Yes, probably a factor too - many of the Filipino players are based, much of the year, in the US and there is enough action to keep them busy.He declined an invite to the World Championship also which is in the UK. I think the only top Filipino on the list was Dennis. The Filipinos might still have trouble getting into UK. Purely a guess here, but it also wouldn’t surprise me if he’s staying in the US as long as possible if he’s worried about a ban. Just a guess.
