Michie v Campbell Shoot-Out Enquiry Resolved

Michie v Campbell Shoot-Out Enquiry Resolved

The WPBSA, working alongside the Gambling Commission, have completed a full investigation into suspicious betting patterns on a match at the World Snooker Shoot-Out between Jimmy Michie and Marcus Campbell on January 28th, 2011.

From World Snooker

The investigation has concluded that while there were irregular betting patterns on the match, there is currently no evidence to link the betting to either of the players involved. Therefore no regulatory action will be taken by the governing body against the players.

 

It's good to hear that this issue has been resolved. The bulk of the accusations had seemed to be aimed towards Jimmy Michie as he was the player that seemed to be playing the strangest out of the two but the commission seemed to find no evidence to accuse him of any wrong doings.

My personal opionion on the match is that some of Michie's shots and his body language did look slightly suspect but not having the video to look back on and study in further detail I can't say for sure. But at least the issue has been resolved a lot quicker than the Maguire/Burnett inquiry.
