After the British Championships, the latest world ranking of snooker: O'Sullivan maintained the first place, and Ding Junhui rose to 12th
The 2023 Snooker UK Championship is over, and Rocket O'Sullivan defeated Ding Junhui 10-7 in the final, and the British Championship has been crowned king for 8 times. With the income of 250,000 pounds in the British Championship, O'Sullivan got rid of the gap with the chasing soldiers behind him and secured the number one position in the world. The Rockets' No. 1 position in the world can be guaranteed until next year's World Championships, and the conservative point should be guaranteed until next year's Tour Championships.
Although Ding Junhui failed to win the championship, with the income of 100,000 pounds from the runner-up, the world ranking returned to the top 16, and from the end of this season to the World Championships, Ding Junhui's top 16 position is basically stable. Therefore, Director Ding's second consecutive runner-up in the British Championships, although there are regrets, is still very worthwhile. At the same time, Ding Junhui surpassed Zhang Anda in the ranking and once again became the first brother in China.
The TOP16 lineup, after several twists and turns, in the end, only one person came in and out, Ding Junhui went in, and Ford came out. After the Ford National Championships, he entered the TOP16 for the first time, but was squeezed out of the TOP16 immediately after the British Championships; Ford only stayed in the TOP16 for 21 days, if Ford could not enter the TOP16 again, then Ford would become the most "short-lived" TOP16 player in snooker history. In addition, Lisowski was able to keep the top 16 position and get a ticket to the Masters, thanks to Mr. Fire.
The rankings of China's other players have not changed significantly compared to the world rankings after the National Championships. Zhou Yue's ranking has risen slightly, but there is still no substantial breakthrough. He Guoqiang is still at the top of the list of new players, but there is still work to be done in the future.
The world rankings after this British Championship will determine the quota and seeding for next year's Masters, and the top 16 players in the world will qualify for the Masters. At the same time, it is briefly emphasized that if a player retires before the Masters, the qualification of the substitute will not be determined according to the latest world ranking after the Scottish Open or the world ranking after the British Championship.
