Australian Goldfields Open 2014: Full Qualifying Draw Available


While today has seen five days of qualifying for the Wuxi Classic come to an end at the South West Snooker Academy (see all the results here), the snooker action resumes in Gloucester on Friday, with the start of the Australian Goldfields Open qualifiers.

While the draw for the event was released a couple of weeks ago, only now do we know which of the Q School top up players have taken up their entry for the competition, following a series of non-entries from the tour’s professional players.

In all, there are 25 amateurs involved, with Adam Bobat and one of Sanderson Lam and Joe Roberts already assured of progression through to the second round.

UPDATE: A few people have queried why two amateurs have been drawn to play each other and whether this is a mistake. I can confirm that the position is that as the draw for the tournament took place prior to the conclusion of this year’s Q School, it was the case that one of the potential Q School qualifiers was drawn as a seed, only to decide not to enter the competition.

This, combined with the fact that player was to draw a ‘top up’ player, has resulted in the all-amateur first round appearance and that the draw is therefore correct.
