Unusual Betting Patterns Flag a Snooker Match

WPBS Association to investigate the matter

According to the World Professional Billiards and Snooker Association (WPBSA), unidentified bookmakers have flagged a snooker match between Joe Jogia and Matthew Selt at the Snooker Shoot Out in Blackpool, Saturday, January 28, for the unusually high placing of bets on Selt to win.

WPBSA Chairman, Jason Ferguson, said that the Association's Integrity Unit has initiated an investigation: "Maintaining the integrity of snooker is essential to protect the sport. Working with our partners we will take all necessary steps to establish what has taken place and take appropriate action."

Some bookmakers, such as William Hill and Ladbrokes, recognize that snooker and Darts are becoming more and more popular with punters, and therefore provide key sponsorships in one or both of these sports disciplines.
