      Next year the real world championship will be reduced to best of 5s with a shot clock and time-outs, because "People buying tickets want to see a result on the day."

          Anyone else going to this? I've just booked for the Saturday as the venue is only about a 20 minute drive away. Quite happy with the field they've assembled, particularly as it includes some of my old faves in action, and also with the decision to increase the age range from 40 to 45 as it was ridiculous having the likes of Ebdon, Doherty and Hendry involved in these events previously. One major disappointment is the exclusion of Kirk Stevens who I thought would be a certaintly after taking part in the Legends recently to a pretty decent standard apparently. Hope its not a result of him being back on the sauce again. Had expected Mike Hallett to be included as well given that he's still competing reasonably in the PTC's. Would also have been nice to see Reardon, Thorne, Griffiths, Meo and Virgo, though wasn't really expecting any of them given that none of them have played competitively in some time. Anyone know when the qualifying event is taking place and who is involved? Maybe an opportunity for the likes of Hallett, Dean Reynolds, Steve James, Darren Morgan and David Taylor to join their fellow oldies.
