Seedings

This is the current seeding list, updated after the 2017 European Masters. In every tournament the defending champion is the #1 seed, the world champion is the #2 seed and the rest are seeded according to the list below. Top 64 at season-end is secured a spot on next season's Tour. The top 8 in the season list (yellow) not already qualified will also earn cards. Those in green are safe with two-year cards. See also the official list at World Snooker. We have also stored the older lists.

R = World Ranking ; ± = Change from previous seeding
