The 2022 Cazoo Masters runs from January 9-16, 2022. The championship takes place at Alexandra Palace in London, England. The event is the second in the 2022 snooker Triple Crown, which is not to be confused with the Triple Crown in horse race betting. Yan Bingtao of China is the defending champion. He defeated John Higgins of Scotland 10-8 in the 2021 final, which took place in January 2021. The win was Bingtao’s first Triple Crown event title. With the victory, Bingtao became the first Masters debutant to win the title since Mark Selby did so in 2008. Bingtao is the second Chinese player to win the event. Ding Junhui won the title in 2011.

Be sure to look at the odds and picks for the 2021 Cazoo UK Snooker Championship.

A Possible Rematch

Bingtao had a nice run in 2021. The 20-year-old entered the Masters as the No. 12 seed (of 16 players). In his run to the final he defeated Neil Robertson (No. 4), Stephen Maguire (No. 9) and Stuart Bingham (No. 1) before topping Higgins in the final. Bingtao was one of four players to have four or more century breaks during play. Even though he topped four higher seeded players on his way to the title in 2021, oddsmakers have Bingtao in the middle of the pack for a repeat performance in 2022. He is listed at +2000 via BetUs.
