THE 2021 UK Snooker Championship is underway.
And former world number one Judd Trump is favourite at 10/3 to lift the trophy for a second time in his career, according to odds supplied by 888 Sport.
The tournament, which runs from November 23 until December 5, has returned to York having been played behind closed doors in Milton Keynes last year.
Trump, 32, enters the competition as the frontrunner having recently claimed his first Champion of Champions title with a 10-4 victory over John Higgins.
Neil Robertson is next in the betting market at 4/1 to clinch his FOURTH title.
The Australian, ranked fourth in the world, is the current holder having beaten Judd Trump 10-9 in last year’s epic final.
Ronnie O’Sullivan is available at 5/1.
‘The Rocket’ has six world titles to his name, and seven more UK Championships but recently revealed that he now treats snooker like a “holiday”.

O’Sullivan told SunSport: “I switched off a long time ago.
“I see myself as a pundit first. I’ve got my property company. I do a lot of stuff in an ambassadorial role as a face for companies. I see that as my main job now.
“I don’t really see myself as a snooker player any more. It’s counter-productive in many ways. Financially and time-wise, it doesn’t make sense. But I still want it in my life, if only for fun purposes.
“Snooker is a platform, something I enjoy, have fun with it. I refuse to take it seriously.”
World champion Mark Selby will look to win his third title and is priced at 6/1 to do the business in York.
Elsewhere John Higgins is available at 8/1 with Kyren Wilson and Mark Allen available at 16/1 and 20/1 respectively.
