Provisional Rankings Following China Qualifiers

Bjorn celebrates yesterday's shock win over Matthew Stevens

A chance below to have a look at how things stand after the qualifying rounds this week. I’ve highlighted in bold the names that have a chance to improve on their ranking over in Beijing. Remember also at the end of February the qualifiers for the World Championships begin where the big points can be collected. Great to see Drago and Watanna climbing up to respectable positions, with Watanna drawn to play Mark King in Beijing he may climb even higher in his first season back. Drago too has a winnable opportunity in Beijing against Joe Perry and a win there plus qualification for the World Championship could even see him back in the top 32, which would be some going in his first season back. 

But golden opportunities missed yesterday for Matthew Stevens who will wake up this morning devastated at being booted out by Bjorn (pictured), he’ll now have to rely on qualification for the Crucible and probably a first round win to boot to have any chance and for Ricky Walden, a ranking winner two seasons ago and now it seems, unable to kick on from there. Graeme Dott sits in a nice position and will be hoping for a couple more wins and a Peter Ebdon meltdown in China.

Jamie Cope has been hovvering around the 17-20 spot for a couple of seasons now and will face Mark Williams in China. If he qualifies for the World Championship on top of this performance he may finally break into the elite for the first time. Barry Hawkins and Judd Trump are two others whose top 16 hopes remain very much alive so there is still all to play for with the qualifiers for Sheffield starting at the end of February closely followed by the China Open proper and not long after, the big one at the Crucible.

Who’s your prediction for top 16 next year then?

Post below if you’re brave enough (Click on ‘Leave a Comment’ it’s anonymous but you can leave a nom-de-plume) and shall we see who’s closest at the end of the season?

1 point for a correct top 16 player and 3 points for a player in the correct position at the end of the season. So I make that a maximum point score of 64.
