About this programme

Coverage of the second most prestigious ranking tournament on the calendar gets under way at the Barbican Centre in York, with John Higgins v Rory McLeod and Ding Junhui v Mark Davis in the best-of-11-frames first-round matches. Last year's final was a thrilling encounter, as Higgins came back from 9-5 down to defeat Mark Williams 10-9 and win the title for the third time.
