OK, for the finals event. Rather than try to cut down to 64, here's what I'm going to do. The top 64 in the order of merit are in by right. However, additionally, I'll also include any invites who are scoring more per tournament than the 64th placed finisher. So, as of right now, with 64th being on £11,750, they would need to be on at least £7,000 to gain entry to the finals day. Seedings will be done on money won per event, in the situation where there's more than 64 players, there'll be a play in round with 64v65, 63v66 and so on as needed, and then seeded as normal. Ties for seedings will be broken by playoffs, because we can. In terms of non card holders, here's who's on at least £5,500 so has a shot at entry with a board win (a requirement which, could of course, rise):

Corey Cadby £20,750
Wayne Warren £11,500
Seigo Asada £7,750 (not playing event 30)
Jim Williams £7,500
Cameron Menzies £7,500
Fallon Sherrock £7,500
Nathan Rafferty £6,750
James Richardson £6,500
Scott Mitchell £6,500
Arron Monk £5,500
Cody Harris £5,500

Obviously Cadby's in regardless, and Warren could do the sameif he can nick a win, but there's at least four who should make it barring a very strange set of results, and then another few who are in with a shot if they can pick up a win or two. I won't sim tonight, it's too late, but this should give you an idea of what your favourite player needs to do in conjunction with the previous post of players around the cutoff.
