The Belgian Open is a new pro-am featuring many of snooker’s biggest names and takes place in Duffel from September 19-21.

It will be streamed live on CueSport TV, an excellent site which provides coverage of cue sports from the UK and beyond.

Among the players confirmed for the Belgian Open are Stephen Maguire, Shaun Murphy, Mark Selby, John Higgins, Neil Robertson, Graeme Dott, Mark Allen, Mark Williams, Ken Doherty, Matthew Stevens and John Parrott.

It costs £8 for the three days but, thanks to CueSport TV, this blog is giving away five passes for snooker fans to watch the action for FREE.

To stand a chance of winning, you will need to correctly answer the following three questions:

1) Which player won the first ranking tournament to be staged in Belgium, the 1992 European Open?
2) Which Belgian player once achieved a highest ranking of 53rd, the best of anyone from this country?
3) How old is Mark Selby?

DO NOT post your answers below. Send them instead to snookersceneblog@aol.com.

The closing date is next Monday, September 15.

Good luck!

the question about the 1992 European open is also very slippery. On different resources I found different answers. Globalsnooker says Player No.1 won this event in 1991, Player No.2 on 1993.
snooker.org says Player No.1 won it on 1992, wikipedia says - Player No.2.
about what's said in TSF also hav some uncertainty because of the brackets.
I don't know which source I should trust.

TSF is TheSnookerForum: www.thesnookerforum.com
and No I don't think Wild is back ther , not in the snooker threads at least.

I've never understood why people seem to believe everything they read on Wikipedia.

The player was ranked 53rd. I have the list in front of me.
