A shame this isn't televised. I remember watching the final on Eurosport last year, Ding fluking a ball in the final frame and clearing up, very much like Murphy fluking the final frame of the UK.

It has stayed unhealthily long in my memory as I'd had quite a large bet on Selby.

Lets be honest, Ronnie would be in every tournament if he wanted to be, he can pick and chooose what he wants to do.

The closing date for PIOS entries hasn't arrived yet but I'm assured Tony and Alex from Malta will be in the field.
We also have three players from Poland for the first time, as well as India, Thailand, China, UAE, Germany etc etc
It already looks set to be another high class international field and a brilliant season.
There will also be some of last season's relegated pros vieing to get their places back again.

I thought Ricky Walden might have got an invite this year to the Jiangsu event, seeing as he won the Shanghai Masters, but it looks as if it's only top 16 players?

People who have a sopcast player will be able to watch this.
