Russell challenges the World

Mike Russell has issued a challenge to play anyone in the World in a
match of 2,000-up for a sum between £5,000 and £10,000. As an
encouragement to would-be opponents, Russell says he would be
prepared to concede at least 500 points start.

Ferreira action dropped

We reported in our last issue that Mike Russell had made an official
complaint to the WPBSA alleging that Mike Ferreira had asked himself
and David Causier to lose their pairs match in last year´s Test Match in
India. It is understood that David Causier also made a written submission
to the WPBSA in support of Russell´s claim. Having considered
Ferreira´s response, the WPBSA have announced that no action will be
taken against him as they are satisfied that he has no case to answer.

WPBSA move

The WPBSA have now moved from their offices in Oakfield Road and
taken up residence in another part of Bristol. They have also made
another change of image, producing a new logo and adopting the trading
name of “World Snooker”. Their new address is Albert House, 111-
117 Victoria Street, Bristol BS1 6AX (Telephone 0117-317-8200)
