The WPBSA has changed the ranking points tariff for next season.
The two Chinese events are now worth 7,000 points apiece to the winners, as opposed to 5,000 last season.
The World Championship is once again worth 10,000 points and the UK Championship 8,000.
Winning the Grand Prix will net 7,000 points - up 750 on last season.
The Welsh Open is now well and truly the poor relation on the circuit, worth 5,000 to the eventual champion.
As two ranking tournaments have been axed, it seems sensible to up the tariffs bearing in mind the rankings are worked out over two seasons.
