Allen claims top spot

Mark Allen has claimed top spot in the one-year ranking list after beating Neil Robertson to scoop the International Championship. The Northern Irishman sealed a 10-5 victory over Robertson, winning the £175,000 top prize and scooping the title in Daqing.

Sunday’s victory in China, which handed Allen – priced at 17.00 to win the Champion of Champions – the fourth ranking title of his career, has helped him to shoot up the one-year list.

Allen sat 21st prior to the final but his win over Robertson moves him up 20 places to top spot with £208,000, while Mark Selby is second with £193,000. Robertson was awarded £75,000 as runner-up and climbs up three places from seventh to fourth.

Jack Lisowski has been much more consistent this season and moves up from eighth to fifth, having earned £32,000 in China after reaching the last four. Matthew Stevens reached the semi-finals of a ranking event for the first time since 2013 and subsequently enjoyed the biggest climb from 81st to 26th.

The one-year list will be used to determine who qualifies for the Ladbrokes Series later in campaign, with the top 32 handed a spot in the Ladbrokes World Grand Prix in Cheltenham, while the top 16 go into the Ladbrokes Players Championship in Preston and the top eight earn a berth in the newly-formed Ladbrokes Tour Championship in Llandudno.
