Two snooker events start today.
The Sangsom 6 Reds Grand Prix is being held in Bangkok and features, among others, John Higgins, Shaun Murphy, Peter Ebdon, Mark Williams, Ken Doherty and Jimmy White.
Meanwhile in Beijing, the 110sport-promoted China International Challenge cues off with the likes of Stephen Hendry, Stephen Maguire, Mark Allen, Marco Fu and Ali Carter in action.
Both events provide the opportunity for players to make a few quid out of season and take the game to parts of the world where it is traditionally popular.
I will endeavour to keep across the scores but for the best coverage would point you to the ever reliable Global Snooker.
