Just hours after the conclusion of the Indian Open qualifiers, 120 players will do battle for the 60 remaining places in the final stages of the sixth ranking event this season.
One of the latest additions to the ever-growing world snooker calendar last season, the main event will run from October 2-8 in Lommel, Belgium.
Judd Trump is the reigning champion after beating Ronnie O’Sullivan 9-8 in a dramatic final last October and, as a result, his first-round clash with Chris Totten has been heldover to the main venue.
World champion Mark Selby will also have to wait until October for his opening match against Mark Joyce, as will home favourite Luca Brecel, who has been drawn to play Sam Craigie.
Nevertheless, there will be plenty of quality on display at the Preston Guild Hall, including 10 of the world’s top 16.
World number two John Higgins is the highest-ranked player in action over the two days and is joined by Barry Hawkins and Hong Kong Masters champion Neil Robertson, who is aiming to go the extra couple of steps after reaching the semi-finals last year.
Shaun Murphy and Stuart Bingham are among the other elite players on display, as well as Mark Allen, Kyren Wilson and Ali Carter, while Riga Masters champion Ryan Day and Mark Williams complete the top-16 representation.
World number 17 Martin Gould is one of several men aiming to return to the top echelon with a strong run in this event, as well as Anthony McGill and Stephen Maguire.
Masters runner-up Joe Perry also falls into that category, along with the likes of David Gilbert, Mark King and Ricky Walden, while the crowd will be looking forward to seeing favourites Jimmy White and Ken Doherty.
The qualifying round runs from August 3-4 with all matches contested over the best of seven frames at the Preston Guild Hall.
