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 Asian Confederation of Billiards Sports. Forty-eight players were divided in 8 double-elimination groups. The top four from each group moved into the knock-out stage.[2] 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.[2] The event wasn't held in the 2011/2012 season,[3] 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.[4]
