The enormous prize money won by Ronnie O’Sullivan, leaving Hendry, Trump, and Carter in the dust

Over his illustrious career, Ronnie O’Sullivan has won an unbelievable sum of prize money.

Ronnie O’Sullivan consistently outperforms his snooker rivals not just in Triple Crown titles. Over the course of his 32-year professional career, the “Rocket,” who is currently regarded by many as the best player to ever pick up a cue, has also amassed an incredible amount of prize money.



In his career, O’Sullivan has won 41 ranking titles. This season, he earned his ninth UK Championship and Masters championship. And when he goes for No. 8 at the Crucible in April and May, he will be the overwhelming favorite because he has to win one more World Championship to pass joint record-holder Stephen Hendry.


The 48-year-old’s achievements, according to CueTracker, have helped him earn a career income of almost £14 million, or £13,957,734, to be precise. Despite enjoying a remarkable career of his own, former opponent Hendry, who earned £8,804,081, trailed behind him.

In fact, he isn’t even the top-ranked Scottish player in the rankings. Hendry’s earnings place him third, behind fellow countryman John Higgins, who has earned £9,631,769 and is still playing professional snooker.


Judd Trump, who is valued at £7,212,954 and is considered one of the best players of his time, is in sixth place. When O’Sullivan sees competitor Ali Carter lie down in 17th place, he might allow himself a sardonic smile.


This month at the Alexandra Palace, the world No. 1 defeated Carter in a tense Masters final that left Carter accusing his opponent of “snotting on the floor” in an attempt to act in an unsportsmanlike manner. Following a fierce verbal exchange, O’Sullivan questioned the character of the runner-up and called him a “nightmare” to play against.
