Last year’s Coral Cup winner and five-time World Champion Ronnie O’Sullivan kicks the tournament off at 7pm on Monday evening in a blockbuster meeting with David Gilbert. Defending champion and world number one Judd Trump gets his campaign underway against Li Hang at 7pm on Tuesday night.

Wednesday afternoon’s 1pm session sees two intriguing first round ties, with World Champions colliding when John Higgins faces Stuart Bingham, while Kyren Wilson and Jack Lisowski meet in a contest between the world’s two highest ranked players under the age of 30.

Should Ronnie win his first match, he will play again on Wednesday evening at 7 pm, against Mark Allen or Liang Wenbo.

  1. Hard to know whether to look forward to Ronnie’s match, given that he might just show up and bash balls around and then go home early.

    On a related-note, Ronnie has a 6-0 career record against David Gilbert, including 4-0 in real events.

    • We-ll see but he has not been “bashing the balls around” in any recent event. He played properly and rather well in Belfast, York and Glasgow, each time losing narrowly to the eventual winner.
