Snooker - Shoot Out

New to the tour in 2011, this began as a 64-player event with all matches played over just one frame. Each match lasts no longer than 10 minutes, players lag for choice of break-off, there's a maximum of 20 seconds per shot (once the cue ball comes to rest) for the first five minutes and then 10 seconds for the second five mnutes. Players must pot a ball or make the cue or object ball hit a cushion on each shot, failure to do so means their opponent being able to place the white wherever he desires for his next shot. The venue from 2011-2015 was the Circus Arena in Blackpool. In 2016 it was staged at the Hexagon in Reading.
From 2017, when the Colosseum in Watford became its home, the Shoot-Out became a fully-fledged ranking tournament.
