Tour Vlog #4: Shanghai

Robertson Tops Centuries Chart

We’re three tournaments into the 2016/17 season and so far Neil Robertson has made the most centuries, with nine tons to his name.

Robertson won the Riga Masters at the start of the campaign and also reached the semi-finals of the World Open. However the Aussie has a long way to go to match the incredible record-breaking total of 103 centuries in a single season which he set in 2013/14.

Indian Open champion Anthony McGill is second on this season’s list with eight tons, while World Open runner-up Joe Perry has made seven. All players to have made four or more are listed below:

Neil Robertson 9
Anthony McGill 8
Joe Perry 7
John Higgins 6
Mark Williams 6
David Gilbert 5
Ali Carter 4
Xiao Guodong 4
John Astley 4
Anthony Hamilton 4
Thepchaiya Un-Nooh 4
Kurt Maflin 4

The magic figure of 147 hasn’t been registered so far this season, with the last maximum break coming from Fergal O’Brien in the Championship League in February.

The rolling prize for a 147 at a ranking event has jumped to £40,000 so that huge bonus will be on offer at the Paul Hunter Classic in Germany later this month.

The rolling prize for a 147 at qualifying events, meanwhile, will be £10,500 at the Shanghai Masters qualifiers in Barnsley.
