The 2013 Australian Goldfields Open was a professional ranking snooker tournament that took place between 8–14 July 2013 at the Bendigo Stadium in Bendigo, Australia. It was the second ranking event of the 2013/2014 season.[1]

Michael White attempted a maximum break in his qualifying match against Nigel Bond, but he missed the final black at 140.[2] With this he became the fifth player along with Mark Selby, Ken Doherty, Barry Pinches and Robin Hull to do so in a professional tournament.[3]

Shaun Murphy criticised his fellow professionals after eight of the top 16 players and reigning world champion Ronnie O'Sullivan decided not to register for the event.[4] Another top 16 player, Ding Junhui, withdrew from the tournament at the last minute due to a passport issue.[5]

Barry Hawkins was the defending champion,[6][7] but he lost 4–5 against Tom Ford in the last 16.[8]

Marco Fu won his second ranking title by defeating Neil Robertson 9–6 in the final.[9][10]

Prize fund[edit]

The total prize money of the event was raised to $445,000 from the previous year's $435,000. The breakdown of prize money for this year is shown below:[11]
