CHAMPION OF CHAMPIONS: DRAW, SCHEDULE, RESULTS & ODDS

The full results from snooker's 2016 Champion of Champions, which took place from November 7-12 at Coventry's Ricoh Arena.

The 2016 edition of snooker's Champion of Champions took place from November 8-13 at Coventry's Ricoh Arena, as Neil Robertson attempted to defend his title.

Sixteen of the world's best players contested this non-ranking event - having qualified by winning various big tournaments throughout the year - and were split into four groups, with the winner of each advancing to the semi-final stages.

Here, you can look back at how the event unfolded with all the results.
