Pink Ribbon returns

The second annual Pink Ribbon charity pro am begins this Thursday.

With the success of last year's maiden event, the tournament is expected to be even bigger.

It's already the largest pro am in the world and organiser Paul Mount is hoping to gazump the £6,000 raised for breast cancer charities last year.

Each player must donate £25 to charity to play - and there's also a £10,000 winners chest up for grabs.

The event gives professional players the chance to prepare ahead of the new season, while for the hopeful amateurs, it's an opportunity to test yourself against the best.

Among the entrants, last year's champion Michael Holt is returning alognside runner-up Jimmy White. Then there's Andrew Pagett, who famously wore pink on his Crucible debut this season, world champion John Higgins, Graeme Dott and Stephen Maguire.

The four-day event is likely to attract plenty of media coverage.

OnCue would like to wish all the participants luck for what is a terrific competition, for a great cause.

There couldn't be a better setting either.
