Australian Goldfields Open 2014: Draw Available


Hot on the heels of the draw for the Wuxi Classic, World Snooker have now released the draw for the Australian Goldfields Open, the qualifiers for which get underway on 30th May 2014 in Gloucester.

One of the few remaining events to be played under the ‘old’ system, with the top 16 seeded through to the venue, the draw for the venue stages can be found here, while the qualifying draw is available here.

As is to be expected, there are a few notable omissions from the draw, Mark Selby, Ding Junhui, Ronnie O’Sullivan, Ali Carter and reigning champion Marco Fu, allowing the likes of Xiao Guodong to be seeded through to the venue.

The venue stages in Bendigo get underway on 30th June 2014 and unlike last year, will be televised by Eurosport this season.

Wuxi Classic 2014: Tournament Draw Now Available


So it begins again. Less than a couple of weeks after Mark Selby’s Crucible triumph, the draw is now available for the first event of the new season, the 2014 Wuxi Classic, which you can view here at snookerorg.

While there are a few notable absentees, Ronnie O’Sullivan, Mark Allen, Mark Davis and Pankaj Advani from the top 64 at first glance, otherwise there is a strong field as Neil Robertson looks to defend the title that he won 12 months ago.

It is unclear as to whether any of the three ‘invitations’ will be taking part (eg Stephen Hendry, Steve Davis or James Wattana), it would appear as though the spaces will be there should they want them, otherwise the places will be awarded to the best performing players at the ongoing Q School events.
