Q School is an annual event where amateurs get the chance to qualify for the main tour. There are three events, which run back to back and the four winners of each quarter in each event win a two-year tour card to play as a professional on the circuit.

In this blog, I will be posting the four players who qualified from the first event.

Mark Selby 3-5 Andrew Pagett

(2013 Wuxi Classic)

Asian Tour - Event One starts in Haining, China on Monday. It is currently set to be the only Asian Tour event this season after the cancellation of an event earlier in the season.
