The tournament runs from February 23 to 26 at the Watford Colosseum and it’s a one frame knock out event featuring 128 of the world’s top players.
All four days will be televised live by ITV4 and the players will wear mics on their waistcoat lapels. This is an innovation which has worked well in other sports such as golf and cricket as it helps give extra insight to the TV audience.
This season the Shoot Out will be a world ranking event for the first time which means that every pound earned will count towards the players’ ranking tally.
The action is thrilling and fast-paced as each match features a shot clock of 15 seconds for the first five minutes and ten seconds for the next five, with matches lasting a maximum of ten minutes.
