Five.


I wouldn't say it was five times tougher, maybe about 20% harder.

I think that date might have just been taken over form 2017. It was ran by the Malyasian Darts Org with their open. And quite well advertised.
the open is being played on 4-7 October but no mention of the qualifier.
So I'm none the wiser.

The Malaysian Open isn't ranked this year so I think you are right. In fact I think only the Japan open is ranked in Asia at the moment so unless it was done over that weekend they may just be picking someone off the ranking list.

I notice the BDO still havent put the names of the 34/35 (?) qualified players on the website yet, despite the qualifier having started an hour or so ago.

The British Darts Organisation is pleased to announce that the following players will be invited to compete at the 2019 BDO World Professional Darts Championships.

The two men that gave us all a true “Lakeside Classic” in the 2018 final top the BDO invitational rankings table, with ‘Gladiator’ Mark McGeeney at No.1, ahead of the double-defending BDO World Champion, ‘Duzza’ Glen Durrant. Following an impressive season on the circuit, former World Cup Singles champion ‘the Quiff’ Jim Williams is in third place on the seeding list, with twice Lakeside semi finalist ‘Sparky’ Wesley Harms seeded fourth.

The 16 seeds for the men’s competition include two former BDO World Champions, ‘Scotty Dog’ Scott Mitchell and ‘Scotty 2 Hotty’ Scott Waites. Last year’s surprise semi finalist, ‘T-Rex’ Michael Unterbuchner returns seeded 5, with familiar faces ‘Big Robbo’ Gary Robson, ‘the Boss’ Ross Montgomery and Welsh legend Martin Phillips also amongst the seeds. Having recently won both British Classic and British Open titles, ‘Flyers’ Richard Veenstra is seeded 8, while Dave Parletti qualifies as the highest ranked debutant, seeded 11.
