The snooker bonanza began at the York Barbican on Saturday and runs until December 9. Every time a player hits the 100 mark, World Snooker's official charity Bluebell Wood, based in Sheffield, will receive a cash boost.

World Snooker Chairman Barry Hearn said: "This is a wonderful gesture from William Hill and hopefully it will add a huge amount to the money we are raising for Bluebell Wood this year. I want to see all the players going for big breaks and piling in the centuries."

William Hill Chief Marketing Officer Kristof Fahy said "Bluebell Wood does some unbelievable work and we're delighted to be able to help them out. Like Barry, We'll be cheering on every ton-plus break in the tournament."

After the first day of the tournament were already £2,250 out of pocket but are delighted to be helping out such a worthwhile cause. For more information on Bluebell Wood see

Punters can also benefit from the big breaks as for the remainder of the tournament we will also give away a total of £50 in free bets on twitter whenever a century break is scored.

When you see a century tweet us @williamhillnews with the name of the player and the hashtags #centurybreak #WHUKchamps and we'll give a £5 free bet to each of the first 10 valid tweets we receive.


The first 10 valid tweets received on our twitter feed after the century break is achieved will win a £5 free bet | A valid tweet will contain the @williamhillnews handle, the hashtags #centurybreak #WHUKchamps and the name of the player. Only one free bet can be won per person per day | Winners must have a valid William Hill Online account to receive the prize | Normal free bet rules apply. Free bet stakes are not included in any winnings | The decision of William Hill on the winners is final and not disputes will be entered into
