I thought White was getting a wildcard for next year so doesn't need to bother?


Some familiar names there.

Rory McLeod, Ross Muir and Xu Si should be good enough to get back on tour.
Good to see Josh Boileau giving it another go, he won a European underage title a few years back after all.
Always interesting to see how Reanne and Ng Yee get on, as well as this Rebecca Kenna girl.
Paul Davison to make it 50th time lucky?
Jamie Cope will be a strong contender you'd think
Dessie Sheehan is 69 years old, I guess if you have a dream though...
Is Jamie Judd's brother?

I believe so. Though he didn't win a frame at last year's school, so I wouldn't hold my breath for any fraternal rivalries on the main tour.

There is also an Andrew Doherty in the draw. Possibly related to Ken?

On second thoughts his brother is Jack Trump. So maybe not.

Is there a tournament calendar out for next year season yet?

James Cahill hasn't entered. Having lost to Maguire I guess he thinks snooker isn't the sport for him.

It's hard to think of one decent result he's had in the professional game.

He beat Andrew Higginson 10-9 in qualifying after leading 7-0 at one stage. I assume Higginson was docked quite a few frames for turning up late?

The ball is squaring up after hitting the cushions and Higgins isn't happy.

Think Mark Allen's stepson is there, also Mr Pinches junior?

There are 18 pros dropping off tour trying to get back via Q School. Only 12 places available though.

That guy does some superb work. The hardcore snooker fan community is small, but I'm sure we're all grateful for his dedication, especially uploading replays and highlights of matches that aren't shown on TV in the UK.

I read somewhere that Pang Junxu (the kid that beat Carrington in the qualifiers for the Worlds) was staying in the UK for a month afterwards because he was attending Q School - but he isn't on the list. CBSA must have decided to fast track him as one of their two tour card nominees?

Would be ridiculous if Dessie Sheehan got on Tour at 69
