The first step is to gain a professional ranking. This can be done by winning certain tournaments or by accumulating enough points through consistent good performances. Once a player has a professional ranking, they can then enter professional tournaments.

Players who can consistently perform well at this level can hope to one day reach the very top of the game.

Snooker has been a popular sport for centuries, and the World Snooker Tour is where some of today’s best players compete against each other.
