AC or LT? wrote:Hopefully he can get on tour next season. Thanks to the money list he just needs a few deep runs.
More realistically, hope he gets through Q School or World Snooker, in light of this being something out of his control and down to their qualifying structure give him either a new two year card or a one year extension.
Did you not read Matts article?:
"Having won the IBSF World U-21 Championship last year in the UAE with victory against Ireland’s Josh Boileau, Hossein will then begin a fresh two-year tour card from the start of the 2015/16 season, starting on zero points.
Also from World Snooker
"World Snooker would also like to clarify that Under 21 Champion, Hossein Vafaei Ayouri, will be given special dispensation to compete on the Main Tour for the remainder of the 2014/15 season at the end of which he will be issued a 2 year Main Tour card for the 2015/16 and 2016/17 seasons, which he will start on zero points.
The decision to allow Hossein to compete for this initial period has been taken in the light of the exceptional circumstances surrounding this Amateur World and World Under 21 Champion and his well-documented struggles to access a visa to compete in Snooker events in the UK. World Snooker hope that this measure will enable Hossein to use this period to obtain a visa which may have otherwise been unobtainable.
