International Championship 2014: Draw and Format Released


Next week sees the start of the qualifiers for this season’s International Championship and following the publication of the updated world rankings this morning, World Snooker have now published both the draw and format for the tournament, which are accessible from their website.

At first glance, the big hitters such as defending champion Ding Junhui, Mark Selby, Neil Robertson and Ronnie O’Sullivan are all involved, while I notice that Jimmy White is seeded inside the top 64, meaning that someone above him (EDIT: Ali Carter, for obvious reason), has decided not to enter the tournament.

The qualifiers take place from next Monday at the new regular venue of the Barnsley Metrodome.
