2022 European Masters Draw and Revised WST Calendar

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.

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.

A few days agao WST had also published yet another revised calendar:

The updated provisional calendar for the 2021/22 season is now available.

Please note:

  • 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

  1. They must have more than 4 tables for the main event!

    Only Ding Junhui, Igor Figueiredo, Ng On Yee and Marco Fu are missing, which is quite expected. I assume Ding is concentrating on the UK Championship and World Championship, plus one of two other events that happen to be running whilst he is here.

    • They can comfortably have 8 tables in there.They used to have more when it ran as a PTC. Usually the main table, on the lowest level, with spectators on three sides, another one on ground level with also people on three sides, and “row” of tables at the rear of the venue with spectators on one side.

      • And if you sit in the front row of this “row” at the rear its as near by the table as in the Crucibe which is very nice and intense.
