The Snooker Shoot-Out returns for another fast and frenetic staging, and the action is available to watch live on desktop or mobile devices.

The unique shot-clock competition features 128 players competing for a record £50,000 top prize at the Watford Colosseum.

The Snooker Shoot-Out was made a ranking event in 2017, with prize money from the first six stagings having previously not counted towards the Order of Merit.

Thepchaiya Un-Nooh is the defending champion after claiming his first ranking title 12 months ago with victory over Michael Holt in the final.

No player has ever captured the Shoot-Out title on more than one occasion since it began in 2011, while only 16 players have registered a century break.

The general rules of the Shoot-Out are the same as those in a traditional game of snooker, although there are several key variants that epitomise the uniqueness of the event.

These include all frames being capped at ten minutes, with the player scoring the most points declared the winner.

Players will lag to decide who breaks off and there will be a shot clock in operation, with the competitors having 15 seconds to complete each shot over the first five minutes of the frame, while just 10 seconds will be allocated during the last five minutes.

Players must hit a cushion or pot a ball with each they shot play otherwise it will be deemed a foul which, along with any other infringement, will result in the opponent being awarded the cue ball-in-hand.

The tournament runs from February 20-23 at the Watford Colosseum, with a live stream of all matches available online in the UK and various other regions.
