Snooker Welsh Open
The Welsh Open is a professional Snooker tournament that was established way back in 1992 and that has been held at numerous venues throughout the Principality.
The Welsh Open has a long history in its own right and it was well established as a mainstream tournament but it has also undergone lots of changes throughout its existence and it is also part of the Home Nations Series of tournaments where alongside the Northern Irish Open, the Scottish Open and the English Open, there is aa chance of any player who picks up the title at each of the event in a s season to get a massive bonus.
If any player needed extra motivation to do well at this event, that is plenty reason to do so.
The tournament started life at the Newport Centre, in the town of Newport close to the English border in South East Wales.
The inaugural event saw Stephen Hendry (Scotland) defeat local favourite Darren Morgan by 9 frames to 7 to pick up the first ever Welsh Open title. Th Scottish star also defeated Mark King in 1997 and Mark Williams in 2003.
The tournament stayed in Newport for 7 years and during this period the likes of Ken Doherty (who defeated Alan McManus in 1993), Steve Davis (who also defeated Alan McManus in 1994 and John Higgins in 1995), Paul Hunter (who defeated John Higgins in 1998) and Mark Williams (who defeated John Parrott in 1996 to become the first Welshman to win the title).
In 1999, the event moved to the Welsh capital city of Cardiff for the first time with the action taking lace at the Cardiff International Arena.
The first event in the capital city was aptly won by Mark Williams of Wales who defeated Stephen Hendry by 9 frames to 8, in an exciting match that was in the balance throughout.
The event stayed at the arena for another 4 editions which saw John Higgins (in 2000 vs Stephen Lee), Ken Doherty (in 2001 vs Paul Hunter), Paul Hunter (in 2002 vs Ken Doherty) and Stephen Hendry (in 2003 vs Mark Williams).
The vent then moved to the nearby Welsh Institute of Sport and saw The Rocket Ronnie O’Sullivan defeat Steve Davis by a single frame in the final.
O’Sullivan kept his title a year later by defeating Stephen Hendry when the Welsh Open moved back to the Newport Centre. He also won the final event held in Newport by defeating Ding Junhui in 2014.
The event spent 10 years back in Newport with lots of household names winning the vent during this era including Stephen Lee (vs Shaun Murphy in 2006), Neil Robertson (vs Andrew Higginson in 2007), Mark Selby (vs Ronnie O’Sullivan in 20098), Ali Carter (vs Joe Swail in 2009), John Higgins (vs Ali Carter in 2010 and Stephen Maguire in 2011), Ding Junhui (vs Mark Selby in 2012) and Stephen Maguire (vs Stuart Bingham in 2013).
The Cardiff International Arena once again hosted the tournament from 2015 onwards but arguably the biggest shock in the tournaments history came in 2012 when the Celtic Manor Resort hosted the final that saw rank outsider Jordan Brown defeated superstar Ronnie O’Sullivan by 9 frames to 8 to pick up the title.
Winners during the time back at the Arena include John Higgins (vs Ben Woollaston in 2015), Ronnie O’Sullivan(vs Neil Robertson in 2016), Stuart Bingham (vs Judd Trump in 2017), John Higgins (vs Barry Hawkins in 2018), Neil Robertson (vs Stuart Bingham in 2019) and Shaun Murphy (vs Kyren Wilson in 2020).
