You're right. I was thinking of the other technique that you sometimes see at snooker where the cue stick is aimed at the very extreme edge of the ball, perhaps with part of the tip outside the edge of the ball. That's done with a forward stroke but is illegal at pool because of the explicit rule against intentional miscues.

But I would argue that the lift trick, as in the video clip, is also a kind of miscue since the tip slides on/slips off of the ball.

" 2018 is an important year for me personally as this is my 20th anniversary as a pro snooker player. Today, I would like to share an update with you. Since the beginning of the season, I have been having some problems with my left eye. I was told by the doctor that I’m suffering from retinal degeneration, laser surgery's been done so no worries! The doctor recommends a rest to avoid retinal detachment. Therefore I will not take part in any competition for the coming months. I regret to tell you that no interviews will be taken for now and I shall arrange an online session to take questions in the near future. Thank you for your support! "

" Well, the first thing I will say is that this is great news for amateur players who are serious about a career in the sport. There is potential for the very best to earn over £10,000 of the overall £100,000 pot as well as having playing opportunities at professional events.

The model is basically a carbon copy of what Shaun Murphy and I proposed, the only difference with our model is that I was asking for £100,000 in the form of a loan to get it off the ground. World Snooker can raise this themselves so it makes more sense for them to take the idea and run with it.

I hope that the wildcards are put to good use in encouraging junior players, it wouldn’t be fair if these were hand-picked old professionals who could just be dropped into any event and win it. Logistically, 64/72 player fields are manageable, I think we proposed a tour of 128 for financial reasons and in order to make the tour self-sufficient quicker and pay the loan back, but the number selected makes it more compact and would have been my preferred field.

The one thing of course that all the players on this tour will need to think about are expenses, particularly with some events seemingly heading all over Europe. Anyone routinely losing in the first and second rounds will need pretty deep pockets to compete in all the events. It is however good news that they will only be played over 2 days, which cuts down on the old PTC style expenses.

The one tweak that I would definitely make is to reward the next 8 or 16 players in an overall Order of Merit list outside of the top two who win the tour cards. It’s not unfeasible that there could be two runaway winners of the top two spots that begin to become clear after half the events have taken place, after seven or eight they could be home and dry. That would leave a bunch of players who are there or thereabouts but mathematically have no chance of the top spots being expected to play in the last couple of events. My experience as a tournament director would lead me to believe that the way of ensuring that these players commit to all events is to offer a further list which rewards them for their season efforts.

Whether this ends up being a final knockout event for a further tour card or even perhaps takes the form of a few free Q-School places for the following season I don’t know, but I think that’s something that they need to consider.

Overall however, this is a huge step in the right direction for amateur snooker and should be embraced by all. I really look forward to keeping a close eye on it next season. "
