World Snooker Rankings 2012/13: Seedings Revision Three Round-Up

Little over a month since the season’s previous seedings revision, the UK Championship marks the third cut-off of the season, as Mark Selby replaces Judd Trump at the head of the rankings, while there have been various other changes up and down the list.

This seeding list will now be used for all of the remaining tournaments this season, with the exception of the 2013 World Championship.

As ever, I have also now produced the new projected seedings list, which will eventually determine the seedings for the Crucible. You may notice that the table is a slightly different format this time, as you can now highlight particular rows by hovering your cursor on the table, whilst you can now sort the players by different columns.

Unfortunately the sorting appears to have a mind of its own in places, but I will see what I can do about that!

A final point to note is that at this stage I have not yet added minimum points earned for the PTC Finals and will do so once the 32 players involved have been confirmed, following the Munich Open.

Closing In On The Cut: November 2012 (Updated)

Following my previous look at the rankings ahead of the upcoming second cut-off point, World Snooker have now issued a revised schedule of when points from the 2010/11 season will be deducted.

In particular, it has now been stated that points from the 2010 EPTC3 and EPTC4 events will now not be deducted before the cut-off, which has resulted in some important changes to how the projected seedings are shaping up.

Closing In On The Cut: November 2012

It does not feel like it has been that long since the season’s first seedings revision back in August, but with just two events (one for those unable to qualify for the International Championship), ahead of the crucial second cut-off, click below for my thoughts on the race for places at the Masters, UK Championship, German Masters and Shoot Out.

Note that a further update will be posted after the ET3 event, when the situation will become clearer…

EDIT (12/10/12): PLEASE NOTE THAT WORLD SNOOKER HAVE TODAY ISSUED A REVISED SCHEDULE OF WHEN POINTS FROM 2010/11 WILL BE REMOVED, MEANING THAT THIS ARTICLE IS NO LONGER ACCURATE. A REVISED POST WILL FOLLOW.
