well they looked for it in 2005, but Bob Verbeeck is still doubting as they rather have a strong Tier II then a weak Tier I (eg. Moscow)

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.
