|One Frame Shoot-Out
An event first held in
September 1990 and involving most of the
professionals in which all matches except the final were decided over a
single frame. The final itself was played over best-of-three frames.
This event was not repreated in its origianl format but was revived in
2011 withseveral new inovations.
The new format included a maximum time
of 10 minutes per frame with a 20 second shot-clock for the first five
minutes reducing to 15 seconds for the last five minutes. The cue ball
or object ball must strike a cushion if a pot is not achieved and after
any foul the opposing player can place the cue ball anywhere on the
table. The first event under the new format was held at the Circus
Arena in Blackpool. There was a random draw for each round.
Despite the fact that all the top players were involved it was to
players from outside the top 32 who contested the final with 45
year-old Nigel Bond taking the top prize
