The top eight players on the one-year ranking list head to Llandudno this week, for one of the highlights of the snooker calendar – the Tour Championship.
Neil Robertson won the event last season in some style, beating Ronnie O’Sullivan in the final and they are both back this year for another crack at the title.
Judd Trump, John Higgins, Zhao Xintong, Luca Brecel, Mark Williams and Mark Allen make up the field at Venue Cymru, with all eight fighting for the huge £150,000 top prize and momentum as they head to the World Championship in Sheffield in April.
