This match features:
Yan Bingtao winning The Masters
“In January 2021, a new era in snooker was born.”
Will snooker fans and pundits look back at the 2021 Masters as a watershed moment in years to come? It’s too early to say, of course. But beating all-time great John Higgins in the final was but one of several instances of Yan Bingtao showing maturity beyond his years in winning the Masters ages just 20.
It’s no surprise that this is the number 1 seed and heavy tournament favourite.
Chengdufan’s rankings thread
Many of us have identified flaws in the current ranking system, and even suggested improvements.
Chengdufan went several steps further, not only implementing an alternative system but going back through the history of snooker to apply it over the years and decades. Currently into 2018, Chengdu’s thread is fast closing on the present day at which point I can only assume he’ll present his system to WST while asking, “Why aren’t you doing this, ya mooks?”
