I don't know, but I see on Snooker.org's Calendar for next season that of the (so far) 17 events that carry ranking points, 14 of them are classed as 'rankers', with 3 being termed 'minor- ranking' (like the former PTC's).
Perhaps those 'minor' events will be best-of-7 all the way through, with the 'proper' rankers being at least best-of-9 in the early rounds. But, just guessing! http://www.snooker.org/res/index.asp?se ... template=2
What a busy season ahead though! The players are back at the end of THIS month!
I count Q-School as the start of the new season, rather than the end of this one - with the World Championship being the culmination of the campaign - so the new 2016/17 season starts a-week-tomorrow!
