    UK Snooker Championship 2019

    China's Ding Junhui won his third UK Championship by dispatching Scotland's Stephen Maguire 10-6 in an absorbing final featuring seven century breaks.

    Ding, 32, had not won a ranking event since 2017 and last lifted the UK trophy a decade ago - four years after his first triumph as a teenager.

    Back-to-back centuries secured a 5-3 first-session lead and he sealed victory with successive tons.

    Maguire made three tons in four frames, but his poor start proved costly.

    Ding, who won the first four frames in a confident start, became only the fifth player to win the UK title on three or more occasions.

  7. What is the UK Snooker Championship?

    The UK Snooker Championship is one of Snooker's 'Triple Crown' events alongside the World Championship and the Masters.

    The 2019 edition of the UK Snooker Championship was held at the York Barbican for the eighth successive year. This year due to the Covid-19 Pandemic the 2020 edition will be held at the Marshall Arena in Milton Keynes.

    Early stages of the tournament had already been moved from The Barbican but it was decided at the start of November that the whole tournament should be hosted in Milton Keynes.

    The Marshall Arena has held all of snooker’s tournaments as part of its bio-secure bubble. The tournament was previously held in York from 2001-2006 and returned in 2011 after being held in Telford for four years.
