Championship League Snooker – Group Six

All of the players today are of course chasing the lucrative prize of a place in next year's Premier League which awaits the winner of the winners' group.

SIX-TIME World Champion Steve Davis makes his first appearance in the Championship League Snooker today.

Davis joins the competition in Group Six and is one of four former Crucible winners to be among the seven.

The others are John Higgins, Ken Doherty and Graeme Dott in what promises to be a hotly-contested group.

Joe Swail, runner-up at last month's Welsh Open is also included in the line-up as are Jamie Cope, ranked 19th in the official rankings, and two-time World Championship finalist Matthew Stevens.

Held at Crondon Park Golf Club in Essex, each group is played over two days of fast and furious snooker, with each match the best of four frames - which, interestingly, brings the draw into play. Each player will play the others once; the top four in the table will go into the best-of-five semi-finals, where the eventual winner progresses to the winners' group, to be held 25-26 March. The losing finalist, two losing semi-finalists and the player ranked fifth all get another chance in the next group, where they're joined by three new professionals.
