Come next Thursday the PTC in Killarney will be in full flow with the 110 amateur players that entered all battling it out to make the pro stages on Friday. Thirty odd amateurs will progress to the Last 128 and face off against the pro's and a chance to appear live on Eurosport over the weekend.
Despite the high quality field of amateurs coming over from the UK hopefully from RIBSA's point of view we will see a good number of Irish players progress to join the likes of Ken Doherty, Fergal O'Brien, David Morris and David Hogan in the pro stages.
However it's not all over for those that dont as all Non-UK amatuers have a second event to compete in with the winner of this event qualifying to compete as a Wild Card in the German Masters Finals in Berlin next February.
So who you you think it will be , we have a poll running on the site, why not give your opinion!
