Welcome to neilrobertson.net, the official web site of Australian snooker professional Neil Robertson.
Winner of 11 professional titles in 7 years and with 11 wins from 16 televised finals, Neil shattered records by winning his first 9 televised finals in a row.
In 2010, Neil collected two professional titles: the World Championship and the World Open. He also joined an elite group of just 8 professional players (at the time) to have held the #1 world ranking, since rankings officially commenced in 1975.
In 2011, Neil added to his trophy cabinet with PTC6, the first professional tournament ever held in Poland, and PTC8 the inaugural Alex Higgins International Trophy held in Ireland.
In 2012, Neil claimed his first Masters title in January, becoming just the 11th professional player to have won both the World Championship and The Masters. He was also Runner-Up in the Grand Finals of the Players Tour Championship, claimed the ET2 title in Gdynia, Poland, and was Runner-Up in the inaugural International Championship in Chengdu, China.
In 2013, Neil was the Runner-Up at The Masters, Runner-Up at the PTC Grand Final, and won the China Open. Neil's first ranking victory in China also makes him the most successful professional from outside the UK, with 7 major ranking titles.

07 December 2012: Vale John McKay, 1937 - 2012
Our thoughts are with the family of John McKay (Henry John McKay) who passed away last night after a lengthy battle with cancer.
John was a Victorian champion snooker player, and an administrator and organiser of cue sports in Victoria. He played a key role in the development of opportunities for many junior players, including Neil and his brother Marc. John was a legend of the sport on and off the table, and will be dearly missed.
