The unique tournament produces thrilling fast and furious snooker action. Televised by ITV4, it’s a one-frame knockout format and all matches last a maximum of ten minutes, with a shot clock of 15 seconds for the first five minutes and ten seconds for the last five. Drama on the green baize is guaranteed, with many matches going down to the last few seconds.
And this year it’s a world ranking event for the first time. There will be 128 players all aiming for the £32,000 top prize, and the random draw has now been made.
World number five Murphy faces China’s Zhang Anda in his opening match while 2015 World Champion Bingham will be up against Hamza Akbar. Crowd favourite White will take on amateur Louis Heathcote while defending champion Robin Hull will play Mei Xi Wen.
Other top-16 ranked potters among the line up include Mark Allen, Joe Perry, Barry Hawkins, Liang Wenbo, Mark Williams and Kyren Wilson.
The first two rounds will be played over Thursday February 23, Friday February 24 and Saturday February 25, with the 32 survivors going through to the final day to play to the conclusion.
