Format and rulesEdit

It was a one frame shoot out with a random draw. 64 players contested the tournament, which was shown on Sky, the first time that Sky has shown a World Snooker event live since 2004.[8][9] Frames were subject to a 20-second shot clock in the first five minutes and to a 15-second shot clock in the last 5 minutes. Clock started when the player had taken the cue ball. Players had to hit a cushion (with the cue ball OR the object ball) or pot a ball on every shot. Players lagged for who breaks and the winner decided. All foul resulted in ball in hand. After 10 minutes, the player with the most points won. If the score was tied, then a blue ball shoot out decided.[10][11]

DrawEdit

The draw for round 1 was made on 28 November 2010, just before the final of the Premier League. The draw for each round including the semi-finals was random, made just before the round began.[12][13] All times are GMT.
