Snooker Rankings 2012/13: Points v Money II

While in the midst of the build up to the start of the 2013 World Championship I am yet to thoroughly analyse the provisional tournament calendar published for next season, as well as the implications of Barry Hearn’s players letter, there was one thing that stood out, namely the following paragraph:

“For those events which remain on the old system (The World Championship, Australian Open and Shanghai Masters), any player seeded through to an advanced stage, who loses their first match, will be paid in full but will only receive 50% of this money in their Official Rankings (i.e. similar to the current 50% rule on ranking points) and this system will be applied to all tournaments following the 2012 World Snooker Championship.

Back in February, I posted a comparison of ranking points and prize money earned to date this season, at that point up until the German Masters, kindly provided to me by fellow snooker fan @JoanneBallantyn.

I am pleased to say therefore that Joanne has helped to provide me with an updated list, comparing ranking points earned to date this season, against prize money earned, taking into account the qualification stated within Barry’s letter that seeded losers will only receive 50% money to their official ranking total.

For illustration purposes then, please click below to see what that means, all figures are approximate…
