I thought Antwerp is now a Tier I?

Am I right or hallucinating?

hallucinating

A man may fight for many things. His country, his friends, his principles, the glistening ear on the cheek of a golden child. But personally, I'd mud-wrestle my own mother for a ton of cash, an amusing clock and a sack of French porn.

Don't they expect to attract more top-ranked players if they made it tier 1? IMO it could take players from Paris and Dubai, and even Tokyo.
If Antwerp is tier 1, it would make sense to skip Tokyo (which many players do anyway) and play another tier 1 instead, or play Tokyo, take a week off, and play another tier 1.
For players who chose between Antwerp and Paris, or Antwerp and Dubai, the bigger money and points in Antwerp will attract there.

Bram, this is all impacted upon by the prospect of a longer off-season from (2007 forward?) which puts Oz in March, and shifts Everything Else around, I think.
