We are today delighted to announce that the WPBSA has granted an invitation to this year’s Betfred World Championship in Sheffield for the player who is ranked number 1 on the ROKiT World seniors ranking list following the conclusion of this weekend’s qualifying event in Leeds.

The invitation looks to be a straight fight between Jonathan Bagley from Leeds and Patrick Wallace from Dungannon in Northern Ireland. Both have held the number 1 spot this season.

Taking into account ranking points to be removed at this event, Bagley heads to Leeds with a three-point lead and with their current seeding meaning that they can’t meet until the final this weekend, it’s likely the race will be decided on how they perform against the other players.
