The draw for the 2 Asia-Oceania Q-school events was made and shared on Facebook in the very early hours (in Europe) this morning.
Snooker.org has worked out the draws for you!
Here they are:
Event 1: 1-7 June 2022
Event 2: 9-16 June 2022
Luo Honghao seems to be the only Chinese player in the draw. That surprises me a bit but I can understand why he would choose to enter these events rather than the UK ones. The field may not be as strong and it may look like a better chance to go through.
I’m happily surprised by the turn-up: 69 players is not bad at all considering the recent years’ circumstances and the fact that it’s held for the first time.
Those who have been following snooker for some years will recognise a few names in that draw most notably Dechawat Poomjaeng … but also Thanawat Thirapongpaiboon, Thor Chuan Leong, Amir Sarkosh and Hamza Akbar.
