What is the status of the General Cup? I mean it's not on World Snooker's website. So is the tournament sanctioned by them or is it just a completely seperate invitational?

If the Tournament is Televised in any way shape or form it will have to receive the World Snooker Sanction otherwise im not sure.

But it is not part of the Main Tour

H2H ??


Looking at the head-to-heads on Cuetracker:

Michael White 3-0 Mark Williams Surprising!
x1 PTC but x2 in ranking tournaments, including in the semi-finals of the 2015 Indian Open which White went on to win.

Marco Fu 1-0 Zhang Anda (in a PTC)
Granted this is a relatively minor invitational competition, but Mighty Mouse could be on the verge of a first Pro-tournament victory!

This is getting a bit annoying.

Last year, this forum was collectively going; "Waaah! We're picking people based on rankings, not based on what they've won."

Now we're going; "*sniff* But, they're picking people because small trophies, not because they're big names."

No pleasing you people, is there? <doh>

Result:
Mark Williams 3-7 Marco Fu

Confidence booster for Fu, ahead of the UK Champs next week.

Just looked at the draw - and, without wanting to put a curse on Marco Fu - he's got a 'decent' draw.
I expect him to reach the last-16.
His route:
Last 128 v Hatem Yassen
Last 64 (probably v Yu Delu)
Last 32 (probably v David Gilbert)
Last 16 (probably v Shaun Murphy)
