The Draw for the 2023 World Seniors Snooker Championship is out

And here it is

The only spot still to be filled is the “Golden Ticket” Winner. The Golden Ticket event will be played over the coming week-end in Reading, and you will be able to follow the event and find all results here.

We have some very interesting match-ups but the match that caught my eye is

Stephen Hendry v Darren Morgan

Those two have played each other 16 times during their professional careers, Hendry prevailing 15 times. Darren’s only win over Stephen came at the 1990 British Open. Their first professional match dates back to 1988 at the New Zealand Masters. Their last professional match was played at the Crucible: Stephen beat Darren by 13-10 in the quarter-finals of the 1997 World Snooker Championship. That said, Darren, unlike Stephan has continued to play competitively on a regular basis in recent years, and still plays at a very high level. I have to make Darren favourite here.

I’m also very happy to see Mark Davis in the draw. After the heartbreaking way he lost his tour card only last week, this is something he can look forward to and, in my opinion, he’s a very serious contender for the title.

Also intriguing is the match between Ken Doherty and Alfie Burden. Although they have both played on the main tour for a very long time they have only met each other four times, Ken prevailing three times. Their first encounter dates back to the 1999 British Open. Alfie’s only win came at the 2015 Shoot Out which is also the last time they played each other.
