China Open (snooker)
The event was revived for the 2004/05 season due to the increasing popularily of snooker in China. To this extent, an extra wildcard round was included before the first round proper to allow for sixteen of the top Chinese players to showcase their abilities. It was the first ranking tournament to be played in Asia for three years.
The China Open was also a ranking tournament between 1995/96 and 2001/02, with a one season hiatus in 1997/98, played under the names of China International, Asian Classic and Thailand Classic.
