The First Round action continues at the 2022 Snooker Shoot Out on Friday with more shot clock drama on the cards in Leicester.
Day One of the unique ranking event saw 15-year-old Stan Moody steal the show on his debut, while the likes of Mark Selby, Mark Williams, Shaun Murphy, Jack Lisowski and David Gilbert all got off to a winning start.
Friday sees another unmissable double session take place at the Morningside Arena with a host of decorated stars and hungry amateurs in action.
Thepchaiya Un-Nooh, the 2019 Shoot Out champion, starts his quest for a second title with a clash against amateur top-up Kuldesh Johal in the afternoon session.
Former World Champion Stuart Bingham faces a tough opener against Six Red specialist Mark Davis, while Northern Ireland Open champion Mark Allen opens up against Rotherham’s Ashley Carty.

Tian Pengfei faces reigning Women’s English Open champion Rebecca Kenna, as two-time Shoot Out runner-up Xiao Guodong meets Mitchell Mann.
Yan Bingtao, the 2020 Masters champions, kicks off his campaign against Mark Joyce, while six-time world finalist Jimmy White looks to thrill the crowd by overcoming Sanderson Lam.
The evening session commences with a tasty tie between UK Championship finalist Luca Brecel and Joe Perry, while UK Champion Zhao Xintong starts out against 2020 Shoot Out winner Michael Holt.
Graeme Dott, twice a beaten finalist in this event, aims to continue his impressive Shoot Out record when he faces fellow veteran of the tour Mark King.
Former World Champion Ken Doherty, an ever-present in the Shoot Out, starts his latest campaign against 19-year-old Chinese cueist Bai Langning.
Welsh Open champion Jordan Brown faces Welsh star Jamie Jones, while Leicester’s Tom Ford looks to triumph on home soil against Yuan Sijun.
The general rules of the Shoot Out are the same as those in a traditional game of snooker, although there are several key variants that epitomise the uniqueness of the event.
These include all frames being capped at ten minutes, with the player scoring the most points declared the winner.
Players will lag to decide who breaks off and there will be a shot clock in operation, with the competitors having 15 seconds to complete each shot over the first five minutes of the frame, while just 10 seconds will be allocated during the last five minutes.
Players must hit a cushion or pot a ball with each they shot play otherwise it will be deemed a foul which, along with any other infringement, will result in the opponent being awarded the cue ball-in-hand.
