After the light entertainment of the Snooker Shoot Out, we have a more conventional ranking event starting on Wednesday, in the form of the German Masters from Berlin. We’ve previewed the event and given you our suggested bets for the tournament.

German Masters 2023 Tips

Bet on the German Masters with Betfred here


The German Masters originally began life as the German Open back in 1995 and changed to an invitational format as the Masters in 1998.

This is the 17th running of the event having been cancelled from 1999-2010.

The event was first held in Frankfurt and then moved to Osnabruck and Bingen Am Rhein.

Since its restart in 2011, the host venue has been the Tempodrom in Berlin, with the only exception in 2021, where it was played in Milton Keynes due to COVID.

There have been several multiple winners of this event including John Higgins, Ronnie O’Sullivan, Mark Williams and Judd Trump, who have all won it twice.

Defending champion Zhao Xintong is currently suspended from the professional snooker tour, as part of the match fixing investigation and will not line up here as a result.

Only four of the top 16 in the world qualified to line up in Germany –  Luca Brecel (14/1), Jack Lisowski (4/1), Neil Robertson (9/4) and Kyren Wilson (6/1).

The only previous winners lining up this week are Wilson and Ali Carter (9/1).

The tournament runs from Wednesday 1st to Sunday 5th February and will be broadcast live and exclusively on Eurosport.

Snooker Betting Odds

Jack Lisowski to win – 4/1

The 31-year-old Englishman is playing the best snooker of his career right now and can count himself extremely unfortunate not to have picked up a ranking win yet.

He has reached six ranking finals but has lost the lot, three times to Trump, twice to Robertson and once to Mark Selby, heady company indeed.

With a weakened field here and a favourable draw, where he could meet Jimmy White in the last 16, I can see Jackpot finally cashing in that debut title.

He made the semi finals at both the Masters and the UK Championship, with far stronger fields.

Luca Brecel each way (1/2 2 places) – 14/1

The world number 10 was one of only four top 16 players to qualify here and at 14/1 looks value.

Brecel won his 3rd ranking event at the Championship League and has played some good stuff this year, also reaching the final of the English Open.

Again in a weakened field, his name is one that stands out as an each-way option. A potential quarter final against Robertson looks crucial.
