Ronnie is due to play Sam Baird, who is a very capable player, in the last 64 and, should he win, he would face David Gilbert or Stuart Carrington next, none of them being easy opponents. And Judd Trump could be waiting for him in the last 16 … Tricky start of the season this!

Ronnie’s first match is scheduled on Thursday, 17 August 2017, at 2 pm local time … which is very early morning UK time.

They have also published an updated version of the 2017/18 season calendar. Changes are marked in red.
