Stuart Bingham – Ball-run
In the first round of the 2020 UK Championship in November 2020, Bingham made his eighth maximum break of his career, defeating Zak Surety by six frames to two. However, he was defeated in the final 32 by Dott. Despite winning the Masters, Bingham was no longer rated in the top 16, and he had to qualify for the World Snooker Championship in 2021. In the last qualifying round, he defeated Luca Brecel 10–5 to advance to the mainstages. In the first round, he faced Ding Junhui and defeated him 10–9. In the second round, he overcame Jamie Jones 13–6, and in the quarter-finals, he defeated Anthony McGill. In the semi-final, he faced Selby but lost 15–17, accusing Selby of probable gamesmanship.
Lyu Haotian – The Beijeng Breakbuilder
Lyu Haotian qualified for the second stage of the first WST Pro Series after winning his first six mini-matches, including a 2–0 victory over defending World Champion Ronnie O'Sullivan.
Lyu defeated fellow Chinese players Gao Yang and Chang Bingyu in the World Championship to qualify for the Crucible for the second time. However, his break-off shot in the opening frame struck the blue, and his opponent Mark Allen won with a 139 break. This set the tone for Allen's victory, which he won 10–2. Lyu was rated 53 at the end of the season.
Lyu's results were once again inconclusive. His finest successes were reaching the third round of the Northern Ireland Open, when he defeated Allister Carter and Mark King, and reaching the fourth round of the Gibraltar Open, where he defeated Allan Taylor, Ross Muir, and Michael Georgiou.
