A weekend of fast and furious snooker sees 128 players do battle in the Snooker Shoot-Out, and you can watch the action streamed live online.
The unique shot-clock competition features a bumper field of professionals and amateurs competing for the £32,000 top prize at the Watford Colosseum.
The Shoot-Out was made a full world ranking event in 2017, with prize money from the first six stagings having previously not counted towards the Order of Merit.
Michael Georgiou claimed last year’s title, his first career ranking triumph, after defeating Graeme Dott by 67 points to 56 in the final.
The general rules of the Shoot-Out are the same as those in a traditional game of snooker, although there are several key variants that epitomise the uniqueness of the event.
These include all frames being capped at ten minutes, with the player scoring the most points declared the winner.
Players will lag to decide who breaks off and there will be a shot clock in operation, with the competitors having 15 seconds to complete each shot over the first five minutes of the frame, while just 10 seconds will be allocated during the last five minutes.
Players must hit a cushion or pot a ball with each they shot play otherwise it will be deemed a foul which, along with any other infringement, will result in the opponent being awarded the cue ball-in-hand.
The tournament runs from February 21-24 at the Watford Colosseum, with all matches also available to watch live on desktop or mobile devices in the UK and various other regions.
