Most of the biggest and most recognisable snooker names of the last thirty years have featured in Welsh Open finals.
An event that began 31 years ago, it now stands as the third-longest continuously running ranking event on the calendar.
Only the World Snooker Championship and the UK Championship have been a permanent fixture on the schedule for more years, in addition to the invitational Masters.

More than half of the Welsh Open snooker finals have taken place in Newport; the competition was staged at the Newport Centre between 1992 and 1998, and again from 2005 to 2014.
Cardiff briefly hosted the tournament either side of the millennium between 1999 and 2004, and the capital city was once again the permanent home from 2015 up until 2020.
The Welsh Open returned to Newport in 2021, but this year’s edition is taking place in an entirely different location at the Venue Cymru in Llandudno.
The 2023 Welsh Open got under way on Monday, with all the usual heavy hitters among those bidding for the £80,000 top prize.
The event has been won by 17 players in total with the majority hailing from either England or Scotland, and just one from Wales itself.
Eight competitors have emerged victoriously on more than one occasion, with five triumphs currently standing as the current overall record.
All 31 Welsh Open finals have been contested over the best of 17 frames, and nine of those have lasted the full distance – including four in five seasons between 2004 and 2008.
As part of the Home Nations series since 2017, the contenders now compete each year for the beautiful Ray Reardon Trophy.
There have been 27 different Welsh Open finalists so the question is, can you name them all?
