Ronnie O'Sullivan made the 109th official maximum break during his last 16 match against Matthew Selt. This was O'Sullivan's 13th official 147 break and also the fourth maximum break in the 2014/2015 season[2] and the third time in a row that a maximum was made in a UK Championship.

Neil Robertson was the defending champion,[3] but he lost 5–6 against Graeme Dott in the last 16. This result led to Ding Junhui becoming the first Asian player to reach the world number one ranking.[4]

Ronnie O'Sullivan won his fifth UK Championship and his 27th ranking title by defeating Judd Trump 10–9 in the final.[5][6] Trump had trailed 4-9 at one point during the evening session but fought back with 5 consecutive frames to level at 9-9 before O’Sullivan won the deciding frame.
