* Players may earn a bye at a country other than their country of residence. Byes are awarded at the National Championships corresponding to the player’s nationality.

** Byes do not “stack.” If you have won a bye in another event (such as the S/P/T Championship) and finish in the top 2 of a Regional Championship, you will receive a maximum first- and second-round bye at your National Championships.
