Ronnie O’Sullivan – Ken Doherty
GOOD MORNING AND WELCOME TO OUR LIVE UPDATES
World No. 1 Ronnie O’Sullivan begins his quest for a first title triumph at the International Championship against Ken Doherty, while defending champion Judd Trump meets local wildcard Wang Xinzhong, the 12-year-old snooker prodigy, who defeated Gong Chenzhi earlier today 6-5 boosted by breaks of 53 and 65. Not often Trump faces a player 22 years his junior in a competitive match. Should be fascinating. Boys on the baize at 11:30am GMT.
Judd Trump will be looking to join Stephen Hendry as the only player to win four consecutive ranking events when he competes at the International Championship in Tianjin, China.
Trump has won 20 matches in succession after lifting the trophies at the Northern Ireland Open, English Open and Wuhan Open.
Ronnie O’Sullivan, Luca Brecel, Mark Selby and Neil Robertson will be among those looking to end Trump’s winning run.
Keep up with all the latest scores, results and fixtures below.
