Not in this Series.

He may be invited back if they run it again. I don't think it's been announced if they will be or not.

The last regular week is Nov 7-9 (featuring Tony Drago) then Finals week will be Nov 14-16

What is this 900?

Is it some pro-am event?

Should I be more interested in it?

It's an event for Amateurs. They have 12 players a week over 8 weeks, Monday to Wednesday night. Each weekly winner will play in the Winners Group and the winner gets 20k. (I'm not sure if the winner's group is just 1 night or not. As they only have 8 players I guess it is)

It's basically a snooker version of the Modus Darts, Designed to provide betting product late at night.

It's mildly interesting to watch but the standard has been mostly very poor.

Noticed Carter couldn't help himself last night on comms and had to get a dig in at O'Sullivan.

He started off brilliant went into the pack and was very unlucky but got another chance and missed that easy red, hancorn took over then, god knows what Tony was doing with that mask tho, putting it on when match finished then taking it off when in studio, bizarre

Maybe he put it on as protection from his fists?

Ben wins!

Ben Hancorn beats Harvey Chandler in the Week 8 final.

Chandler was about 30 ahead with 3 reds left and played a terrible safety.

Ant Parsons won Finals night and with it the £10K prize money.

Dennis was on commentary and after his absence from the UK was nice to hear those old Dennis-isms again, "a little bit of tension" probably my favourite of the evening.
