The first ranking event of the season, the Riga Masters begins on July 27th and truly starts the new professional year of snooker.
Only a week later is the World Open, the first of four ranking events in China this season. A huge change to the calendar this year is the long-standing Shanghai Masters tournament has now been made an invitational event for the first time. It wouldn't be a surprise to see defending champion Ronnie O'Sullivan return to that one!
What many fans call "the biggest ranking event outside of UK" the International Championship also returns to China once again on October 26th. No venue/location has been chosen for that one yet.
Later in the year we see that the World Grand Prix takes place on February 4th. Notably it has a new venue in the shape of the world-famous Cheltenham Racecourse, which many fans of www.allascasino.com/nya-casinon will enjoy! It's great to see professional snooker return to Gloucestershire after attending events at the South West Snooker Academy on many occasions.
Lastly and most definitely not least, the World Snooker Championships returns once again to the Crucible Theatre on April 20th. Mark Williams surprised the world beating John Higgins in an epic final last season. How many trophies will the charasmatic Welshman take this year?
