The World Professional Billiards and World Snooker Association (WPBSA) has sanctioned world number 93 as part of a match-fixing investigation. Chen’s suspension is effective immediately and will last until the investigation is completed. The 27-year-old, who achieved a career-high ranking of 76 last year, has the right to appeal. No further comment will be made except in the event of any significant further developments,” the WPBSA, the sport’s world governing body, said in a statement.
Yan Bingtao, a former Masters champion, was the seventh Chinese player to be suspended earlier this month. The previous week, Lu Ning, Li Hang, Zhao Jianbo, Bai Lanning, and Chang Bingyu were also suspended for alleged match-fixing. Liang Wenbo, a compatriot, was banned on October 27 pending the outcome of a misconduct investigation.
