Ronnie O’Sullivan will face Chinese prodigy Yan Bingtao in the first round of the Ladbrokes World Grand Prix, which starts on Monday.

The tournament at the Guild Hall in Preston runs from Monday to Sunday this week, with 32 of the world’s best players battling for a top prize of £100,000.

The draw and format has now been confirmed, following the conclusion of the last qualifying event, the German Masters, which finished on Sunday night with Anthony Hamilton beating Ali Carter in the final. The top 32 on the one-year ranking list go through to Preston.

Crowd favourite O’Sullivan has been handed a tie against 16-year-old Yan, who reached the quarter-finals of a ranking event for the first time last week in Berlin. That match will take place on Tuesday evening at 7pm.

World Champion Mark Selby will be up against Martin Gould on Wednesday at 1pm. The ITV4-televised tournament gets underway tonight at 7pm with Judd Trump against Tom Ford, followed by John Higgins against Michael White.
