The 2021 Scottish Open starts today

The 2021 Scottish Open just got underway at the time of writing…

It’s held in Llandudno, in Wales, because the Scottish venue no longer accepts events sponsored by bookies. In my views it’s the righ move, but it might just well signal the start of a sponsoring nightmare for snooker. Anyway…

Mark Williams and Neil Robertson have withdrawn 

Robertson And Williams Withdraw

Neil Robertson and Mark Williams have pulled out of the BetVictor Scottish Open, which starts on Monday.

Robertson has withdrawn for medical reasons having been diagnosed with Pulsatile Tinnitus. He has been replaced in the draw by Bai Langning, who will face Ben Hancorn in the first round on Monday evening in Llandudno.

Williams has withdrawn for personal reasons and been replaced by James Cahill, who will be up against Ben Woollaston in the first round on Monday morning.

The tournament at Venue Cymru runs until December 12th.


Today will see most of the top 16 in action as the held-over matches will be played
