O'Sullivan to play US pool events

World number one Ronnie O'Sullivan has confirmed he will play on the American pool circuit in addition to playing on the regular snooker tour.

The 29-year-old said he would continue to compete in the Grand Prix, UK and World Championships, the Masters and the Premier League.

But he said he was undecided about the China Open or Welsh Open.

"I have many options and alternatives that I might like to try or explore this season and beyond," he said.

Last month O'Sullivan said he wanted to cut down the number of events he played but that he had "commitments which require me to play in the BBC-covered events".

Meanwhile, O'Sullivan has re-joined former manager Ian Doyle's 110sport stable.

The two-times world champion famously criticised Doyle and 110sport player Stephen Hendry during the 2002 World Championship.

At the time, in May 2002, he said: "I was always second in the pecking order to Hendry.

"I have no respect for them at all. It's just one massive clique. No-one in his (Doyle's) stable will ever do well because the vibe is there.

"That's why I've done so well since I've left him. Maybe some other players would do well if they left him, but I don't think they'll have the bottle."

Australian world number 28 Neil Robertson has also joined 110sport.
