This isn't something I often hear on this site but thanks LOL
And yeah prize money shouldn't reflect ranking points. I give example to another sport - tennis.
4 grand slams - 2000 ranking points each
9 masters - 1000 ranking points each
world tour finals - 1500 ranking points
then you have the smaller tournaments, ATP 500 are 500 ranking points and ATP 250 are 250 ranking points
always consistent, never changed. prize money is different across different grand slams and masters (small variation but in the same ballpark) but the ranking points never change. Also a 1 year ranking system. Simple as heck. No idea why Snooker can't follow the same principle. Just think there needs to be some form of consistency and it's why I always thought Snooker has always been a "growing" sport, not established to stone because things always keep changing.
