2009-10 United States Snooker Association Rankings
The United States Snooker Association rankings are calculated from players' performances in the two previous United States National Snooker Championships.

Jian Qiang Wang

Players are awarded ranking points for reaching the round of last-16, with the points increasing in value as a player progresses through the Knockout rounds. In addition, bonus points are awarded to players in accordance to their respective qualification place from the Group phase.

The current number one ranked player is Jian Qiang Wang of New York (pictured right), whose consistent performances have seen him reach the final and semifinals of the 2008 & 2009 Championships respectively.

The reigning Champion, Ahmed Aly El Sayed, having only played in last year's event, is currently ranked number four.

A review of the ranking system will take place following the Championship, where changes in how the rankings are calculated may be made.
