Tuesday 30th of August - Friday 2nd of September at the Barnsley Metrodome

Most Ranking events these days has the flat 128 draw but the Shanghai Masters is different with 112 players both professionals and Amateurs trying to earn a place in the Main Draw where the top 16 seeds are waiting.

Among the seeds is 5 times World Champion Ronnie O'Sullivan seeded 11th this year.

But before then its qualifying.

In Round 1 Chinese players trying to qualify are Zhang Anda, Chen Zhe, Zhao Xintong, Wang Yuchen, Fang Xiongman, Cao Yupeng, Yan Bingtao, Zhang Yong and Mei Xiwen also in this round Snooker legends James Wattana and Jimmy White.

Round 2 and Zhou Yelong, Xiao Guodong, Li Hang, Yu Delu and Tian Pengfei enters the fray as will be 1997 World Champion Ken Doherty and twice Crucible Runner up Welshman Matthew Stevens.

And in Round 3 winners in Round 2 will play each other for a place in Round 4 (final qualifying round) against the likes of Peter Ebdon, Stephen Maguire, Martin Gould, Graeme Dott and China's Liang Wenbo for a place in Shanghai.

Bit of a surprising scoreline as Scott Donaldson leads John Astley whos had a great start to the season 3-0 and Jimmy White 2-0 down to Daniel Wells guess it did not help Jimmy having to travel yesterday from Germany but that's professional sport you need stamina as well as skill.

Zhang Anda completes a 5-0 win over Aditya Mehta .


it seems the wheels has come off Aditya career in the last few years after reaching the final of the Indian Open in 2013.

Jimmy reverting to type?! Crashes out 5-2 to Daniel Wells at the first hurdle. No money earned from this, so will probably fall further from his current ranking of 91.

Jimmy will never find consistency again so no point hoping.

Sam Craigie in his second spell on tour having played one season in 2011/2012 is finding his feet currently he is ranked 86 but going in the right direction

Darryl Hill, on the other hand, is a huge disappointment.

He is now 0-4 down to Ian Preece and he fails again to prove himself competetive in the high level.

Happy to see Thor and Akbar progressing.

Not one for putting players down, but wasn't Darryl Hill awarded the 'Rookie Of The Year' award last season?

He won only 3 matches!

My point is World Snooker should have done a 'breakthrough of the year' award...and should have gone to Kyren Wilson for his Shanghai win.

Left the King vs Akbar match at 2-4 with the hope that the Pakistani will finish the job, but I find out now that King won 5-4 by winning two of the last three frames in the last black. Akbar is a tough match player but there's still something missing from his game to beat experienced opponents...

On the other hand, Thor Chuan Leong from Malaysia beat Oli Lines 5-4 with two century breaks (while he had only one his first two years as professional). This guy shows that he's got the talent to stay on the tour for years.

Akbar had his chances but missed some crucial shots. Was a bit strange that King kept moaning after bad shots.
Good to see Thor winning, also another Asian champion won yesterday Nook Kritsanut on his pro debut.

Another player who lost a good lead was Robin Hull. Seemingly cruising to an impressive win against Zhang Anda, leading 4-1, he lost the last 4 frames to crash out 4-5...

Another loss from 4-1 up as Akani couldn't withstand Rod Lawler's comeback in an almost 7 hour match.
Un-Nooh also lost earlier to an in-form Duffy.

Impressive start for the Thai youngster, I logged in just to write about it. And he made 4 half-century breaks.

Ken Doherty struggles against Gareth Allen and maybe this year will be the last in the tour -although it's quite sure that, Like Jimmy White, he will get a wild card.

If I remember correctly, this player made a splash in the 6 Reds last year?

Thor's defeat to Davison was a dissapointment, indeed...

Meanwhile, Ian Preece is ready for another great victory, as he leads 4-0 Chris Wakelin. To be honest, I don't remember this player back in the years he was a pro again and would like to see him playing now.

Rory McLeod recovered from 0-4 to level the match against Hammad Miah, but it was Miah who won at the decider and will fight for a place at Shanghai against Matt Selt.

I caught the last frame of Stevens vs O'Donell match. Some good pots from Matthew, I hope that he can be competitive against Martin Gould tomorrow (it's one of the matches that will be available on ES Player).
