Chris Small, the 2002 LG Cup champion and one time world no.12, has abandoned his long battle to receive money from the WPBSA benevolent fund.
Chris retired from the professional game three years ago because of a debilitating disease of the spine, ankylosing spondalytis.
Despite this, he has not received a single penny from the benevolent fund - which was set up to help players in this very position.
The full story appears here in tonight's Edinburgh Evening News.
It says the WPBSA wanted him to provide a medical certificate proving his illness, which would have cost him £250 - a not insignificant sum for someone relying on state benefits.
This begs the question: did they think that despite quitting snooker and spending long periods of time in a wheelchair he was somehow putting it on?
