The 2011 Ladbrokes Mobile Masters was a professional non-ranking snooker tournament held between 9–16 January 2011 at the Wembley Arena in London, England. This was the first time that the Masters was sponsored by Ladbrokes.[1]

Mark Selby was the defending champion, but he lost in the first round 4–6 against Mark King.[2]

The tournament made history, as it was the first to feature two Asian players in the final.[3] Ding Junhui won in the final 10–4 against Marco Fu.[4][5]

Field[edit]

Defending champion Mark Selby was the number 1 seed with World Champion Neil Robertson seeded 2. The remaining places were allocated to players based on the latest world rankings (revision 2). Jamie Cope was making his debut in the Masters.
