These were the 137th and 138th official maximum breaks in professional competition. Ronnie O'Sullivan made his 14th maximum break in professional competition in the 5th frame of his last 64 match against Elliot Slessor. It was only the second time that two 147s were made at the main stage of a professional ranking event, the first time being at the 2008 World Championship.

Match List

Another young Chinaman destined for greatness. Like many young Asian prospects, he has featured as a wildcard on many occasions. In the 2018/2019 season, he collected many professional scalps. Another players to watch article. In the China Championship, he beat Jimmy Robertson and Robert Milkins to reach the second round. He was only halted by eventual winning Mark Selby. 16 year old Chang Bingyu has qualified as one of the best players on the CBSA China Tour. But he is not just an unknown player.

Selby's win was his 15th professional ranking event win. Mark Selby won the event, defeating John Higgins in the final 109. It was the fourth ranking event of the 2018/2019 season.Luca Brecel was the defending champion, but he lost to Martin O'Donnell 35 in the first round. The 2018 Evergrande China Championship was professional ranking snooker tournament, that took place between 2430 September 2018 in Guangzhou, China, with qualifying took place from 19 to 22 August 2018 in Preston, England.

Qualifying[edit]

Over the course of last season, he rose 23 places to No. Hes someone who has gone completely under the radar and one of the most consistent players. 35 in the rankings, his highest ever position. He is one to watch and I reckon he will break into the Top 32 very soon! Dont forget, he qualified for the World Championships for the first time.

The 2019 Riga Masters (also known as the 2019 Kapersky Riga Masters due to sponsorship) was a professional ranking snooker tournament held from 26 to 28 July 2019 at the Arna Rga in Riga, Latvia. The defending champion, Neil Robertson, previously defeated Jack Lisowski in the 2018 final. It was the sixth Riga Masters event, with the first being held in 2013, and the first ranking event of the 2019/2020 snooker season. However, Robertson and several other players were forced to withdraw from qualifying round matches due to flight cancellations, and therefor could not compete in the event.

It will be interesting to see if he can cope with the pressure and of course, how difficult the main tour is compared to the non-professional events. Jackson Page kept blossoming on the amateur circuit, winning a trophy cabinets worth of European and World titles. He finally qualified for the main tour by winning the European U-21 Championship. We will soon know. He beat Irelands Ross Bulman 5-1.

Superstar Zhao Xintong is finally showing us what he is capable of. In fact, he did so well, he qualified for the World Grand Prix for being among the Top 32 players in the Order of Merit. Since he dropped off the tour and qualified immediately via Q School last year, he was on a rampage. At the start of the season, he reached the China Championship semi-finals, beating Anthony McGill, Mark Williams and Barry Hawkins.

He beat Robertson again in the World Open and Mark Davis in the China Open. Clearly, he can play extremely well. Hell, we have Si Jiahui and Lei Peifan two 16 year-olds who are in the mix and goodness know what impact they will make! I do wonder if it is too early for these players to go on tour early and if they can adapt to the gruelling travel, the non-stop snooker, especially since most of the events are far away from home.
