World Snooker Rankings 2012/13: Seedings Revision Three Round-Up

Little over a month since the season’s previous seedings revision, the UK Championship marks the third cut-off of the season, as Mark Selby replaces Judd Trump at the head of the rankings, while there have been various other changes up and down the list.

This seeding list will now be used for all of the remaining tournaments this season, with the exception of the 2013 World Championship.

As ever, I have also now produced the new projected seedings list, which will eventually determine the seedings for the Crucible. You may notice that the table is a slightly different format this time, as you can now highlight particular rows by hovering your cursor on the table, whilst you can now sort the players by different columns.

Unfortunately the sorting appears to have a mind of its own in places, but I will see what I can do about that!

A final point to note is that at this stage I have not yet added minimum points earned for the PTC Finals and will do so once the 32 players involved have been confirmed, following the Munich Open.
