The UK Championship is a long established event that has been won by the greatest names in Snooker and last year was no exeption when Neil Robertson became only the 8th player to have completed the set of World, UK and Masters titles, of course since then Mark Selby has also joined that list of Steve Davis, Terry Griffiths, Alex Higgins, Stephen Hendry, Mark Williams, John Higgins and Ronnie O'Sullivan.

This year Neil Robertson will be defending his title against very strong opersition from Stuart Bingham, Ricky Walden, Barry Hawkins, Ronnie O'Sullivan, Judd Trump, Mark Allen, Shaun Murphy, Marco Fu, Mark Williams, John Higgins, Stephen Maguire and World Champion Mark Selby

Also playing are legends Jimmy White and after missing last years event due to going in the ITV Jungle Steve Davis is in the Draw as a invited Wild Card.

There are 6 amateurs in the draw Joe O'Connor, Ashley Carty, Daniel Wells, John Sutton, Eden Sharav and Amateur of the season so far Oliver Brown.

Who will win the 38th Staging of the event and will there be a new Name on the trophy this year?

Because of this fascination in showing Jimmy White

I remember last year's Jimmy White UK match being televised (vs Bingo), he play like a mug as he would say. Not pretty. Having said that, he did play well last month. Could he roll back the years?

His match with Harold will go close and its 50/50 with Harold form being poor itself having dropped to 70 But Jimmys biggest problem is the pressure he is creating with stupid comments like he still think he can be World Champion. He cant live up to that statement.

Judd Trump w/o Rouzi Maimalti

that match was a streamed match my guess is that Alan McManus v Joel Walker will be streamed instead.

Might have a bet on the Jimmy match , No prizes for guessing who I will be betting on to win .

Much as I have always been a fan of Jimmys snooker
He cant ho around saying he can still be wotld champion as it aint gonna happen ever.

Shame but his best years are past him now.
Still trying and good luck to him because he will need it .

If that's the case then Mcmanus v Walker should be a cracking match, I actually fancy Joel to beat him and maybe have a nice run in this tournament.

Robertson v Dott

Ding v Liu Chuang
Trump c Brecel
Murphy v Fu
Williams v Selby


if that's the case then we are in for a cracking Last 16 line-up, Williams v Selby the highlight match for me, as both players always bring the best out of each when they play.

Yeah, obviously there's a bit of personal favourites subjectivity in that - the one I'd have most doubt in is Trump v Brecel.

I wish.... you said you would... which days and sessions?


I guess it's a bit far for you to travel. All day Wednesday.


Good for you then, enjoy the Snooker mate. <ok>

Dotty v Ursenbacher should definately have been the match on stream this afternoon, Milkins v Leslie isn't much better, ok Milkins reached the Final of this last PTC but still... odd decision if you ask me, we're used to them anyway.

How can Liu Chuang be there??

I'm not so sure about Robbo v Dott, since Robbo never seems to do well against Ebdon according to their h2h. So we might get a Ebdon v Dott L16 match instead :chuckle:

yup that would be a miracle considering he had pulled out even before the Draw was published.

Selby's part of the draw is so tough :/ He'll be facing Williams/Maguire in R4, Murphy/Fu in the QF, Trump/Ding in the SF (if he even gets there) and the opponent in the Final will be much worse. So I think his chances of winning this year's UK Championship is very slim.
