HistoryEdit

The event was introduced in the 2012/2013 season and was the fifth ranking event held in China.[2] It was named as the "first overseas 'major'", because the tournament had the same level of ranking points as the UK Championship.[3] With the change in the rankings system from points to prize money, the International Championship has the third highest prize fund and winner's cheque of any ranking event on the snooker calendar, behind the World and UK Championships, and the highest outside of the United Kingdom.[4][5] The 2012 edition ran from 28 October to 4 November in Chengdu, China, and it was won by Judd Trump, who defeated Neil Robertson 10–8 in the final.[6]
