The format isn’t  known yet.

Also I noticed than the Paul Hunter Classic is no more listed in the official Worldsnooker Prize Money Schedule. From memory, the TOTAL money available for the event was £17500 which is really not much at all. I’m not sure what it means status wise that the event is no more on the list. It is still on the calendar though.
