900 Snooker – The Grand Finalists Revealed…

WEEK EIGHT of the fast and furious Snooker Legends 900 came to a close on Wednesday as the eight Grand Finalists have been revealed.

After more than eight weeks of incredible drama in what has been a roller-coaster of pure entertainment, fun, and surprises, ends in under two weeks’ time with one lucky winner lifting the inaugural Snooker Legends 900 Amateur Trophy in Reading.

Ben Hancorn, the final finalist who got through on Wednesday, wrote on Facebook:

“Buzzing to get to grand final night 23rd November. Also glad to avoid my brother-in-law Andrew Norman in the draw. Gutted there had to be a runner-up and Harvey Chandler is a true gent!! Thanks to #snookerlegends #900series and all the staff for yet again a great tournament. Now time for sleep 😴

The weeks have whizzed by with every Wednesday feeling like a Monday, as the tournament kicked off with qualifiers way back in September when nobody really knew what was in store for this innovative idea from Snooker Legends and Jason Francis.

He has transformed the appearance of the amateur game, making it fun, entertaining, and accessible for all players to apply and compete and for players to receive exposure on TV and gain that valuable experience.

For amateur snooker, the world is its Oyster now.

There’s talk of a Junior Series, a Women’s Series, and even a Pro Series.

With £6,000 per week in prize money, “The 900” is the biggest thing to happen on Tv for Amateur Snooker in years.

It will see 25 nights of live snooker on Sporty Stuff TV broadcast Monday to Wednesday every night.

The eight weekly winners will then contest the Grand Final on November 16 in a one-off special.

All events will be staged in the Stephen Hendry Matchroom at the Crucible Club in Reading with a total prize fund in excess of £50,000.

The 900 also adds some spicey entertainment to it. Lee Richardson continues to DAZZLE with those shirt combos.

This is exactly what amateur snooker has needed. An injection of fun, entertainment, and, of course, quality snooker drama…
