Monday 1st ~ Sunday 7th of March at The Marshal Arena, Milton Keynes

Its taken an absalute age to come but 9 years since he retired Stephen Hendry will be making his proffesional return in this event playing Matthew Selt a good friend of his in his opening Match.

All members of the top 16 will be in "Gibraltar" apart from Stephen Maguire who wont play again until he walks out at The Crucible Theatre in April for the World Championship.

Up for grabs this week apart from this title is the BetVictor Series and there's 3 players in with a shout Odds on favourite Judd Trump, Mark Selby who needs to reach the final and Jordan Brown who needs to win the title.

Kyren's opponent :

'Kuldesh Johal is an English former professional snooker player. He competed on the main tour during the 2008/2009 and 2010/2011 seasons. He is notorious for his unusually massive cue.'

Hoping to get a look at this...:shock:

Stephen Hendry's form is unknown.


Nobody knows how he will play not even him.

He says he is hitting the ball better than he was when he retired, but he says that means nothing if you cant do it under pressure.

Is he flying in practice ?

Stephen Hendry vs Matthew Selt is at 7pm Tuesday 2nd March so that surely will be the televised match.

If Jimmy's anything to go by, let's hope not!

Wrong thread but I’m leaving it because I was right.

Looking forward to watching Hendry play again!

Comebacks like this aren't really a thing in snooker as players usually go on until they really fall hard off the cliff with no coming back after that.

Even though he has only won it once and didn't play it in 2019? The Northern Ireland Open would be considered his favourite event as he has won it the last 3 times.

If he gets to the final at least he can only lose by four frames :-(

He is according to snooker.org.

Surely they wouldn’t squander the chance to get probably more casuals tuning in than ever before?

There's also a good chance he could go out first round. So why not.

Should have rigged the draw then. His opponent will have them switching off in droves :irk:
