Format and rules
It will be a one frame shoot out with a random draw. 64 players will contest the tournament, which will be shown on Sky, the first time that Sky has shown a World Snooker event live since 2004. Frames will be subjected to the 20 second shot clock in the first five minutes and to a 15 second shot clock in the last 5 minutes. Clock starts when the player takes the cueball. Players must hit a cushion or pot a ball on every shot. Players 'lag' for who breaks and the winner decides. All foul will result in ball in hand. After 10 minutes, the player with the most points win. If the score is tied, then a blue ball shoot out decide.
The draw for round 1 was made on 28 November 2010, just before the final of the Premier League. The draw for each round including the semi-finals was random, made just before the round began. All times are GMT, scores in parentheses are century breaks.
