    The venue limit was announced from when the event was first advertised, so people wanting to play should have signed up as soon as entries opened.
    The most we have ever previously had is 144 and when last held in 2019 it was only 129.
    If fact in previous years we have been nowhere near 140 even the week before.

    The Venue was booked in 2019 following the last event run (with a booking deposit)
    Previous events at this venue have consistently attracted similar numbers. (I think 144 max)
    2020 was Covid -19 bust.
    2021 - Covid restrictions on venues are still in place - and 140 seems like a reasonable event.

    I doubt peoples lack of planning is not a national emergency

    I see my name is still on the U1600 list despite the fact that I have notified the organisers that I couldn't make it.
    I hope this will be corrected by the time the tournament starts and someone else will be given the opportunity to play. Cheers

    Great job by Isaac Zhao to escape the Vic Lookdown (if it is the Isaac that I am having in mind that is).
