When the last of the entries were accepted, and the totals of each tournament were added up, it turned out that the 2010 O2C Doeberl Cup had attracted an exact 250 players. This is yet another record for the tournament, breaking last years total of 237 players.
Both the Premier and the Major (1400-2000) attracted 72 players, which continues the shift of previous years to a more balanced distribution between the events (rather than a heavier concentration in the Premier). Indeed one player shifted from the Premir to the Major because "the Major is now quite strong", which isn't so much suggesting that it is stronger than the Premier(!), but that the top end of the Major is also quite competitive.
The Minor (Under 1600) had 68 players enter, and the 38 players in the 2 Day Under 1200 event brought the field up to 250. There was also a record field in another event, but I will get to that in my next post.
