With the new flat draw structure whereby the top 16 are no longer protected until the Last 32 stage we could see a vast number of results not going the way of the more recognised professionals.
Whilst I was having my coffee the other morning it got me thinking though who the top 10 professional players are if you consider century breaks made in professional tournaments.
I have done a bit of research and thanks to @CueTracker_Ron came up with the answers.
The top 10 (currently) all time century break makers are listed below:
- Stephen Hendry - 768
- Ronnie O'Sullivan - 691
- John Higgins - 514
- Steve Davis - 345
- Jimmy White - 318
- Ken Doherty - 315
- Peter Ebdon - 303
- Ding Junhui - 301
- Mark Williams - 293
- Mark Selby - 292
It is probably not surprising to find 7 out of the 10 have all been World Champion on at least one occasion. Are there any surprise names on that list for you? Let us know in the comments.
