This was the final ranking event before the 2000 World Championship (for which the qualifying matches have already been played).
For once, the Scottish Open wasn't dominated by Scottish players, with only Dott and Higgins getting as far as the quarter finals. It should be noted though that Stephen Maguire (currently ranked 63) made a 147.
Ronnie O'Sullivan met the man on form, Mark Williams in the final, and it was a one-sided affair. Ronnie handed down a thrashing to his class of 92 contemporary, winning 9-1. The tone was set in the first frame of the match, with the Rocket winning despite Williams' 68 break. The highest break of the match was only 69, made by Ronnie in winning the eighth frame.
Stephen Lee didn't play in this one. Hendry lost to Stevens in the last 16.
Graeme Dott (37) 5-3 Matthew Stevens (7)
