The World Snooker Tour (“WST”) has threatened legal action against five of its own players for breach of contract if they take part in a non-sanctioned event in Macau.
Former world champions Mark Selby and John Higgins, this year’s world champion Luca Brecel, Ali Carter and Thepchaiya Un-Nooh have all pulled out of the WST’s Northern Ireland Open in order to take part in a financially lucrative exhibition in Macau.
World number one Ronnie O’Sullivan is lending his support to the players after describing WST’s stance as ‘b******s, trying to scare players like that’.
The players claim the threat from WST are without merit as they have not entered the Northern Ireland Open and therefore haven’t pulled out of any WST events and are heading to Macau in their own time.
