The Champions Snooker Tournament 2011 USSA Tour event will be contested from May 27-29, but will be played using a different format from others used on Tour this year as players will be competing in a double elimination event.
The double elimination format is unusual in snooker, however with the short best-of-three frame ties, players will not be under so much pressure to win their first match.
