6 reds in thailand usually.

I wonder if they'll be able to increase the prize money / ranking points for the Home Nations events, to make up for the fact that the lucrative Chinese events won't be played...

Who would be some of your pairings?

Re: next season's calendar

Postby SnookerEd25

I’d rather like Ding & King

White & White

Dale & Swail

And, of course, Reanne Evans & Mark Allen - can’t beat a good domestic

The calendar looks good. To be honest I’m not going to miss the Chinese events, mainly because of the times they were aired at. One of the biggest downsides of viewing overseas matches from the UK.

Would have made a lot more sense to get all the players over to China a few months ago and have endless tournaments here.
The matches are mostly middle of the night here, which is a bit silly considering this is where the vast majority of snooker watching fans live.

No, Mark Joyce would partner his mum in a classic grudge-pairing <ok>

I'd also rather have seen a Riga Masters and Paul Hunter Classic instead of the shoot out and championship league? we had 2 championship leagues already in 2020, having a 3rd is just getting annoying and boring. Making it a ranking event is just stupid.

They still may have these in 2021. I think they don't want any travelling abroad whilst there is a chance of a 2nd wave. The German masters qualifiers in December is a good sign they will have some European events in early 2021

I’m excited for next season now. Just a shame we don’t have a couple more proper events even like the Riga Masters

i think it will be more like the recent edition but they will have to give different money/points for the different group positions.


This.

At a guess it'll be 32 groups in the First Round, 8 in the second round with two Semi-Final groups (with the top two making the last group) unless they have a direct final.

Do they need Three weeks to play that kind of comp? If it was a Knock-out groups stage

I'd like to see a Masters event on the scale of the Mita World Masters in 1991, which comprised different formats: Men’s & Ladies Singles, Mens & Ladies Doubles; Mixed Doubles; Juniors, Over 50’s. Play it in a large NEC type venue, compatible with a multi table set up.

It's time to bring back The Bahrain Championship.

Due to current travel restrictions, it will be held in Barnsley.
