Local News (Flintshire & Denbighshire)



***Online news update****
We were hopeful that the Grosvenor mobile app would be released by now so those that can only play on mobile devices (and macs ) would be able to join in for the remainder of the Super League season that we started back in March. Unfortunately the mobile app hasn't happened.
Therefore after careful consideration and discussion myself and Rich have decided to postpone the restart of the league to give Grosvenor more time to sort it out. We really hope that 4 weeks will be enough.
********4 Week Mini Season********
So in the meantime we have decided to do a 4 week season starting tomorrow night with at least £1250 worth of prizes
We will put on a final after the 4 weeks and those eligible will play for cash and there will be other prizes dependant on total numbers that play (2021 UK Final seats plus different cash prizes if nightly numbers support it)
All results will be entered into the website and there will be 3 separate leagues created.
One for the pub structure games (Monday, Saturday & Sunday),
another for online structure games (Tuesday, Wednesday & Friday) meaning that each will have 12 games making them more competitive over the 4 week period and a third league which will be for the Omaha on a Thursday night with 4 results making up the league.
Normal qualification to the final will apply i.e. the top 25% of each league (up to a maximum of 25) or if you play at least 10 times over the 4 week period.
We both hope that you will continue to support the on-going online games





All games start at 8pm (Late Reg 30 mins)


Sunday Bounty Hunter freezeout £13 with £5 bounties (online structure 3k/10 mins)

Monday £8 freezeout (online structure 3k/10 mins)

Tuesday 6 max £8 freezeout (live structure 10k/15 mins)

84 Players turned up to Grosvenor Casino, Bolton on Sunday Feb 10th for the Lancashire, Merseyside, Flintshire and Denbighshire Regional finals, hoping to bag themselves a share of the £2500 guaranteed prizepool and the 13 national seats on offer.

After around 8 hours the players got down to the final table with Chris Jones and Margaret Orgill making their second consecutive final table appearance after their appearance at the Top 5 bonus tournament last month.

Hendry's Snooker Club in Preston had a fantastic day with 4 players down to the last 16 whilst all 3 regions were all well represented, and Hendry's player Josh Rayworth took down the tournament, winning his seat to both the National Finals and UK Final in early 2020, ahead of Derek Parker of the White Bear in Mancot in second

Well played to all finalists and players during the day
