The UK Championship is bubbling nicely as the end of the tournament draws into view with a host of top contenders still in the fight for supremacy.


Reining champion Mark Allen was defeated in the very first match of the tournament, flinging the doors wide open for a range of contenders to step up and challenge.

One-year ranking leader Judd Trump remains a lethal presence while world No.1 Ronnie O'Sullivan, world champion Luca Brecel and Mark Selby, who has looked extremely dangerous so far, are all still in the hunt.

Trump won three ranking events in a row in a stellar October to push to the top of the one-year list. Allen triumphed over Trump in the Champion of Champions final to throw his name up in lights, but failed to carry that form to York.

The final rounds are sure to produce more than a few dramatic encounters, and you can tune in to watch all the action live.
