WST is pleased to confirm that, following consultation with both the WPBSA, and the WPBSA Players Board, this season players will receive both prize money and their ranking points where they lose in round one of any Cazoo Series event.
This is a change from the previous position where players would only receive the prize money.
This is conditional on players both competing and completing their round one match. Players unable to complete their match for any reason will not receive the associated ranking points.
For the avoidance of doubt the Cazoo Series includes all of the following events: Cazoo World Grand Prix, Cazoo Players Championship and Cazoo Tour Championship.
