This year, the series had been changed into a "timeframe" system which players would play at least one or two frames of snooker against the clock (each show was at least 20 minutes), the final being longer.

Broadcasts were shown on Mondays and Wednesdays and the series started at 15:00 on Monday 7 September 1992.[1] Eammon Holmes presented the series and Ted Lowe and Willie Thorne were the commentators with John Williams as referee.

Players in this year's series were the top 16 ranked players for the 1992-93 season except the No1 player Stephen Hendry and Darren Morgan. Replacing them were the first ever woman to play in series, Allison Fisher and the professional debut of the Junior Pot Black champion Ronnie O'Sullivan who beat defending Pot Black champion Steve Davis in the first show of the series. The final was won by Neal Foulds beating debutant James Wattana [2]
