So, my little "workaholics" the weekend is here, so have no fear, we will have a blast! :) At least that what a weekend is all about, right? I mean, reading, taking a walk in the park, talking to friends, drinking...stuff like that! :))
But my little Snooker Loopy are hungry for snooker, so I’ve decided to share with you a couple of news, for it is highly recommended to be informed these days. I mean, "information= power", right? So, if you want to be mighty and powerful, you`ll have to read the news :))) Say no to steroids and read the news...or something like that! :P

So, the first one refers to the upcoming EPTC 1 event and the second one to "the business of the month" (in my opinion) for I think this will bring such joy to all the snooker fans who want their scoreline per minute. ;)

Hendry And O’Sullivan To Face Chinese in Germany

Ronnie O'Sullivan and Stephen Hendry have both been handed tricky draws against Chinese opponents in the Paul Hunter Classic in Fuerth, Germany, later this month.
O'Sullivan will be up against Yu Delu while Hendry takes on former Crucible qualifier Liu Chuang.

Other matches of note include a clash between former World Champions Graeme Dott and Steve Davis, Shaun Murphy against Mark King, Marco Fu against Zhang Anda, Neil Robertson against Andy Hicks and Welsh youngsters Jamie Jones and Jak Jones going head to head.

The event, which is the first in the Euro Players Tour Championship series, runs from August 27 to 29.
