SELT AND HIGGINS SHARE GROUP TWO LEAD AT BETVICTOR CHAMPIONSHIP LEAGUE SNOOKER

News January 6th, 2021

Matthew Selt and John Higgins sit top of Group Two at BetVictor Championship League Snooker with three wins apiece at Stadium MK, Milton Keynes.

Higgins, who lost the deciding frame of the Group One final to Zhou Yuelong on Tuesday evening, won all three of his matches on the first day of Group Two, beating Kyren Wilson 3-2 in the closing match of the day.

Selt also picked up three wins, beating Kyren Wilson, Graeme Dott and Gary Wilson, but has also suffered a 3-1 defeat to Scott Donaldson.

At the other end of the table Stuart Bingham faces a fight to remain in the competition having lost all three of his matches so far in the group. However, with Dott and Donaldson on two points and both Kyren and Gary Wilson on one, it’s all to play for when the group concludes on Thursday.

Live coverage is available on Matchroom.Live as well as on Freesports in the UK & Ireland, Zhibo.tv in China and on global betting platforms.

Each of the seven players in the group faces each other once in the round-robin stage, after which the top four players in the league table progress to Thursday evening’s play-offs. The eventual group champion will advance to March’s Winners’ Group.

The remaining players who finished in the top five during the league phase will continue to Group Three which begins on Friday, when three new players join the tournament. The bottom two players in each group are eliminated. All matches are best of five.

BetVictor Championship League Snooker sees 25 of the game’s elite players compete for their share of a total prize pot of up to £205,000.

Group Two continues at 12:30pm on Thursday. Live scoring can be found at www.worldsnooker.com. Group fixtures and results can be found at http://www.championshipleaguesnooker.co.uk/
