Who wins The Masters (snooker) 2021?
2021 Masters (Snooker)
The Masters is always a celebration of the best snooker players from throughout the world and the 2021 edition will be no different. It is one of snookers prestigious ‘Triple Crown’ events alongside the World Snooker Championship and UK Championship and features the top 16 players from the world rankings battling it out in a 7-day festival of snooker at London’s Alexandra Palace. The 2021 edition will take place between the 10th and 17th of January.
Since the tournament is invite only, it ensures that we see the very best players in the world playing against each other but also means it is a non-ranking event. The total prize fund is a £725,000 split between the 16 qualifiers with the winner taking home a colossal £250,000.
The final list of qualifiers will not be available until the World Rankings are locked in closer to the event, but its safe to assume all of the regular big names will make it.
The one person with a guaranteed spot is reigning champion Stuart Bingham who defeated Ali Carter 10-8 in last years tournament. This was the second (along with the 2015 World Championship) triple crown win of Stuart Bingham’s career and the 44-year-old will be looking to push his career on with another good showing here.
World Number 1 Judd Trump has looked unstoppable in recent times winning 7 ranking tournaments in the last two seasons, including 2 UK Championships and a World Championship. He is also the 2019 Masters Champion, however put in a disappointing showing last time out where he lost 6-3 in the first round to Shaun Murphy. He will be looking to set the record straight in 2021 and will certainly be one of the big favourites going into the tournament.
Ronnie O’Sullivan (which also is one of the odds favourites to be awarded BBC Sports Personality of the Year 2020) is a 7-time Master’s champion and will be amongst the big favourites in any tournament he enters. However, he turned a few heads last season where he elected not to enter and forfeited his qualification spot. There is no word as of yet whether The Rocket will show up this year but will certainly be a big favourite to make it 8 if he does.
Kyren Wilson is touted as a player that could win many triple crown events in the future and will have this one chalked down as a big opportunity. Wilson lost in the World Championship final to Ronnie O’Sullivan in 2020 and has been in top form this season.
As always with snooker, and especially at the Masters, it promises to be a nightmare for the bookies. The nature of the tournament having the worlds to 16 players means that every single qualifier will be capable of winning it.
Masters (snooker) 2021 will be held after Masters (golf) 2020.
