All three of these carry WPA points.
Both Turning Stones, and Derby City also carry WPA partial points events.

Thanks for that. Guessing they must be WPA Tier 3.

I thought fargo was going to be used 100% for the seeding! Some brackets are full of top rank fargo players and others have hardly any!!!

No one anywhere ever said Fargo would be used for all seeding. Iím actually surprised and happy it was used at all.

This is WPA event and WPA points are far and away the most used criteria.

THx, I'll go hunting for it. Which page. Also, it's still winner breaks/option.

Just looks really bad!!!!

if you believe in Fargo then having one bracket filled with top players is far from fair

Iím on mobile now but I think the player contract was near the players list. Itís definitely worth reading imo. I hope Matchroom keeps to it, and comes down with an iron fist on rule violations imo.

Wow.. No smoking during breaks. Means those smokers may suffer

7.5 Player Breaks
a) Double Elimination Stage of the Event Ė Players are entitled to a maximum of two toilet breaks per match, per player. Breaks are to be taken at the end of racks only and for a maximum of four minutes long. Under no circumstances are Playerís allowed to smoke in this break or the match.
b) Last 16 Stage of the Event Ė Players are entitled to take a break in the television commercial breaks only and must notify the referee when doing so. Breaks are not allowed to be longer than five minutes long. Under no circumstances are Playerís allowed to smoke in this break or the match.
c) Should any Player breach the allocated break time in both stages of the Event, one rack will be deducted upon late arrival, with a further rack for every two minutes after that.
d) Should any Player be found smoking in their match or allocated break time, a warning shall be issued by a Tournament Director and or Promoter; after one warning the Player will then forfeit their match which is at the sole discretion of the Promoter.



The detailed rules of play are covered i Appendix 1 to 4

John Barton would play Wu Jiaqing in a 2nd round tilt, if JB can win his first match.


(Nick van den Berg) is the most overrated player on the planet. Iíll bet against him until Iím bust. - iusedtoberich

I really like the “must use forceful break “ rule. This isn’t a court of law where just because 3 balls don’t pass the headstring you have fouled, regardless of the kisses and whatnot that can make a twenty some mph break still not land 3 balls, or combo of behind the string.

Just hit them hard.
