One Frame Shoot-Out
Invitation Event


Brief History
 
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
