Eurosport ambassador Ronnie O’Sullivan headlines a star-studded field at The Masters this week, with LIVE coverage from Alexandra Palace on Eurosport.
The invitation only tournament is the one event of the season that does not follow the 128 player qualification process. It’s only open to the top 16 ranked players, which is why it’s often considered superior to the UK Championship.
O’Sullivan, who beat Barry Hawkins 10-1 in the final last year, enters as one of the favourites and will be targeting a seventh title, which would mean he surpasses Stephen Hendry as the most successful player in the history of this tournament.
Other names to look out for include world number one Mark Selby – a three-time winner – and John Higgins who enters the tournament in impressive form
Below are the fixtures for the opening round;
