The EASB Master Tour Last 16 will take place now over 1 day at the CueBall Derby on Saturday 30th April 2016. The event format will be as per the Masters Tour Events 1 to 6, i.e. 3 frame Round-Robin followed by a Last 8 Best of 5 KO, except the Final which will be best of 7.

The Final Ranking positions will be based on this Event and aside from this seasons Master Championship Champion and Runner-Up the remaining invites for next seasons World and European Masters Events will be selected only from these 16. Therefore….

The Winner is Ranked 1, The runner-up 2, semi-finalists 3 & 4, last 8 – 5 to 8, last 16 – 9 to 16. Equal postions (e.g.: 3 & 4, 5 to 8, 9 to 16) will then be seperated by the number of points awarded on the Tour.

The selection of the top 16 players from the three regions will, as is usual for EASB Last 16 Events, be based on a pro-rata of the number of entries (not number of players). All 6 Events count towards your total Ranking Points.

As of Event 5 here is the current allocation of places, the final list will include Event 6 so may change…

(** Number of Places divided by total entries times entries per region, places are then rounded high or low to reach 16 total).

Please note that this Last 16 Event is just one week after the Masters Tour 6 Event.
