    mr. minion, you need to subtract 1 of the 2 following options from points earned in a tournament:
    1. the 10th lowest tournament result points used to calculate their ranking, or
    2. the previous year's result from the same tournament.

    This is Race to Guangzhou, not the ranking table in general. All of Grade 2 tournaments will be taken into account. Doesn't matter if the players play more than 10 Grade 2 tournaments. The points will be add up, no subtraction. Plus, previous year's result has nothing to do with this Race to Guangzhou.

    this particular tournament pays for the players travel and accommodation expenses.

    yeah, normal ranking system has nothing to do with Race to Guangzhou.

    The ranking table of HSBC Race to Guangzhou. Too lazy to make any analysis as there will be many things happen in the remaining tournaments. MS and MD are really erratic, expect major change in the top 8. WS is the most ideal. 7 players who are in the safe zone are in the top 8 at ranking table. Just need HBJ to complete it.

    World Champions to be automatically qualified in the World Tour Finals doesn't sound right. What the WC only managed R1 in any other Super series or have only less than 10000 points?

    Now, that is a nice gesture. Is the tournament really going to pick up the tab for fourteen Unisys players?

    According to the relevant NBA document, they are listed as self-financed players, ... but that does not preclude the payment of expenses by other organisations. Whatever the case, all of the participants will have applied for and received permission from the NBA to play in this particular tournament.

    dubai indeed covered plane fare as well last year, but it was not stated in the destination dubai prospectus.

    this is not to say hsbc will not cover plane fare also, in so much it means i have no knowledge whether they actually will.

    The probability of this to happen is 0.00000001%. Plus, history has proven that most of the world champions are high profile one. One time wonder like Ko/Shin is rare.

    I guess it is there purely for the publicity. And that's what BWF want for the game.

    Another factor might also be part of the sponsorship package with HSBC which requires world champions to be present in the finals.

    With the withdrawal of both Dechapol/Sapsiree and Yuta/Arisa in Syed Modi International, their maximum points possible will not exceeded Zheng/Huang's points. This means Zheng/Huang are confirmed as seeded one in World Tour Final.

    The Thais have also qualified in WD. The Danes and Indonesians can't both reach the Hong Kong Open final so only a maximum of 7 pairs can pass them.

    There is another provision which says that the World Champion won't get the wild card if they are not ranked in the top 20 in the world rankings.

    Do you mean that DEN pairs and INA pairs can't go to Hongkong Open final? Let's not speculate that they surely won't be able to go to final.

    Fruergaard/Thygesen are in the safe zone. I won't count their maximum points possible.
    Next one are Lee/Shin who are one strip below the Danes and out of safe zone. They will participate in Fuzhou China Open, Hongkong Open, and Korea Masters. Their maximum points possible will be 52070 + 11000 + 9200 + 7000 = 79270. This point is higher than the THA's point. So, it is not mathematically guaranteed for THA pairs to qualify.
