Players angry at Shoot Out ranking move


Robertson called the decision “absolutely nuts”

World Snooker has added the one-frame Shoot Out tournament to its ranking events for next season in a move criticised by some players.

Matches at the tournament, which began in 2011, are played over one frame, lasting a maximum of 10 minutes.

The event features a shot clock of 15 seconds for the first five minutes and 10 seconds for the last five, with players often running around the table.

World number seven Mark Allen called it a “massive mockery of our sport”.
