Masters Snooker heads to Milton Keynes in 2021 and you can follow the latest results and match schedules here.
The star-studded tournament sees the world’s top 16 cueists competing from January 10-17 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, but its 47th staging is set to be somewhat unique.
Due to current restrictions, the 2021 Betfred Masters will be held behind closed doors at the Marshall Arena in Milton Keynes, as opposed to in front of a packed crowd at Alexandra Palace.
Stuart Bingham is the defending champion after he defeated Ali Carter 10-8 in last year’s final.
Ronnie O’Sullivan holds the record for the most Masters titles, having won the tournament seven times, and returns to the line-up after skipping last year’s event.
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 2015 winner Shaun Murphy and 2011 champion Ding Junhui, while Yan Bingtao and Thepchaiya Un-Nooh are making their Masters debuts.
The tournament runs from January 10-17, with all matches up to and including the Semi-Finals contested over the best of 11 frames and the final best of 19.
