STUART Bingham says he believes he has another 10 years left at the top of the game after winning his third tournament in a stand-out season...and he says he hasn’t finished yet.

The Vange snooker star won the Championship League event last week, after triumphing 3-2 against Mark Davis in the final at Stock’s Crondon Park.

It was Bingham’s third success of the season and pocketed him £28,500 to take his earnings this campaign to more than £200,000.

And he says he is confident of stretching his winning streak at the Wales Open this week, as he aims to beat his previous best season of 2011/12 where he also won three titles.

He beat Malaysian Thor Chuan Leong 4-3 in the first round in Wales yesterday.

“There is no limit to what I can achieve this season,” he said. “I always want to do well, but when I am on a winning run I am often able to get some good momentum in tournaments. I hope that is the case in Wales.

“I have won three tournaments this season and winning one more would make it my most successful season ever. Hopefully that will be at the Wales Open.

“I have been doing it for 25 years and I love it as much now as I ever have. The competitive edge in me is still strong and I believe I can keep going for another five or ten years.”

Having won the Shanghai Masters and Haining Open in the first half of the season, the 38-year-old says following those successes up in 2015 was important, particularly in a tournament he has struggled in in previous years.

Bingham added it was nice to win an Essex-based tournament, following his success abroad.

“It could have easily got away from me,” he admitted. “I was in a losing position several times in the tournament, but came through and I can’t help but think when the writing is on the trophy then it’s on the trophy!

“I have struggled in the competition in the past and it was nice to finally get through and get some wins. It gave me a massive boost ahead of the Welsh Open.

“It is only a 20-minute drive for me. It is good playing just down the road and I play golf there so it will be nice to go back and remember my win there in the coming weeks.

“I come into this competition in great form and when I am playing this well then I feel confident up against anyone.”

Bingham came agonisingly close to winning the Welsh Open two years ago, losing 9-8 to Stephen Maguire in the final, and says he wants to take the crown, having only made the quarter-finals last time out.

“I have good memories of playing in the Welsh Open and did particularly well a few years ago. Getting to the final was great but coming so close to winning and then losing was disappointing. Now I want to go one step better.”

Bingham recently qualified for the China Open next month and he admits the next two months will be extremely busy.

“The schedule is hectic,” he said. “From Wales, I go to Poland, then Blackpool, then Llandudno before heading to Thailand and then the China Open. And that is just in the next six weeks.

“But I love what I do and am excited for the challenge.”
