Information about this Player Profiles page

The list began with the top 16 members at the start of the 2022/23 snooker season, and it will subsequently be updated with former top 16 members and ranking event winners currently on the Main Tour. Other professionals – both active and inactive – will later be added.

The new SHQ Stars system for player ratings will additionally be applied to each of the player profiles.

As there have been various different tour structures and ranking systems in operation since the modern era for the sport began, no system will be perfect.

However, there have been five relatively consistent ways to rank a player’s achievements over the last several decades – becoming world champion, number of ranking titles won, performances in triple crown events, highest ranking, and longevity in the top 16 (or Masters appearances).

Thus, the SHQ Stars for player ratings are based on those standards.
