world seniors tour masters q2 upton park snooker centre 17/18th feb 2018
The entry list in Newbury was huge compared to other qualifiers and at one stage I thought I would need to close it early.
I have to limit entries to 64 to allow us to do this in two days, I know running an event on a Friday causes issues with work.
I know many of the players who are playing Newbury and waiting to see how they get on before entering Upton Park, I think that could be a mistake as the entries are already climbing and it could well be that it hits 64 BEFORE the newbury event.
Therefore I’d urge you to confirm your Upton park entry NOW and of course if you win in Newbury it gets refunded anyway.
The Winners in Newbury and Upton get to play in the Crucible.
Upton Park Snooker Centre, London E13 17th and 18th Feb (with 16th if required)
CLOSING DATE 2ND FEB OR WHEN IT HITS 64 ENTRIES.
Entry is £60, the prize fund is £14,000
