The 2021 UK Championship

12 December 2021 One Comment

The 2021 Uk Championship was played at the York Barbican from 23 November to 5 December 2021. Luca Brecel reached the final but was beaten by Zhao Xintong by 10-5. For the first time, neither of the finalists was ranked inside the top 16 at the start of the tournament and neither was from the UK or Ireland. It was also the first time since 2011 that the final was played between two played aged under 30.

This win put Luca on the verge of the top 16… narrowly missing on a spot in the 2022 Masters.

Neil Robertson was the defending champion but he was beaten by John Astley (6-2) in the first round.

Ali Carter exited the tournament in round 2 (last 64) losing to Noppon Saengkham (6-3) whilst Ding Junhui lost to Sam Craigie in the same round by the same score. Michael Holt also went out at that stage, beaten in a deciding frame by Andy Hicks.
Judd Trump went out in the last 32, losing by 6-3 to Matthew Selt.
