The defending champion was Ding Junhui, who defeated Stephen Maguire 10–6 in the 2019 final. However, Ding lost 5–6 to David Grace in the second round.

Both Kyren Wilson and Stuart Bingham made maximum breaks in the first round of the event.[1][2] On 28 November, Trump became the fourth player to make 750 career centuries, during his last-64 match against Dominic Dale.[3] Later in the tournament, on 4 December, Robertson also completed his 750th century break in his quarter-final defeat of Mark Selby.[4]

Neil Robertson won the title beating Judd Trump 10–9 in the final. At 9–9 Trump missed a simple final pink when only needing the pink and black to win the title, Robertson then potted the pink to win his 3rd UK Championship.
