Six-time snooker world champion Steve Davis has lost his tour card after finishing outside the top 64 money earners.

The 56-year-old lost at the World Championship qualifiers, subsequently losing his place on the professional tour.

Davis has already said that he will play the European Tour events this season, and intends to enter Q School, where he will battle it out with 150 players for eight two-year tour cards.
