The Players Tour Championship 2012/2013 – Finals (also known as the 2013 Dafabet Players Tour Championship Grand Finals for sponsorship purposes[1]) was a professional ranking snooker tournament that took place between 12–17 March 2013 at the Bailey Allen Hall in Galway, Ireland. It was the ninth ranking event of the 2012/2013 season.[2]

Stephen Lee was the defending champion,[3] but he couldn't compete due to his suspension from professional snooker.[4]
