Have to say this ends any kind of special tournament status that it did have to stand out from the other tournaments on the circuit now. It's no more than a general ranking event now. Best of 11 Frames should never be a middle distance format.
Jesus christ almighty this is just bucking stupid on the BBC and Barry Hearn's part.
the excitement generated in session snooker out does any best of 5s,7s,9s or bucking 11s
this is 1 tournament since Barry Hearn's took over hes totally screwed the hell up he can argue all the buck he wants on twitter or any other bucking medium but that is bucking fact.
and Andre i think you will find the IC will be the bucking same.
