World champion John Higgins, No 2 Graham Dott, seventh ranked Mark Selby and former world No 1 Steve Davis are expected to play at Fort Regent against Jersey and Guernsey cueists together with the current and past champions of Poland.

Event organiser Rob Smiley, of FSTC Sport Management, said: ‘We are moving towards confirming the tournament for some time next summer; the support I’m getting in Jersey has been good and if it comes off it will be a good event.

‘We’ve run a similar event in Warsaw before and it went down very well.

‘The format will have the Jersey, Guernsey and Polish players each playing a pro on the first day of competition with the semi-finals and final taking place the following day.’ Should the event be finalised it promises to be an excellent weekend of snooker as the the star-studded quartet of visiting pros have won the world title nine times between them.

Higgins, who was champion for the first time in 1998, is the current world champion having defeated first-time finalist Selby 18-13 at the Crucible Theatre in Sheffield in the last final in May.

The legendary Davis, who is currently ranked 15 in the World, won six world crowns in the 1980s while Dott was champion in 2006.
