The tournament runs from February 13 to 19 at the Motorpoint Arena in Cardiff, with 128 player battling for the Ray Reardon Trophy. It’s the last of the season’s Coral Home Nations series.

Ronnie is the Defending Champion and seed n°1 and he’s been dealt a very tough opener: he will face Tom Ford on Tuesday 1pm (UK time). Should he win this match, he could face Mark Davis in the next, and possibly Fergal O’Brien in the last 32 … who’s saying top seeds have easy draws?
