The most prestigious invitational in snooker returns as 16 elite stars vie for Masters glory at Alexandra Palace, and you can follow all the latest results and fixtures here.
The star-studded tournament sees 16 of the world’s top-ranked cueists competing from January 12-19 for £725,000 in prize money and the iconic Paul Hunter Trophy.
An ever-present on the snooker calendar since 1975, the Masters has provided some of the most iconic moments in the sport’s history and its 46th staging looks set to be as enthralling as ever.
Judd Trump returns to the capital as defending champion following his stunning 10-4 victory over rival Ronnie O’Sullivan in last year’s final.
O’Sullivan holds the record for the most Masters titles, having won the tournament seven times, but will not be competing for an eighth crown in 2020 after opting not to enter.
O’Sullivan has been replaced in the line-up by world number 17 Ali Carter, while Mark Selby is on the hunt for a fourth Masters title and John Higgins and Mark Williams have both lifted this trophy on two previous occasions.
Other former champions in this year’s line-up include Shaun Murphy, winner here in 2015, and 2011 champion Ding Junhui, while David Gilbert is the sole debutant in the field.
The tournament runs from January 12-19 at London’s Alexandra Palace, with all matches up to and including the Semi-Finals contested over the best of 11 frames and the final best of 19.
