Welcome to Allen vs Evans: The grudge match!
Good evening and welcome to our live blog for the British Open first round encounter between bitter rivals Mark Allen and Reanne Evans.
This is set to be one of the tastiest matches of the tournament, as there is no love lost between the exes.
The pair learned they would be sqauring off last month, when they were drawn together.
Evans, who was made an MBE last year for services to the women’s game, is the most successful female snooker player of all time, while Mark ‘The Pistol’ Allen has been a familiar face on the tour for more than 15 years, after choosing to concentrate on snooker instead of pursuing a career as a footballer.
The pair’s worst nightmare has come true and we will document all the action right here, stay tuned!
