WST has today published the draw for the 2022 European Masters. The tournament will be played in the Atadhalle Fürth, the home of the, now defunct, Paul Hunter Classic. The qualifiers – just one round – will be played right after the German Masters qualifiers currently in progress.
BetVictor European Masters Qualifiers Draw
The draw and format for the qualifying round of the BetVictor European Masters has been made.
The qualifying round runs from October 27-31 at Chase Leisure Centre in Cannock. There is no access for fans but the action will be available to watch live online, with the list of broadcasters to follow.
All players need to win one match to make it through to the final stages in Furth, Germany in February 2022.
Note that the following round one matches have been held over to the final stages in Germany:
Mark Selby v Matthew Selt
Neil Robertson v Lei Peifan
Ronnie O’Sullivan v Nigel Bond
Judd Trump v Michael Judge
I’m happy to see Ronnie in the draw, and it’s good as well that his match is held-over.
To be honnest, Ronnie looked very edgy to me last week in Belfast. My feeling – and nothing else than just my feeling – was that he wasn’t in the best place mentally; he’s never been the most stable person. When that happens, he’s prone to impulsive decisions, and it’s usually not great.
The updated provisional calendar for the 2021/22 season is now available.
- The qualifier dates originally set in November have been removed, and the dates for Championship League Snooker will be released shortly.
- The dates for the 2022 Turkish Masters are now March 7-13, with a potential ranking event the following week from March 14-20.
- In a change to previous seasons, players will receive both prize money and ranking points when losing in round one of any Cazoo Series event. This is conditional on players both competing and completing their round one match.
The Cazoo Series starts with the Cazoo World Grand Prix from December 13 to 19 in Coventry
