Paul Hunter Classic
The tournament is named in honour of three-time Masters Champion Paul Hunter, whose life was tragically cut short in 2006 aged 27 after a battle with cancer.
Formerly a ranking event between 2016 and 2018, the Paul Hunter Classic has now been reverted back to non-ranking status as of 2019 and reduced from a field of 128 players to just 16.
Kyren Wilson is the defending champion, having defeated Peter Ebdon 4-2 in last year’s final.
This year’s line-up features a mixture of amateurs and professionals, with defending champion Wilson the highest ranked player in action, joined by the likes of Barry Hawkins, David Gilbert, Luca Brecel and Gary Wilson.
The £20,000 tournament takes place from August 24-25.
