The whole things feels a bit mediocre like a lot of Chinese events. The 20-24 team format can only work in London or Birmingham where there are a lot of different nationalities living. For China it would be better with 8-12 teams. Plus the time of year is all wrong. The Snooker season shouldn't really start until late July/early August.
Snooker season starts when organizers and promoters want them to start theres too much logistical difficulties with putting on tournaments.
you have to have space in the calender, venue Availability etc etc and as for the Aussie Open you want it played during Aussie Winter.
