The race to the European Championship continues with over half of events completed before the cut off. Adrian Lewis, Steve West & Paul Nicholson have all but secured their spots in Dortmund.
Lewis currently sits in 15th place in the table and with him entered into Copenhagen as well as the two requisite qualifiers for European Tour 9 & 10n this could mean the qualification is certain for the European Championship.
West is in 18th and like Lewis is qualified for the next event in the series. Nicholson will hope to continue his good form on Friday and qualify for both events in Hamburg and Hildesheim to confirm his qualification.
Kyle Anderson currently occupies the final spot; but will probably be replaced due to Stephen Bunting being a seed for the next three events in 33rd place currently. Also the likes of Darius Labanauskas could find their place into the top 32; with him qualified for all but one event as of now. He can qualify for Copenhagen through the subsequent Host Nation qualifier.
