WPBSA Chairman Jason Ferguson said: “The WPBSA has a network of international partners to monitor such issues. We take any potential breach of the Members Betting Rules very seriously. Any player found guilty of such a breach is likely to be banned for life from snooker. Protecting the integrity of the sport of snooker is of paramount importance”.
