Well today it has been confirmed that Pankaj Advani has chosen to withdraw from the International Championship in China at the end of the month, an event which saw him and compatriot Aditya Mehta both qualify and create headlines for Indian snooker in doing so last month.
He has chosen to play in the billiards IBSF World Championships to be held in Leeds Northern Snooker Centre from 18th to 28th October. The dilemma was all about that one extra day because the 28th is when the International starts over in China.
It is disappointing news for snooker fans, but Advani has shown with this decision that he's not in it for the money and he really is passionate about billiards. He knew the sacrifice he was making, he spoke with passion in the interview about reaching the venue of the International so he will be as disappointed as anyone that he is not going to take part.
This all begs the question, what happens now if he gets knocked out of the billiards early on?
