As you can see from the above links, the most recent development sees Mooney allegedly naming both Graeme Dott and Mark Selby as potential players who could be involved in match-fixing during the World Series events. It is interesting to note that Mooney is wearing a different shirt to the previous video, suggesting that there were at least two meetings held between the parties.

Also it should be made clear that while the potential involvement of Dott and Selby was discussed by Mooney in the video, there is absolutely no suggestion that the two players were aware of or agreed to any deal to fix matches.
