Only the top 16 on the one-year ranking list are in the draw, so it’s an elite field of the best players of the season so far.

Zhao Xintong is the runaway rankings leader and number one seed, so he will face 16th seed Barry Hawkins in the first round. O’Sullivan is third on the list so will face 14th-placed Trump in a blockbuster clash.

Cazoo Masters champion Neil Robertson will be up against Kyren Wilson, while defending champion John Higgins will meet new BetVictor Shoot Out king Hossein Vafaei.

The tournament will be televised by ITV4 and a range of other broadcasters worldwide.

It’s a very long shot but Ronnie could be World number one again at the end of this event … he just needs to win it! Easy …

  1. Ronnie’s last 9 matches against Judd were in the SF or F. The last time they played as early as the Round of 16 was at the 2011 UK Championship…

    • In 2020 when Ronnie in the end did not make it to the Players, he was fighting for the 16th spot and would have played Trump who was #1 then on the one-year to list. Now Trump is just in the one-year top 16 and Ronnie still ends up against him. 😿☹️
