The British Open 2022 has proven to be an unpredictable rollercoaster with few big names left in the hunt to win the title in this fledgling season.

Mark Selby and Mark Allen are the last top-20 players in the mix at the quarter-final stage and will face each other today for a spot in an unusual final four.

This is a huge opportunity for the likes of Ryan Day and Jamie Jones to make the most of a depleted field at this stage of a big competition.

Top seed Ronnie O'Sullivan was shockingly dumped out of the competition by world No.63 Alexander Ursenbacher, while last year's British Open winner Mark Williams was also eliminated by an outsider, world No.44 Ben Woollaston.

The British Open returned to the tour last year following a 17-year hiatus and the comeback edition was won by Welshman Williams, who defeated Gary Wilson 6-4 in the final showdown.

The eventual champion will earn 100,000 ranking points and is likely to shoot to the top of the charts for this term as players jostle for position with a busy winter approaching.
