The fourth ranking event of the season sees the titans of the baize head to Guangzhou for the China Championship, and you can follow all the latest results and fixtures here.

The lucrative major features 64 players battling it out for £700,000 in prize money, with the winner pocketing £150,000.

The majority of the field came through the qualifying round in Preston to book their place in the main event, with the exception of 16 players, whose preliminary matches were held over to the venue.

Belgium's Luca Brecel is the defending champion after he defeated Shaun Murphy 10-5 in last year's final to claim his first ranking title.

Brecel is joined in the line-up by World Champion Mark Williams, world number one Mark Selby, four-time World Champion John Higgins and home favourite Ding Junhui.

The likes of Judd Trump, Mark Allen, Neil Robertson and Barry Hawkins will also have their sights set on the big prize.

The tournament runs from September 24-30 at the Guangzhou Tianhe Sports Centre, with all matches up to and including the Quarter-Finals contested over the best of nine frames, Semi-Finals best of 11 and the final best of 19.
