The German Masters is a professional ranking snooker tournament established in 1995.
The tournament features 32 players battling it out for £400,000 in prize money at Berlin’s Tempodrom – one of the most impressive venues on the circuit.
Two rounds of qualifying took place in Barnsley in December to determine the field.
The German Masters is the second event of the new four-part BetVictor European Series, following which the most successful player will pocket a £150,000 bonus.
Kyren Wilson claimed the German Masters title in 2019 but will not be on hand to defend the trophy after losing in the qualifying rounds in December.
Only Mark Williams has won this title on more than one occasion (2011 and 2018), while World Champion Judd Trump starts out as favourite to triumph here for the first time.
Neil Robertson leads the way in the European Series rankings after his European Masters victory in Austria, while John Higgins, Shaun Murphy and Ding Junhui will also look to challenge for glory.
The 2020 tournament runs from January 29 to February 2.
