Note that there are some slight changes from the list in TRQ 4/01. All qualificants marked with * entered Round 1; qualificants marked # dropped out of the tournament before Round 1 began. Eight slots were available for the Finals. Three of them were given out to the best players of two meatspace tournaments:

Sunday, December 9, 2001 - Paris, France
Frederic Chorein (FRA) - advances to Finals
Wilfred Ranque (FRA) - advances to Finals


January 12, 2002 - Karlsruhe, Germany
Holger Janssen (GER) - advances to Finals

The other five slots were assigned to the winners of five mini-tournaments in Netspace, played out via IRC. Here are the results:
