GB9 World Pool Masters Qualifier rankings update

We recently announced that the GB9 results (best 3 from 5 events) will be used to determine one of the four UK players to participate in the 2013 World Pool Masters. Following the recent Northern Masters event, the rankings for this qualifier spot have been updated.  There is no change at the top with Mark Gray retaining the No.1 spot.  2nd and 3rd swap places between Imran Majid and Phil Burford, with Karl Boyes knocking Craig Osborne out of the current top 4 after his superb win at last weekend’s event.  With only one event left to determine which four players will play-off for the Master’s spot, there is everything to play for!

1 (1) Mark Gray
2 (3) Imran Majid
3 (2) Phil Burford
4 (-) Karl Boyes
The five events that will count towards the rankings are:
GB9 British Grand Prix - November 9-11 2012
GB9 Midlands Classic - February 22-24 2013
GB9 Paul Medati Trophy - April 12-14 2013
GB9 Northern Masters - June 7-9 2013
GB9 Southern Masters - August 9-11 2013
The top four players in this ranking will contest semi-finals and then a final (format to be determined) to be played immediately after the finish of the GB9 Southern Masters on August 11th. The winner will receive a spot in the 2013 World Pool Masters.
This will be the 21st annual running of the Masters; one of pool’s longest running invitational events and the 12th time it will have taken place in the UK. Previous home winners have been Daryl Peach (1995), Raj Hundal (2005) and Darren Appleton in 2009.
