—————————————————————————————————————————————–

I have put the names of the senior players currently competing on the Main Tour in orange. As you can see there are a few of them, and the only one who lost so far is Barry Pinches who was beaten by another main tour player, Nigel Bond.

Amongst the name that caught my eye, are Andrew Norman and Mukesh Parmar.

Andrew was on the main tour for a few seasons, and was one of the “pilars” of the SWSA.  Everyone knowing Andrew, knows that he’s a lovely person. Andrew felt that playing on the main tour, and all the traveling it implied, was putting too much pressure on his family life. He missed the competition though, and had told me that he would get on the seniors tour as soon as he would turn 40, and here he is!

Mukesh Parmar was Mark Selby’s manager and friend for many, many years. I never knew that he was a player himself.
