Masters Snooker History

The Masters, which makes up snooker's Triple Crown, is the second longest running snooker event behind the worlds although there are no ranking points on offer as it remains a purely invitational tournament of just 16 players - who are usually the highest ranked in the world at the time.

The event began in 1975 when John Spencer beat Ray Reardon 9-8 in a thriller and has always been held in London although the venue switched to Alexandra Palace from Wembley in 2012.

Snooker's biggest names of the past such as Ray Reardon, Steve Davis, Alex Higgins and Cliff Thorburn have all won this trophy - as well as one of the most lucrative winners' cheques in the sport - but Stephen Hendry then became the most successful player in the event's history when winning it five times in a row and six in total during the height of his powers in the early 1990s.

Ronnie O'Sullivan then equalled this record in 2016 with a 10-1 thrashing of Barry Hawkins in 2016 and then a year later moved one clear with a 10-7 victory over Joe Perry.

Shaun Murphy's 2015 triumph over Neil Robertson saw him become just the 10th player in history to complete the Triple Crown having previously won the World Championship and UK Championship once each.

The others are Stephen Hendry (7 worlds, 5 UKs & 6 Masters), Steve Davis (6 worlds, 6 UKs & 3 Masters), Ronnie O'Sullivan (5 worlds, 5 UKs & 6 Masters), John Higgins (4 worlds, 3 UKs & 2 Masters), Mark Williams (2 worlds, 2 UKs & 2 Masters), Alex Higgins (2 worlds, 1 UKs & 2 Masters), Mark Selby (1 worlds, 1 UKs & 3 Masters), Terry Griffiths (1 worlds, 1 UKs & 1 Masters) and Neil Robertson (1 worlds, 1 UKs & 1 Masters).
