    It is silly, it is not really snooker, it is about moving fast, time is a huge factor. Reminds me a bit of blitz or bullet chess, but it should not effect rankings on serious proper snooker just like chess has different ratings on different speeds of chess. But it might be popular to a lot of people and it can be exciting.

      They had those chances at the Shoot Out last year, and the year before, and the year before. The Shoot Out has been played for several years, it's only this year it's been a ranking event.

      People aren't upset that this event exists. They're saying an event with a ten minute mad-dash, that even Barry Hearn referred to as a lottery earlier in the week, should be able to affect a player's rank.

        The cheering for the 10 second shot clock, and cheering every colour seems completely forced and crap, I can almost see the guy standing there telling people when to cheer.

          Probably like one of those signs they have at tv recordings that lights up saying applause

          Then again its no more odd than players being applauded by the crowd after coming back from taking a slash, never did understand that one. Well done on avoiding the splashback possibly?

              Still some sad people moaning about Shoot out. Get a life - it's ONE event , it's fun and it gives players an extra chance to earn some cash



              Remember everyone. The World Snooker chairman thinks that if you care enough about snooker to have an opinion on it, you need to get a life.
              Well Bazza, you are the living proof that money can't buy you class.
              This is how you play darts ,MVG two nines in the same match!

                This event is so cheesy. I don't have a problem with it other than the fact it is ****.

                  Current ref is a fecking idiot. Playing to the crowd and getting in the players way as he does it.

                      This Bradley Jones is quite a fluent looking player. Was he a top 64 pro in the past?

                        If only Jimmy could bring this attitude and mental approach to the real tournaments I'm sure we'd be seeing far more of him.

                                He won? I'll mark that down in my diary.

                                Now how is it players can play in this tournament with noise and crowd movement, yet in the crucible if a mouse farts it "puts them off".
