Given that they cover the Snooker Shoot-Out, and most of the Matchroom pool (which surely would not pull in as many viewers as a snooker tournament) the decision seems a little strange. Especially with those links to Hearn.
I'm not advocating SKY getting coverage, but am wondering why they pick up these minor parts of the calendar and not something more substantial.
They may feel the Eurosport coverage covers this for them I suppose but at the same time Eurosport has had conflicts with scheduling in recent times. Shanghai Masters recently being the main one.
Also as an aside - BT don't seem interested at all!
