It doesn't make sense, but this event exists now purely as a vehicle for the bookies to lay bets.

It's a rubbish event, and we want rid of it.

But, it'll exist for as Long as the bookies say so.

the prize money must be worth entering. Plus best of 5 even Matt Selt has a chance to win. If he qualifies to enter this anyway.
