Champion of Champions 2017 – The Final Field

  • 6th November 2017
  • Neil Robertson in Coventry

The line-up for the 188BET Champion of Champions is now complete following Mark Selby’s victory at the International Championship yesterday.

With the world number one already safely qualified for the event after his successful 2016/17 season, the final place in the competition goes to Australia’s Neil Robertson following his victory at the Hong Kong Masters earlier this year.

The 2015 winner had initially looked set to fall short of qualification, but with the suspended Stuart Bingham missing out on a return to the Ricoh Arena, Robertson takes the 16th spot and will face two-time champion Ronnie O’Sullivan first up on Thursday.
