The reaction of snooker’s governing body was that he was entitled to choose which tournaments to play, but that as the number of tournaments increases he might slip down the rankings. (5 new tournaments in China alone).

So far, so good. He is neither employed nor a mother, so there can be no suggestions of being confined to the “Mommy Track”. Is this not an illustration of the fact that choices have consequences?
