Shanghai Masters Snooker 2018 Live Scores and Tournament Schedule

The Shanghai Masters returns with a new-look format in 2018, and you can follow all the latest results and fixtures here.

For the first time, the tournament is classed as an invitational as opposed to a ranking event, featuring an elite field of 24 players competing for £725,000 in prize money.

The top 16 players in the world rankings following the World Open are joined by the next four highest ranked Chinese players, two players from the CBSA China Tour and two from China's Amateur Masters series. 

Ronnie O'Sullivan is the defending champion after he defeated Judd Trump 10-3 in last year's final, and 'The Rocket' will return to Shanghai to make his first competitive appearance of the 2018/19 season.

O'Sullivan is one of the top seven seeds who receive a bye into the Second Round - those players also include Mark Selby, Mark Williams, John Higgins, Judd Trump, Ding Junhui and Barry Hawkins.

Shaun Murphy withdrew from the competition for personal reasons, meaning Stuart Bingham receives a bye into the Quarter-Finals.

The tournament runs from September 10-16 at the Regal International East Asia Hotel in Shanghai.

All matches up to and including the Quarter-Finals are to be contested over the best of 11 frames, with Semi-Finals best of 19 and the final best of 21.
