But what about the "big bad guys" like Alkis and Dagh for instance? I am still missing a few names of regular participants.
About the bigs, past year we had 4 multi World Cup winners,gathering 10 World Cup titles but it never happens all the years, in particular Dagh usually joins a World Cup each 2 years. Gianluca too, he rarely join the World Cup in consecutive years.
This particular year marks the absolute absence of Greek players and the reason is crystal clear, of course. Among them there is the multi world champions Alkis and Spyros. btw my best wishes to all our Greek KO friends and their families.
Anyway, although there is lack of world champions this year, there are many players that have all the card to rise the Holy Shied. And numbers say that every time it is said I'm the favourite for the title, I don't win.
So I believe there is much room for surprises this year. I will sell my life dearly though!
