Snookers All-time Top 10 Century Makers

Stephen Hendry - Snooker's Top Century Break maker in history
The snooker season is well and truly already in full swing but this week see's the first full ranking event of the year out in China, the Wuxi Classic. It started Monday and already the defending champion, Ricky Walden, has been eliminated by a resurgent Jimmy White.

With the new flat draw structure whereby the top 16 are no longer protected until the Last 32 stage we could see a vast number of results not going the way of the more recognised professionals.

Whilst I was having my coffee the other morning it got me thinking though who the top 10 professional players are if you consider century breaks made in professional tournaments.

I have done a bit of research and thanks to @CueTracker_Ron came up with the answers.

The top 10 (currently) all time century break makers are listed below:

  1. Stephen Hendry - 768
  2. Ronnie O'Sullivan - 691
  3. John Higgins - 514
  4. Steve Davis - 345
  5. Jimmy White - 318
  6. Ken Doherty - 315
  7. Peter Ebdon - 303
  8. Ding Junhui - 301
  9. Mark Williams - 293
  10. Mark Selby - 292
It is probably not surprising to find 7 out of the 10 have all been World Champion on at least one occasion. Are there any surprise names on that list for you? Let us know in the comments.
