The UK Snooker Championships were halted again today (Monday), this time after a spectator was taken ill.
Two games were stopped and the players left the stage at York Barbican during the incident.
It happened at 2.26pm.
Commentator Dennis Taylor told viewers watching the BBC coverage: “There might just be a little incident in the crowd there.
“There’s a gentleman just taken ill, but I think he’s OK.
“They probably want to get him out of the arena.”
Referee Olivier Marteel halted proceedings.
The players in both games, Judd Trump v Pang Junxu and Barry Hawkins v Ben Woollaston, retired backstage while the incident was ongoing.
A wheelchair was brought in to assist the man who fell ill, and play resumed at 2.35pm.
It comes after the Barbican was evacuated when a small fire was detected in the foyer last night (Sunday).
“I was in the practice room when the guy came in screaming saying we needed to evacuate,” player Matthew Selt told BBC Sport.
“We were all still pretty chilled but hopefully we don’t have to go through that again.
“We got over to the pub in the warmth because it would have been not so nice to be out in the cold for 40 minutes. It was a weird evening but it turned out all right in the end [for me].”
They decamped to the Edinburgh Arms. When they returned, Matthew defeated Ali Carter 6-3.
