The Paul Hunter Classic takes centre stage in Germany this weekend and you can watch the action streamed exclusively live online.

The tournament is named in honour of three-time Masters Champion Paul Hunter, whose life was cut short in 2006 aged 27 after a battle with cancer.

A vast field of 128 players will battle it out over three days of action at the Stadthalle in Fürth for the £20,000 top prize.

Michael White is the defending champion after he defeated Shaun Murphy 4-2 in last year’s final to claim only his second career ranking title.

White is bidding to become the first player since Mark Selby in 2012 to successfully retain the title, though three-time champion Selby is among a clutch of star names missing from this year’s line-up.

Shaun Murphy, back-to-back champion in 2008 and 2009, is the highest-ranked player in the field, ahead of Masters finalist Kyren Wilson.

The likes of Luca Brecel, Jack Lisowski and Xiao Guodong will also have their sights set on glory in the third ranking event of the 2018/19 season.

The main stages of the tournament run from August 24-26, with selected matches from each session available to watch exclusively live on desktop or mobile devices in the UK and various other regions.
