Aleksandr Pogorelov is fifth in the 2005 outdoor top list, so he must stay in the top 4 athletes list till 20th February or one of the 2005 top 4 athletes must refuse his participation.

Going by the last years statistics, Aleksey Drozdovs result is enough to stay in the top 4 athletes list in this season.
