Who is playing? Where are Ronnie O'Sullivan, John Higgins and Neil Robertson?

Four matches have been held over from qualifying, with defending champion Fan Zhengyi, plus Mark Selby and Judd Trump, playing on the opening day on August 16.
World No. 1 Ronnie O'Sullivan is not playing due to medical reasons and has been replaced in the draw by Luke Simmonds.
In qualifying, both Zhang Anda and Hossein Vafaei made 147 breaks, while John Higgins and Mark Allen failed to qualify. Higgins lost to Scott Donaldson, while Farakh Ajaib defeated Allen.
Neil Robertson opted out of the early action of the new snooker season, choosing to skip the Championship League, European Masters and British Open. "I've got a young family now so I don't need to play in every tournament these days," explained Robertson.
The last European Masters was held earlier this year in February, with Zhengyi stunning O’Sullivan 10-9 in the final.
