There could be a qualifying criteria, say only former top 48 professionals. It would also give a better chance for the older seniors (Taylor, Thorburn) to realistically compete.
How many frames are the matches and are they using the dreaded Shot Clock, does anyone know?
I remember they used a shot clock in the past for the seniors, don't think it was used in last years seniors final, I might be wrong though. Last year it was best of 5 up until the final that was best of 9.
Edit: at one point they considered showing heart rate data of the players as they were playing, that never happened though.
