World Open Snooker Qualifiers 2017 live stream: The essential guide of how to watch live online
A busy fortnight on the snooker calendar continues with the qualifying stages for the World Open, and you can watch the action exclusively live online.
Less than 36 hours after the conclusion of the European Masters qualifiers, 112 players will do battle for the 56 remaining places in the final stages of the sixth ranking event this season.
One of the mainstays on the the ever-growing world snooker calendar, the main event will run from September 18-24 in Yushan, China.
Ali Carter is the reigning champion after beating Joe Perry 10-8 in a brilliant final 12 months ago, but there will a new name on the trophy after the Captain decided not to defend his title this year.
Meanwhile, World champion Mark Selby will have to wait until September for his opening match against Kritsanut Lertsattayathorn, as will home favourites Ding Junhui and Liang Wenbo, who have been drawn to play Hammad Miah and Akani Songsermsawad respectively.
World number two John Higgins is the joint-most successful player in the history of the tournament – matching Stephen Hendry on four titles – while Neil Robertson and Mark Williams have each lifted the trophy on three occasions.
Mark Allen won two on the spin in 2012 and 2013 and is joined on his quest for a third crown by 2014 winner Shaun Murphy along with Marco Fu, who was victorious in 2007.
Elsewhere, Judd Trump is another of the world’s top players on display in Preston, as well as Barry Hawkins, Stuart Bingham, Kyren Wilson and Ryan Day.
Last year’s finalist Perry will be aiming to go one step better as he looks to return to the top 16 – the same aim as that of the likes of Martin Gould, Anthony McGill, Stephen Maguire and Ricky Walden.
The qualifying round runs from August 6-9, with selected matches from each session streamed exclusively live on desktop or mobile devices in the UK and various other regions.
