    Thepchaiya Un-Nooh

The 2019 BetVictor Shoot Out ran from February 21-24, at the Watford Colosseum, with Eurosport and Quest as the host broadcaster for the first time.

Thepchaiya Un-Nooh beat Michael Holt in the final to win his first ranking title and become the first Asian player to lift the trophy.

The world ranking tournament, which has been running since 2011, has a unique set of rules, with matches lasting a maximum of ten minutes and a shot clock of 15 seconds for the first five minutes and ten seconds for the last five.

Broadcast of the event has now been incorporated into World Snooker’s long-term partnership with Eurosport and Quest, which runs until 2026. The Shoot Out brings the total number of events broadcast by Eurosport to 19 (17 in the UK) with qualifying rounds and other events available on Eurosport Player.

The tournament features 128 players in a flat draw, each needing to win seven matches to take the title.

The agreement to broadcast the Shoot Out supplements Eurosport’s coverage of world-class snooker throughout the season. The pan-European broadcaster already screens in excess of 800 hours of live snooker action throughout the season.
