Swap Maple Hill for European Open And you have the list.

Other reasons are that the European Open is the only big enough tournament outside of USA/Canada that has not been in Jeopardy in the last 10 years of closing.

Perhaps. But if it were an option, we'd know---at least among the small sample who answer the poll, to begin with.

To the degree that the poll shows anything, it shows that there's not much consensus. No unanimity on the biggest 2 events, a little more than half think something in Europe should be included, and little support for anything else. It certainly shows that the other events haven't risen to the point that they impel inclusion (at least to the poll respondents).

Or to put it another way, it appears that 80% of poll respondents think most of these events shouldn't be used. But at least the poll asked.
