Yan Bingtao suspended as well … 12.12.2022

It’s getting even worse … what happened to the sport we love??? 😫

Here is the announcement …

WPBSA Statement – December 12th, 2022

Monday 12 Dec 2022 11:43AM

WPBSA Chairman Jason Ferguson has taken the decision to suspend Yan Bingtao from attending or competing on the World Snooker Tour with immediate effect.

This decision is part of an ongoing investigation into allegations of manipulating the outcome of matches for betting purposes in breach of the WPBSA Conduct Regulations.

The suspension will remain in place until the conclusion of the investigation or any subsequent charges that may or may not be brought. Yan Bingtao has the right to appeal this decision.

No further comment will be made except in the event of any significant further developments.

This is nightmare. Snooker is struggling enough without having to deal with those suspicions, And this one really surprises me. Why? What’s going on?

  1. -_-);

    Personally pity for them, but if they did such a thing, they deserve their punishment.

    Furthermore, it is also not legal fixing matches in UK…

    Prosecutors need to do something… the evidence is stronger than before(record in apps).
    (why not any actions before? It was quite difficult to prove – the suspect can simply deny, deny and deny.
    The standard of successful prosecution is definitely stricter(stronger proof) than WPBSA… and influence of barristers.)

    If they would have been sentenced(>1 year) in the future, it is they will have a longer suspension. (due to possible visa problems not WPBSA)
