The World Snooker Welsh Open Snooker 2022 began on Monday 28th February. BetVictor is proud to once again be sponsoring this top international snooker event, now celebrating its 30th year.
This year’s event is hosted at the Celtic Manor Resort, in Newport which sees the cream of Snooker stardom competing for a top prize of £70,000, from a total pool of £405,000.
But as snooker fans know, the road to victory is never so straightforward. Last year’s epic final saw Jordan Brown defy all odds to beat veteran Ronnie O’Sullivan and secure his first ever title. Can Brown retain his 2021 title, or will 2022 be the year Ronnie’s Revenge?
Whatever the outcome, you can expect plenty of intense battles and more potential upsets ahead of the final on March 6th.
Plus, as proud sponsors, BetVictor brings you behind the scenes with special coverage of the event itself, including exclusive player interviews. And, of course, you can also avail of our full range of Snooker Betting markets, including the latest Welsh Open Betting and Odds.

History of the Welsh Open
The Welsh Open celebrates its 30th year this year. The inaugural event back in 1992 saw Stephen Hendry take home the first victory. The Scotsman would go on to appear in four more finals, winning three.
His fellow countryman John Higgins holds the current record for most wins, winning 5. Behind him in the rankings is England’s Ronnie O’Sullivan with 4 wins.
Who Won the Welsh Open Snooker 2021?
O’Sullivan’s hopes for a fifth win at the tournament were dashed in a shock victory for Jordan Brown last year. The Northern Irishman earned his first ranked title, beating O’Sullivan by just one point.
Both men will return to the Celtic Manor Resort in Newport for the second year in a row with the hope of winning the top prize.
What is the Prize Money for the Welsh Open Snooker?
The top prize for winning the Welsh Open is £70,000 with £30,000 going to the runners-up. The total prize pool for the event is £405,000.
