Let me be your fantasy

A new revolution could be about to sweep the green baize world; in the shape of Fantasy Snooker.

Lifelong snooker fan Stefan Wojciechowski is the man behind the bright idea which is set to launch at the end of Apeil in time for the new season.

Although still under construction, will host the online game where fans are invited to select and manage players throughout the season picking up points for their performances across ranking events.

Stefan said: "The user will be allowed to pick up to two players per tournament and is assigned a bank of virtual money which they get to spend throughout the season.

"Each player is priced according to his world ranking which will fluctuate as the season progresses. You can change these selections as many times as you like before each tournament deadline."

The innovative idea - similar to fantasy football games that have proved so popular among football fans - is free to enter and thanks to funding from Stefan and his two partners will offer prizes of £500, £200 and £100 for the top three finishers.

Stefan hasn't set himself any ambitious targets for particpants in its maiden season but said: "Our main aim is to produce an enjoyable user-friendly game which will grow over time."
