Rankings in every Sport should represent the hard graft of getting out there and playing and not just turning up for some events.
i do think the point allocation is wrong but money takes it to the extreme and against what rankings should be about.
2014 World Championship is worth more points to the Winner than 2013 and over the coming years i could easily see more Money for Chinese Events than the UK Championship.
Yes Wild I fully agree, one player can only turn up to a couple of events, win them for instance and be placed high in the rankings as opposed to a player who competed in everything, reached far in some events but didn't win them, or at least didn't win one where the prize money was higher than other events.
The money system though I'm all for it, but there should be a better balance between for instance a winner and a runner-up. Hearn says the sport is for the winners and they should be rewarded, but when there are such massive differences in prize money things need some sorting out. But despite all this money rankings is the way forward for me.
