Captain Flies Up Rankings

Ali Carter is back into the elite top 16 of the world rankings following his victory at the Hanteng Autos World Open.

Carter claimed his first ranking title in over three years by beating Joe Perry 10-8 in the final on Sunday. And the £90,000 top prize saw the Essex potter leap 15 places to 16th on the official list.

Mark Selby remains world number one, as he has been since February 2015, ahead of second placed Stuart Bingham.

Meanwhile, Carter has gone top of the one-year ranking list which will determine who qualifies for the World Grand Prix and Players Championship later in the season. Perry has jumped to fourth thanks to his £40,000 runner-up prize.

This list only includes money earned this season. The top 32 after the German Masters will qualify for the World Grand Prix in Preston in February, then the top 16 after the Gibraltar Open will make it to the Players Championship in Llandudno in March.
