Re: Jamie Jones suspended for potential match-fixing

Jones' current ranking points are 132325. He's won over £130000 from ranking tournaments alone over the past 2 years.
By my reckoning, anyone in the top 80 can make enough from ranking tournaments alone to focus solely on snooker, never mind invitationals, exhibitions and sponsorship.

According to his mate on twitter (see snookerbacker's twitter account), he admitted to knowing that John was up to something and didn't come forward with the information at the time. If that's all there is to it, shouldn't be a long ban.

Hopefully that's all there is to it.

The thing is John or someone has landed him in it.


He was mentioned at the hearing by someone and immediately hes been suspended pending ferther enuieries.


in short he didnt have to have known anything just that someone has said he did. WPBSA had to act what hes been accused of is in breach of WPBSA Rules.
