Snooker’s new Evergrande China Championship will have a top prize of £200,000, the biggest ever for a tournament outside the UK.
The event runs from November 1st to 5th and it will be staged in the city of Guangzhou in the Guangdong Province of South East China.
This year it will be a 16-man non-ranking invitation tournament, with the top ten in the world rankings invited, along with the next four-players from the separate one-year ranking list, and the field to be made up by two players nominated by the China Billiards and Snooker Association (CBSA).
The total prize money will be £650,000, with first round losers to receive £15,000, and the winner to bank £200,000.
The winner will also earn a place in the Champion of Champions which runs the following week in Coventry.
For the following three years, it will become a world ranking event, contested by 128 players. Total prize money for the 2017 edition will be £700,000 with the winner’s cheque at £150,000.
