This 14 year old Welsh lad knocked the world no. 8 (Kyren Wilson) out of the Shootout event today. There's another 14 year old Moldovan lad who became the youngest ever player to win a televised match at a ranking event yesterday. I know the Shootout isn't "proper snooker", but this stuff is great to see. Snooker has got a bright future. Let's not talk about the Chinese players.

I like the shootout 

Gives Al the lower ranked and these youngsters some TV exposure and experience

I like it too. I can understand why some snooker fans hate it though.

Sounds fucking awful.

Yeah, I've never been fully convinced it should be a ranking event. But as L/H White said, it does give the lower ranked/younger/female players some decent experience against the top pro's.
