight pairs are not that vast.

I suppose robin7 is right, that is a tactical withdrawal on BCL's part.
Well, although it benefits LD, it would be nice to see him do battle at Likas next month. If he qualifies, of course.

i think that if the worlds top players don't compete then this tourney isn't going to be that prestigious. especially for the mens singles. if the current world and olympic champion cannot qualify, then something if flawed.
