64 players from the qualifiers at The Crucible Sports Bar and Club, Newbury this month competed to roll onto the elite 8 man event to be hosted in Belfast on March 2/3rd 2019.
It was a strong field of ex-pros and top amateurs, but it was the usual suspect, Jonathan Bagley, a regular on the World Seniors tour, who managed to land a spot in the top 8, who will compete for a winner takes all 20K cheque in northern Ireland.
Bagley will come up against the Whirlwind of London town Jimmy White in the round 1/quarter finals with a chance of playing the 7-times World Champion the amazing Stephen Hendry in the last four. Hendry will face the 1986 World Champion and now Eurosport commentator Joe Johnson.
Another regular qualifier onto the main Seniors spotlight Patrick Wallace will play the Irish 1997 World Champion Ken Doherty.
The World Seniors is a great chance to see some of the Legends of yesteryear unpack their cues and see them play against over 40 qualifier amateurs who get to play their idols in a dream venue befitting to snooker.
In January, fans saw Jimmy White, still competing on the main tour, roll back the years winning the Irish Senior Masters in Goffs, and fans can enjoy some thrilling six reds with the Legends at the Waterfront in Belfast.
