Mark Williams secured his place in the Championship League Snooker Winners’ Group with a 3-0 Group Four final victory over Mark Selby.

The former World Champion will now join Ronnie O’Sullivan, Judd Trump and Stephen Maguire in the big-money Winners’ Group at the start of March.

Williams, who defends his World Seniors title in Preston this weekend, was 2-0 down to Graeme Dott in his group semi-final, but a 129 break saw the Welshman keep his hopes alive and he took the final two frames of the match to land a place in the final.

Selby had seen off Australian Neil Robertson in his semi-final, with a top break of 79 helping the Leicester cueman to a 3-1 victory.

Taking place at Crondon Park Golf Club in Essex, Championship League Snooker features seven players with the winner moving forward to the final all-winners group and the bottom two players leaving the competition.

Robertson, Dott and fifth-placed player Ricky Walden will be joined in Group Five, which commences on Monday, February 22, by David Gilbert, Mark Davis and Kyren Wilson.

The Championship League Snooker event is a venture between Matchroom Sport and Perform where 25 of the game’s elite players compete with all matches broadcast on a host of betting websites.

Each group features seven players with each man playing the other six once in a round-robin basis. Every match is the best of five and the winner gains one point with the loser getting zero.

At the end of the league phase the top four advances to that group’s semi-finals where the two winners meet in the final and the winner advances to the Winners’ Group in March.

The losing finalist, two losing semi-finalists and player finishing fifth move into the next group where they are joined by three new players and the process is repeated.

Group Five commences at midday on Monday 22nd February. Live scoring can be found at www.worldsnooker.com
