Sutton probe


Irish amateur snooker player John Sutton has been suspended from competition pending the outcome of a hearing into suspicious betting patterns.

Suspicions were aroused during a match between Sutton and Jamie Burnett at the International Championship in Barnsley last September. WPBSA chairman Jason Ferguson said: "Under our policy for the global governance of the sport, I have taken the decision to suspend John Sutton from competition until the conclusion of the hearing or hearings."
