World Snooker rankings: The updated Order of Merit following the 2018 Welsh Open

O’Sullivan celebrates winning his sixth world title

Ronnie O’Sullivan has climbed to second in the WST rankings after claiming his sixth World Championship title.

O’Sullivan ended a seven-year wait for world title in emphatic fashion by thrashing Kyren Wilson 18-8 in the final at The Crucible.

O’Sullivan’s triumph sees him become the most successful ranking event winner of all-time with 37 titles, eclipsing Stephen Hendry and moving within one of Hendry’s record tally of seven world titles.

The £500,000 top prize has seen ‘The Rocket’ surge four places to second on the Order of Merit, topping the £1 million barrier over a two-year rolling period.

Judd Trump, the 2019 World Champion, remains clear at the top of the rankings, having won a record six ranking titles during the 2019/20 season.

Wilson, who enjoyed a fine run to his first World Championship final, is up two places to a career-high sixth, leapfrogging the likes of John Higgins.

Mark Williams’ failure to defend his world title winning prize money from two years ago means he drops seven places from third to tenth despite a run to the Quarter-Finals.

Neil Robertson drops one place to third, while three-time World Champion Mark Selby is up three places to fourth after reaching the Semi-Finals – where he was denied in a deciding frame by O’Sullivan.

Barry Hawkins has fallen two places and out of the elite top 16 to 17th following his Second Round exit, having reached the Semi-Finals in 2018.

Despite failing to qualify for the tournament, Joe Perry has climbed one place to regain a spot in the top 16.

Elsewhere, Anthony McGill’s sensational run to the Semi-Finals in Sheffield has seen him climb back up to 22nd, having picked up £100,000 in prize money.

McGill came through two last-frame deciders en route and was eventually halted in an unforgettable, hour-long final frame by Wilson.

McGill defeated Jamie Clarke in Round Two, with the Welsh debutant having protecting his Tour Card by qualifying for the event.

Clarke has subsequently climbed thirteen places to 76th in the rankings, while quarter-finalist Kurt Maflin moves up to a career-high 27th.

Noppon Saengkham has regained a place among the world’s top 32, having reached the Last 16 at The Crucible for the first time – where he was edged out by Selby in a 25th frame decider.

All players ranked inside the top 64 on the two-year prize money list below following the 2020 World Championship retain their place on the tour next season.

They will be joined by the 35 players who earned a two-year card the previous year as well as the top four on the One Year Ranking List who have not already qualified for the Main Tour.

A further two places are allocated from the Challenge Tour, two from the CBSA China Tour and a further 12 places through Qualifying School.

Two-year tour cards were also awarded to any player outside the top 64 who qualified for the main stage of the 2020 World Championship.

The remainder of places on to the tour came from amateur events and national governing body nominations.
