Snooker - European Masters

At the height of the Snooker boom it was decided to take a ranking tournament into mainland Europe for the first time. The European Open was born in 1989 in Deauville, France.  
Further editions were staged in Lyon, Rotterdam, Tongeren and Antwerp (three times) and Valletta (twice) before it left the circuit from 1998 to 2001. In 2002 it was revived in Valletta and then moved to Torquay before Portomaso took on the mantle in 2004.  
From 2005-08 it was called the Malta Cup, and was demoted to non-ranking status in the last of those events before again being banished from the calendar.
In 2016, the event was re-introduced, under the new title of the European Masters, staged in Bucharest, the capital city of Romania. In 2017 it was shifted to its present venue, De Soeverein in Lommel, Belgium.
