Events run from May to the following April, with the trip to Sheffield marking the end of a season.
Outside of these recognised events, low ranking players are given the chance to participate in other tournaments, with victory providing them with ranking points, which in turn boosts their chances of playing in the televised competitions.
Snooker betting is never better than at the World Championships
The World Championships is the biggest event in the snooker betting calendar and offers a variety of great markets.
The top 16 players in the world rankings automatically qualify for the first round, alongside the 16 players that successfully make it through qualifying.
Ladbrokes Mobile Masters odds may also be of interest as it is the second biggest tournament of the season and only features the top 16 players based on the world rankings.
Alongside attempting to pick a winner of a particular match in the, a number of other betting opportunities exist in these tournaments.
These include which player will win a tournament, which two players will make the final or which player will reach the semi finals from a particular quarter of the draw. Snooker betting odds may also be popular in terms of whether a maximum break of 147 will be registered in a tournament.
Ronnie O’Sullivan is always worth backing in the snooker betting
Ronnie O’Sullivan’s odds to win a tournament tend to be especially sought after as he is widely considered to be the game’s best player – when he puts his mind to it.
John Higgins is another player who may be a shorter price in the snooker betting as he is usually a good bet to reach the latter stages of a tournament.
Many young players are now also knocking on the door of tournament victories, including Mark Allen, Ding Junhui and 2011 World Championship runner-up, Judd Trump.
