Why is it pointless?
Its purpose is to promote the sport in new places. With retrospect we might all agree it did not work- but you have to at least try.
You're as stubborn as wild
mate seriously no tournament that has potential to give the sport exposure its never had before and earning potential its never had before is pointless.
who won and loss was not that important but its been a success after a slow start and you could see even if you could not understand what he said how emotional and how much having a pro event in Brazil meant to Rui Chapeu the former Brazilian champion when he was interviewed at the MSI.
not to mention the $11,000 Igor Figuiredo made out of this event plus exposure he had and hopefully get a backer so that he can come over to the UK For the remainder of the season.
its been worth it all the way snooker is the winner by staging this make no mistake about it.
