is there any logic to how they pick the 4 players each player plays in their league matches.
come on Jimmy this is woeful
I think it was a draw from those who had events in hand - obviously to allow and avoid the prospect of only three having an event in hand by the end.
The tournament for each night is seeded as follows with the higher player on each list meeting the fourth and second against third.
1 Ronnie O'Sullivan Defending champion
2 Mark Williams German Masters champion
3 John Higgins UK, Welsh Open and World Champion
4 Ding Junhui Masters champion
5 Neil Robertson World Open champion
6 Ali Carter Shanghai Masters champion
7 Shaun Murphy PTC Finals champion
8 Judd Trump China Open champion
9 Matthew Stevens Championship League champion
10 Jimmy White World Seniors Champion
