Current Ratings

The following table shows the ratings of snooker players at the end of the UK Championship.  Please see here for an explanation of how the ratings have been created.  This list is made up of confirmed participants on the Professional Tour during the 2017/18 season.

Note that this does not include Jimmy White, Ken Doherty or James Wattana who have been awarded Invitational Tour Cards only.

The next update will follow the conclusion of the Scottish Open on the 17th December.

I have also produced a form rating for each player based on their performances in the last 5 tournaments – the higher the rating, the stronger their performances have been.

I will be reviewing the methodology behind the ratings over the next few months and will also revise the form guides at the same time.

Version 3.0 Update 45

This update reflects the position on the 10th December 2017 following the conclusion of the UK Championship.

Version 3.0 was created at the start of the 2015/16 season. This version amends the way that performances in tournament are assessed. The numbers of frames that a player is expected to win against each of their opponents is now calculated, rather than just producing a cumulative expectation based on all the matches they have played.

This has typically reduced the rating of individual players, by up to 50 points in some cases. The position of each player in the list is largely unaffected, with around 1/3 of players occupying the same position as under the previous version, and another 1/3 of players only moving by 1 place.
