Snooker Wuxi Classic Betting
The Wuxi Classic is the first tournament that involves the new qualifying system which sees all 128 professionals come in at the first round and there have been some early casualties among the top 16 players in the world.
Mark Selby was the first big name to suffer the consequences of the open draw in qualifying having lost out to Andrew Pagett and Shaun Murphy was not far behind him losing 5-1 to Andrew Davies.

The Wuxi Classic had largely been won by pretty established names in the past but Ricky Walden proved in 2012 that he can mix things up as he got to the final and saw off Stuart Bingham 10-4 to lift the trophy.
Format of the Snooker Wuxi Classic
The format of the snooker Wuxi Classic is exactly the same as tournaments in the United Kingdom that build up to a best of 17 frames final. Players play each other in initial knock out stages which whittle down the quarter-finals, semi-finals and ultimately the final.
The format of the snooker Wuxi Classic is clever because it is sticking with the traditional form of a growing tournament. It would have been easy for organisers to make the final the best of 25 and lengthen the tournament for television and media purposes.
Snooker in Asia
Snooker in Asia is taking off and is about to hit epic proportions with roughly 30 million people playing the game in China alone. This is a staggering amount that chairman of World Snooker Barry Hearn could only have dreamt of when he came in and took over the role.
Snooker Wuxi Classic betting will be a big market because of this growing interest in the sport in Asia. The Wuxi is by no means the biggest tournament held in Asia which is still the China Open but it's proof of snooker's popularity.
Snooker Wuxi Classic betting also opens up a number of possibilities because some talented Asian players have the chance to compete against the best players from mainland Europe. There are thousands of potential Asian Judd Trumps in the world waiting to explode.
Snooker in Asia will explode over the next two to three years. At the moment there are only a handful of Asian players playing on the professional circuit. These players are led by the likes of Ding and Marco Fu who have been successful in various ranking events.
The reason snooker in Asia is only going to get better is due to the fact that the sport is so accessible. There are more snooker tables and clubs in China than anywhere else in the world which encourages Asian players from all backgrounds to have a go at the sport.
Snooker in Asia is also quite cheap because of this accessibility. Asian players do not have to pay anything like the same amount as players in the United Kingdom who want to hire a table for an hour. This makes tournaments such as the Wuxi Classic something to watch and become transfixed in because it is on Asia's doorstep.
