WSIC - Chengdu

The World Snooker International Championship (WSIC) has as much money, and as many Ranking Points, as the UK Championship - making it the most expensive Tournament ever held in China, and on an equal status with the 2nd Most Important Ranking Event on the Calendar.

NEIL ROBERTSON has played brilliantly to defeat SHAUN MURPHY 9-5 in the Semi-Final, but was unlucky to lose 8-10 to JUDD TRUMP, the new WORLD NO.1, in a very high quality Final. This is only the 2nd Televised Final that Neil has ever lost in 12 Finals appearances. Neil has certainly shown that he is capable of winning in China, and will look forward to having even more success at next month's UK Championship.

Judd is only the 10th player to have ever held the World No.1 position, and he replaces Mark Selby. Trump and Selby are the only No.1s who have not been World Champion. Neil has risen to No.5 in the latest Rankings.

World Snooker have effectively created a Grand Slam of the World Championship, The Masters, the UK Championship, and now the World Snooker International Championship. Neil has won 2 of these, and has been a Semi-Finalist at the UK last year, and now the Runner-Up at the WSIC.

Prince of Poland! Again!!

NEIL ROBERTSON has triumphed in EPTC2 in Gdynia, in Poland. Last year, NEIL won EPTC3 which was held in Warsaw, Poland's capital, so he has viewed this as a SUCCESSFUL defence of his Polish Title.

NEIL won 4-3 over JAMIE JONES, in the Round of 32, making 1 Century. In the Round of 16, NEIL defeated MARTIN GOULD 4-3 after making 2 Centuries!

In the Quarter-Final, he triumphed 4-0 over TIAN PENGFEI, and then defeated STEPHEN MAGUIRE 4-2, in the Semi-Final, making another Century.

In a gripping Final, NEIL made another Century to lead 3-0, however, JAMIE BURNETT was not to be denied and fought back to 3-3. JAMIE needed to make a clearance from 38 behind to snatch the Final frame on the black, however, when he missed a colour after the second-last red, NEIL cooly potted the balls required to ensure a famous victory!

NEIL has now been successful in 10 Televised Finals (out of 11 contested).
