Following a busy couple of days for the amateur players today sees the professionals enter the fray in Furth.
Ronnie O’Sullivan plays his first match at 12 noon and I’m sure you’ll be able to catch that on Eurosport if you get the chance.
Another legend of the game Steve ‘Interesting’ ‘The Nugget’ ‘The Ginger Magician’ Davis is also in action first up, it’s a bit unfair putting him on that early on his birthday. He’ll hardly have time to blow out the candles on his cake before he’s got to get back to the baize.
There are also a few of the SB Classic regulars in action, Jamie Clarke, Jack Bradford, Alex Taubman and Gaz Allen will all be hoping to give a good account of themselves and progress.
Here’s the running order for today.
