Thank you very much
The lottery system Jeff mentioned above was for the Advanced Amateur division (through which I hope to win a spot again this year). But for Pros with ratings above 970, you *should* be able to qualify for a Pro spot based on your rating (totally different system). Jeff should be able to say more about the specifics of that, but as I recall last year Pro registration started with 1000+ rated players, and then opened a bit later for 990+ rated, and then a bit later for 970+..
