  • 2016 China Championship

    It's no ranking event, but 200.000 pounds for the winner are probably more promising for the players anyway.
    On one hand it's pity that we have only 16 players in this tournament. On the other hand having just 16 of the best players in the world should guarantee for some good matches as well as the fact that the first two rounds are at least played Best-of-11. Semifinals Best-of-17 and the Final Best-of-19.

    The main draw is:
    Selby - McGill
    Allen - Walden
    J. Higgins - M. Williams
    Trump - Carter

    Murphy - Perry
    Ding - Fu
    Robertson - Holt
    Bingham - Liang

    So we pretty much have eight promising matches already in the first round.

          "The total prize money will be £650,000, with first round losers to receive £15,000, and the winner to bank £200,000.

          The winner will also earn a place in the Champion of Champions which runs the following week in Coventry.

          For the following three years, it will become a world ranking event, contested by 128 players. Total prize money for the 2017 edition will be £700,000 with the winner’s cheque at £150,000."

                  As its a Chinese event they should have found places for players like Zhao Xintong Zhou Yuelong and the Thai Thepchaiya Un Nooh.
                  McGill is there because of the Indian Open where it looks like quite a lot of players didn't enter.

                    The article (linked above) explains the invites for this introductory invitational event, to me it shouts - the Chinese sponsors/money-men got their choice to maximise ticket sales/TV coverage/etc. I would think ROS was asked but declined(?) as he was 9th or 10th.
