Coral World Grand Prix Line Up Confirmed


The field of 32 players for next week’s Coral World Grand Prix at Cheltenham Racecourse has now been confirmed.

The final qualifying event is this week’s BetVictor German Masters, and at the start of the tournament in Berlin there were 19 players outside the top 32 of the one-year ranking list who could have earned a place in Cheltenham with a deep run.

The players heading to Cheltenham are (the seeing order could change depending on results over the final weekend in Berlin):

Judd Trump
Shaun Murphy
Mark Selby
