UK Championship

The UK Championship is one of the only sporting events this year that is actually taking place on the traditional dates, with this year’s scheduled to happen between the 24th November and 6th December.

This tournament is a ranking event and one of snookers ‘Triple Crown’ with the World Snooker Championship and the Masters taking place earlier in the year. This edition of the tournament will take place in York without fans in attendance and has a total prize fund £850,000.

The Contenders

Last years winner Ding Junhui will be hopeful that he can retain his title this time round. Last years tournament was just the second triple crown event that the Chinese player has won, and his form has been sketchy at best since then. Ding has regularly been eliminated in early rounds of ranking events and dropped to number 10 in the world rankings, so would need to find some from to put in a real challenge.

Reigning World Champion and one of the best players ever to pick up a cue, Ronnie O’Sullivan - who is also one of the odds favourites to be awarded BBC Sports Personality of the Year 2020 - will be looking to win his 8th UK Championship and 38th ranking event at this year’s tournament. The Rocket looked unstoppable at the World Championships in June but since then has been knocked out of a couple of events by lower ranked players. As always with Ronnie, it wholly depends on whether his head is in the right place when the tournament comes round, if it is then you might struggle to stop him.

Judd Trump is currently ranked World Number 1, and in the last 4 years he is won a stunning 11 ranking events as well as the 2019 Masters. Despite all of this success Trump rarely plays well at the UK Championships, winning it once way back in 2011, and advancing past the 4th round on just one other occasion, which is a record he will be itching to set right this time round.

Having finished runner up in the World Championship in the summer, relative youngster Kyren Wilson will be looking to a step further this time round and win his first triple crown title. The highly rated Wilson earned the unwanted reputation as the nearly man last season, reaching 3 ranking tournament finals but winning none.

Other players’ in with a genuine shout include reigning Masters champion Stuart Bingham, World Number 3 and former World Champion Neil Robertson, 3-time World Champion Mark Selby, 4-time World Champion John Higgins and 2005 World Champion Shaun Murphy amongst others.

Summary

Ranking events in Snooker, and especially Triple Crown events are notoriously hard to predict, which makes them a nightmare for bookies and the 2020 UK Championship is no different. There are a whole host of players seen as outsiders that actually have a genuine chance of winning if they find form and have a little bit of luck on their side.
