Scene setter and rules

Always a highlight of the snooker season, this will be the 11th edition of the Shoot Out since it was re-established in 2011, and the fifth since it got ranking status.
Each of the one-frame matches will last 10 minutes and the shot clock will limit players to 15 seconds per shot for the first five minutes of each frame, and 10 seconds for the last five minutes. Fouls result in a ball in hand. If the Shot Clock beats you, there's a five-point penalty, or the value of the ball the player was on, if higher.

In the unlikely event of a tie, a blue ball shoot-out will determine the winner. A total of 21 centuries have been struck at the Shoot Out in its history, including three at last year's tournament, which were struck by Xiao Guodong, Chang Bingyu and Thor Chuan Leong. Thepchaiya Un-Nooh has the highest break in the event's history, 139.
The defending champion is Michael Holt, who overcame Zhou Yuelong in last year's final. The likes of White and Doherty, two of the sport's greats, will be hoping to roll back the years. There will also be a considerable amount of intrigue around Kenna, the women's number four, who will be making her professional debut. The other woman in the draw is 12-time world champion Evans.
