Introducing the Great Blog Bet Pot…..

Filed under: snookerbacker @ 8:01 am

Some of you may remember that one of the December Giveaway prizes went to the best idea for use of a free bet. Black Whippet won it and the result is the Great Blog Bet Pot (try saying that after a few shandys at the Crucible). There is even a chance for you to ‘buy in’ to the idea for as little as Five English Pounds. It could pave the way to untold riches for blog followers……click here to see what I am on about. Let the fun begin!

Championship League Group 1 Match Schedule

Filed under: snookerbacker @ 7:23 am

A packed fortnight starts here.

Good Morning Snooker Fans. This morning sees the start of a bumper two weeks of snooker with the first of the groups for the Championship League getting under way at 10.30 UK Time.

We start with a repeat of the UK Final between Higgins and Williams on Table 1 while Mark Selby and Shaun Murphy kick things off on Table 2.

Remember this is live streamed on a few betting sites and individual match betting is available.

Not sure yet if Betfair are back on board with this as last year they decided to not cover the group matches because of what they claimed were ‘integrity issues’ which were never clarified or proven (read about that decision here). Hopefully they will get back on board this year and give this event the coverage it deserves.

Feel free to chat amongst yourselves in the comments section and the best of luck if you are having a bet.
