  • I thought it was shite.

    The 20 second shot rule was about the only decent thing it had going for it.

    Each to their own, though..
  • I liked it, the crowd was pretty rowdy too which some of the players embraced, others didn't.
  • Didn't watch it but saw the rules. Gimmicky nonsense.
  • What next 20/20 cricket?
  • snooker would die on it's arse without Barry Hearn and these new tournaments / formats
  • interesting, i expect it to get boring v quick. the rules need tweeking, but dont ask me what.
  • Reminded me of Big Break.
  • another new tournament starts tonight, one frame shoot out (or max 10 mins duration with whoever is in front at the time)

    20 sec shot clock for first 5 mins then 15 sec for final 5

    pick the white and place anywhere in the event of a foul

    a ball must hit a cushion every shot (except pots)

    Ronnie O'Sullivan is 14/1 to win it, bit of a lottery really to be honest, 64 players in it.

    Live on Sky
  • It sounds like modern life.

    How about trying to sing VFR in under 20 seconds?
  • cricket, boxing, darts and now snooker have been getting the shortened makeover in recent years.

    How long before some new format is introduced to a football cup competition ?

  • You may as well do so to the JPT because it's a stupid competition anyway.

    How about 5 minutes each way and then in the event of a draw the players have to play soggy biscuit to decide the winner.
  • just watched the drago v mcleod game. brilliant entertainment.

    its a bit of fun and something different. enjoyed it.
  • Anyone know where its being held? Don't have sky sports but would watch it live in future, got to give it a chance having never seen it.

    Blackpool, I think.
  • Snookers attempt to win over a lot of the dart audience I guess, watched bits of it, seemed alright.
  • harmless fun, plenty of crowd banter and the players seem to be enjoying it.
  • bet peter ebdon enjoys it
  • not power snooker so nice bump lol

    btw im loving the snooker shootout its quality something different
  • I watched a fair bit of the snooker shootout yesterday and thought it was very entertaining. I was wondering about trying to organise a tournament at my club (average age: 80) - could bring some much needed excitement to the place!

    I have always thought it would be great to have a 5 a side competition amongst the pro teams.
