World Open: History

The World Open has previously been known as the Professional Players Tournament (1982-1983), the LG Cup (2001-2003) and the Grand Prix (1984-2000 & 2004-2009), which was last won by Neil Robertson when he defeated Ding Junhui 9-4 in Glasgow.

The Australian successfully defended the title in its first year as the World Open in 2010, beating Ronnie O'Sullivan 5-1 in Glasgow.

After a gap year, it returned as the Haikou World Open in 2012, with Mark Allen triumphing with a 10-1 victory over Stephen Lee and 12 months later he would retain the title by beating Matthew Stevens 10-4.

In the tournament's last outing in Haikou in 2014, Shaun Murphy overcame Mark Selby 10-6 and once again the event would be left off the calendar in the following season.

It returned as the World Open in 2016 as Ali Carter beat Joe Perry 10-8 in Yushan - and that's also the venue this time around.
