It’s a little difficult to get into this season as, even more so perhaps than in the previous couple of years, there is a distinct stop-start feeling.

It’s something that I personally can’t stand and think, in many ways, that it’s damaging to the sport to have a campaign shaped in this fashion.

One snooker tournament we can look forward to this month is the well-established ranking event, the Shanghai Masters.

First held in 2007, it serves as the second longest existing tournament staged in China, where an unquestionable boom has taken place over the course of the last decade.

In fact, the inaugural ranking event in the Far East nation was hosted as far back as 1990.

There have been 33 ranking events in China since then, with well over a dozen different names etched onto the various trophies.

The question is, can you name them?
