How much of that 124k has Jamie Lewis won in the past two editions of the world championship?? I’m guessing the vast majority hence why a tv ranking list would be daft...

£120k, £85k last year, £35 this year. Apart from that he has a measly £2,500 from the Players Championship Finals and £1,750 from the UK Open, both where he lost his first game

You could say the same about plenty of other players on that list if you took away their two highest payouts they would be nowhere near the the top but it’s a pointless arguement and as I have already said the worlds is by far the biggest tournement and thus deserves to have a greater effect on ranking than the others. Still would prefer this as a ranking system as playing on the floor has very little impact on how good you are going to be on TV and this gives a better indidcation of who the seeds should be based on the tournaments that actually matter. Rather than people like White and King who over the last 2 years have done jack shit on tv but are still so high up the ranking because of their TV performances.

It's not a pointless argument though is it given you were talking about a tv ranking system...

If the large World Championship prize money skews the rankings too much, they could do an OOM that's 2 years, but includes only 1 World Championship. So, a good performance at the World Championship would give a player 1 year ranking boost, but then they'd have to show consistency to maintain that ranking.

All these ideas about the ranking... They're just gonna up the prize money on the tour, and that's it. Simple. No need for anything else.

Cross and Gurney are those who have the lot to defend this year.
