The second-most prestigious snooker tournament begins this Saturday and returns to Alexandra Palace after a year of being held in Milton Keynes because of COVID-19 restrictions.

The players will be competing for the £750,000 prize pot, with the winner taking home a cool £250,000 to kickstart their 2022.

The tournament will be available to watch on BBC TV and BBC Red Button. There will also be opportunities to watch uninterrupted coverage on BBC iPlayer and the BBC Sport app.

Last year’s winner Yan Bingtao kicks off the tournament as he looks to defend his title. He has been drawn against Welshman Mark Williams. Also in the first round, seven-time Masters champion Ronnie O’Sullivan faces fellow Englishman Jack Lisowski.
