First Group Stage
For the group stages I propose that the current 128 tour players are split into 16 groups of 8. In each of these groups each player should play each other member of that group in a best of 19 match - played in 8,11 session form frames. The top four players in each group should progress to the second group stage.
Second Group Stages
For the second group stage the top four players from each round one group should be seeded in the eight groups for the second matches. With two first placed players in each group, 2 second placed players in each groups, 2 third placed players in each group and two fourth placed players in each group. Each player should play each of player in their group in a best of 25 played in 8,8,9 session form. Each of the top 4 players from these groups should progress to the third group stage.
Third Group Stage
In the third group stage the 32 players who came in the top 4 of the second group stage would be seeded in the same form that they had in the previous round to eight groups of four. The top two players (16 total) should progress to the knock out stage of the tournament. Each of the round robin matches in this game should be played as a best of 35 in 11,11,13 session form.
Last 16: Best of 55 over 5 11 frame sessions.
Quarter Finals Best of 69 over 11,11,11,11,11,14 session form
Semi-Finals Best of 83 over 11,11,11,11,11,11,1
Finals Best of 99 over 9 11 frame sessions
