The eight places are already assured with Barry Hawkins securing the final spot.
Hawkins had the final place in the field for the event at the Celtic Manor Resort in his grasp, but had he slipped up on Friday it would have opened the door for Zhou Yuelong.
Hawkins did not progress to the final group of the Pro Series, as Sam Craigie and Jack Lisowski took the qualifying spots, but in finishing third he closed the door on Zhou’s hopes.
