World Open Snooker 2018 Live Scores and Tournament Schedule

Defending champion Ding Junhui in action (credit: Naomi Baker/Getty Images)

The second ranking event of the season sees the stars of the sport head to Yushan for the 2018 World Open, and you can follow all the latest results and fixtures here.

The £700,000 tournament features 64 of the world's top players in action as they vie for the first major silverware of the season in China.

The vast majority of the field sealed their place in the lucrative main event via the qualifying round in Preston last month, while eight matches have been held over to the venue.

Ding Junhui is the defending champion after he defeated Kyren Wilson 10-3 in last year's final to claim his first ranking title since the Shanghai Masters a year earlier.

Ding leads a long list of Chinese hopefuls aiming to thrive on home soil, including Liang Wenbo, Xiao Guodong, Lyu Haotian and Zhou Yuelong. 
Neil Robertson is looking to press on from his triumph in the Riga Masters last month, while World Champion Mark Williams is out to get his season up and running.

World number one Mark Selby warmed up for this event in style by winning the Haining Open over the weekend and will look to sustain that form, while Judd Trump, Barry Hawkins and former champion Mark Allen are among the other key contenders.

The tournament runs from August 6-12 in Yushan, China. All matches up to and including the Quarter-Finals are contested over the best of nine frames, with Semi-Finals best of 11 and the final best of 19.
