Deadline. 
 
These players will be sorted into groups of the same nationalities and ranked 
within those groups. Ties between players within those groups will be 
randomly drawn. 
 
Each country represented will be allocated the same number of draw chips as 
the number of players from that country. Each time a chip is drawn the 
highest ranked player from the country represented by that chip shall be 
selected. 
 
Thereafter, all remaining entered players who are unranked and have no 
National Ranking, shall be randomly drawn for a position on the 
Qualifying/Alternate List.
And most of the 10k qualifying draws are filled with byes, so everyone who seriously wants to play pro tournaments will find an opportunity.
I'm confused by the code message. Isn't ones position on an entrance list when they are unranked determined by their national ranking???
