World Snooker Championship: Organisers defend size of pockets
Tournament organisers have denied claims the pockets are bigger than normal at the 2016 World Championship.
Several players, including 2010 winner Neil Robertson, have been highly critical of the pockets, describing them as "massive" and "like buckets".
Seven-time champion Stephen Hendry said on Twitter on Friday that it was "#bucketry at the Crucible".
But a World Snooker spokesman said: "The pocket templates are exactly the same as they are at every other event."
