The Selectors have put forward the names of all players who expressed interest in playing in the 2006 world championship, including those who did not meet the playing criterion in 2006. They did however feel that special consideration should be given to Stephen Mulliner who had to withdraw from the Open Championships in 2005 at the last moment due to personal problems. The Selectors considered that as Stephen had supported this format in previous years and his playing ability was in no doubt, he should be given high priority in the wild card listing.
The full list of player submitted to the WCF in order of preference is:
I am pleased to announce that the first two wild cards have now been offered to Stephen Mulliner and Ian Lines.
