How exactly do World Snooker plan on having all 128 players at EVERY VENUE? It just doesn't seem very feasible both logistically and timewise unless they hold the opening few rounds at Sheffield or the SWSA, which is what I suspect they will be doing. Leading to the farcical situation whereby a lot of the top players could be out of the tournament before it has even started properly.
There'll probably still be seeded so they'll face lower ranked players. And if a 'top' player can't beat someone ranked 65-128 they really don't deserve to seeded through to the venue.
