We have modified system for selecting players to REC.

1) European players in top 50 of  World rating list (by 2014, April 1-st), who have played at least 10 rated games during 2013, April 1.- 2014.,March 31.  have personal places.
So they are:
Tunnet Taimla, Vladimir Sushkov, Ants Soosyrv, Aivo Oll, Yuriy Tarannikov, Dmitry Epifanov.
2)  Countries have: Top 15 from previous REC, as it was before (as Mr. Kawamura was in top 15, Russia will get one seat for 16th place in )
3)  RIF countries have 5 national places, non-RIF countries 3 places.
4) Organising country have 3 extra places
5) Each federation can send also so called "freeplayers", who will pay extra tournament fee - 100% more for RIF and 100% for sending federation (federation can not take this money).
For example, if Russian player who havent qualified in Russia want to join EC in Estonia, he/she should pay 60 or 90 euro instead of 30. 30 euro of that will go to organisers , 30 to RIF and if Russian Renju Association wants, they will take 30 euro as well.
