History of the Gibraltar Open

The Gibraltar Open was first held in 2015, but was originally organized under the auspices of the Players Tour Championship. This series no longer exists, but it used to organize low-ranking snooker tournaments. After 7 years, the Gibraltar Open is a ranking competition that gathers athletes of the highest level. Jud Trump, the current champion of the Gibraltar Open, until recently was the first in the world ranking of snooker players, and now occupies the third position. The upcoming tournament could help him move up the rankings.

National Representation

Snooker

The vast majority of snooker players participating in the tournament will represent England. More precisely, 70 of the 128 athletes who will play in the initial stage, 70 will perform under the English flag. Adding Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales representatives (a country of the United Kingdom), then their number will reach 87. Quite a lot of snooker players will come from China - 22 (+1 person from Hong Kong).

Gibraltar Open Snooker Bets and Odds

The last two tournaments were left to the Englishman Jud Trump. To be honest, this position is quite ambiguous. You can bet on his success for odds of 5.5, which is a fairly high figure. He is being followed by his compatriot, world number two Ronnie O'Sullivan. His victory is estimated at odds of 7.0. The victory of the Australian Neil Robertson is estimated at 4.

What about Mark Selby?

We noted the prospects of the world's top snooker players, but didn’t mention Mark Selby, the leader of the world rankings. What's wrong with him and why won't he take part in the tournament? The fact is that Mark is experiencing mental problems and cannot play yet. He recently had a relapse and is now working with specialists.

I want to apologize to my family and friends for letting them down. I am not in the best psychological state, I recently had a relapse. Trying to contain it by putting on a brave face is not an option. I promise that I will seek help and become better.
