Think the Semi Finals will be easy? They are all National champions seeded plus a potential 4 previous event winners from prelims playing a new 1:30 format.
Can you afford a mistake and make finals? Typically not.
Then it gets to finals.
Seeds: Janos as reigning Champ. Ahmad representing Asia. Carlos Europe.
Some of the qualifiers will have put a perfect 3 minutes in already on stage just to make the finals. Will they be better for that experience?
Stream details will be posted.
