Race to the Masters

This list is the ‘race to the Masters’, which will come into effect following the seeding cut-off following the UK Championship event on 11th December 2017. The top 16 on this list following that date will qualify for the 2018 Masters.

*Note that for the 2015/16 column all points earned from the start of the 2015/16 season, up to the 2015 UK Championship have already been deducted as those points will no longer count following this cut-off.

**Note that Ronnie O’Sullivan will be seeded number one as defending champion

Also note that Stuart Bingham has been removed from the list as he will be suspended for the Masters subject to any appeal. Stuart has indicated that he will not appeal.

Note that I will include the minimum points that the players will earn for each of the events between now and the final cut-off.

While a player remains in a tournament their points tally will be displayed in green. Once a player is out of a tournament, their points for that event will be displayed in red to reflect that they cannot increase that total. Should a player win a tournament, their points tally will be displayed in blue.
