PAUL HUNTER CLASSIC 2018:DRAW, SCHEDULE, RESULTS

The 2018 Paul Hunter Classic was a professional ranking snooker tournament that took place in August 2018 at the Stadthalle in Fürth, Germany. It was the third ranking event of the 2018/2019 season. The tournament is named in honour of former snooker professional, Paul Hunter.

Michael White was the defending champion, however he lost 1–4 to Zhang Anda in the last 32.

Kyren Wilson won his second ranking tournament, beating Peter Ebdon 4–2 in the final after Ebdon had taken a two-frame lead. Ebdon reached his 18th ranking final the day before his 48th birthday. It was his first ranking final since 2012. He was the oldest player to reach a ranking event final since 48-year-old Steve Davis reached the final of the 2005 UK Championship.

Michael Georgiou made the 140th official maximum break in the third frame of his last 128 match against Umut Dikme. It was Georgiou's first professional maximum break. Later on the same day Jamie Jones made the 141st official maximum break in the third frame of his last 64 match against Lee Walker. It was also Jones' first professional maximum break.

13 year old amateur Ben Mertens made his debut at a professional ranking tournament with a 4–1 win over Adam Stefanów. He then exited the tournament in the second round.


The 2018 Paul Hunter Classic ran from August 22 to 26. Kyren Wilson beat Peter Ebdon 4-2 in the final.

Michael White won the title in 2017, beating Shaun Murphy 4-2 in the final.

Staged at the Stadthalle venue in the town of Fürth near Nuremburg in Germany, the tournament brings together many of the top professional players with leading local amateurs. The Paul Hunter Classic, named after three-time Masters champion Hunter who died in 2006, started off as a pro-am in 2004 and became a European Tour event in 2010 and then a full world ranking event. Snooker has a growing following in Germany and fans come to Fürth from around the country to enjoy watching their heroes.
