At least try and look disappointed....

The latest investigation into betting irregularities in snooker has concluded that the one frame match involving Jimmy Michie and Marcus Campbell, which Marcus won, was subject to irregular betting patterns but that these cannot be linked to either player.

Michie retired from the professional game shortly after the match and did not play again on the pro tour.

WPBSA Statement

The WPBSA, working alongside the Gambling Commission, have completed a full investigation into suspicious betting patterns on a match at the World Snooker Shoot-Out between Jimmy Michie and Marcus Campbell on January 28th, 2011.

The investigation has concluded that while there were irregular betting patterns on the match, there is currently no evidence to link the betting to either of the players involved. Therefore no regulatory action will be taken by the governing body against the players.
