The Masters, formerly the Benson & Hedges Masters is a professional snooker tournament. Although not a ranking event, it is regarded as one of the most prestigious tournaments on the circuit, earning more prize money than any other tournament except the World Championship.

The tournament was first held in 1975 in London. Ten players were invited. The final was won by John Spencer, who beat Ray Reardon 9-8 to win 2000.

The event was sponsored by Benson & Hedges until 2003, but UK restrictions on tobacco advertising meant that it was without a sponsor the following year. In 2005, Rileys Club became sponsors of the event.
