The Six-red World Championship (also known as the SangSom Six-red World Championship for sponsorship purposes) is a six-red snooker tournament, played with the six colour balls and six reds. Stephen Maguire is the reigning champion.

History

The event was first held in the 2008/2009 season, and was known as the Six-red Snooker International. The event was organised by the Asian Confederation of Billiards Sports. Forty-eight players were divided in 8 round-robin groups. The top four from each group moved into the knock-out stage.[1] In 2009 the event was renamed the Six-red World Grand Prix. In 2010, it replaced another event as the official six red snooker world championship, after the previous event—held once in 2009— was discontinued.[1] The event wasn't held in the 2011/2012 season,[2] but it returned for the 2012/2013 season with the backing of the World Professional Billiards and Snooker Association. The event has been held at the Montien Riverside Hotel in Bangkok, Thailand since 2008.[3]
