The 2010 12bet.com World Open was a professional ranking snooker tournament held between 18–26 September 2010 at the S.E.C.C. in Glasgow, Scotland. This was the first time that the World Open was sponsored by 12bet.com.[1]

Ronnie O'Sullivan made the 73rd official maximum break during his match against Mark King. This was O'Sullivan's record 10th official 147,[2] however he had to be persuaded by referee Jan Verhaas to play the final black, as he became aware that there was no distinct prize money for a maximum break in the tournament and planned to end his break at 140. There was only a £4,000 prize for the highest break of the tournament.[3]

Neil Robertson was the defending champion, and he retained his title by defeating Ronnie O'Sullivan 5–1 in the final.[4]
