Last 128 Friday 3rd- Saturday 4th of June at the Guild Hall, Preston
Main Stage Wednesday 22nd- Friday 24th of June at the Arena Riga, Latvia

Riga Masters will be Mark Selby's first Event as 2016 World Champion but unlike Bigger events the World Champion will have to slum it with everyone else in Preston Multi table set up.

Notable players that will be missing from the event include Ding Junhui, Shaun Murphy, Liang Wenbo, Ricky Walden, Barry Hawkins, Michael White, Jimmy White and almost inevitable Ronnie O'Sullivan.

But joining Mark Selby in the draw will be the Likes of Judd Trump, Neil Robertson, John Higgins, Kyren Wilson , Stuart Bingham and Allister Carter.

Who will get 2016/2017 season off to a flyer?

thats why Selby has been no 1 for so long the ability to win matches when hes behind and not on form

Fang Xiongman has recorded an excellent 4-2 win against Stephen Maguire - after losing 0-5 to the same player a few days ago! A good week for the debutant, qualifying in 2 of the 3 events.

Well, that and his ability to decide to enter lots of ranking events.

I see from my credit card statement that Liveworldsnooker.tv debited £28.49 from my account a few days ago. I'm paying for a service that no longer exists apparently. Have sent a furious email to them demanding refund. Lets see how long it takes till i get it back.

Interesting. .I just got my pro rated refund but only had the service for a month or so of a year subscription.

I did wonder whether that would happen to me actually. I don't trust World Snooker to do anything properly.

I paid on my last annual subscription of 29th May 2015, so it would be coming out around about now. I checked my online banking on the 2nd of June, end of the day and nothing had gone out. I'll check again this evening now it's happened to someone else.

These Events was seeded on European Tour Order of Merit now its random so its always been the case that potentially Neil Robertson could play Mark Selby etc at last 128 stage under both systems

Re: Kaspersky Riga Masters !!!!!

Postby SteveJJ

Rory McLeod gets a bye in to the next round as Zhang Anda isn't turning up.

I see this is listed as being on Eurosport Player. Fingers crossed it is!

The television coverage of this seems to start at 7pm each night on Eurosport.

Is that some kind of highlight show, or are they just televising a live evening match or something?

Good question.

And one for which, I do not know the answer.

Honestly I don't remember any ranking tournament ending on Friday since I watch snooker. I looked at Arena Riga website if there is any event during the weekend but no.
