Monday16th of February ~ Sunday 22nd of February at the Motorpoint Arena, Cardiff
A largely straightforward first two rounds see the majority of the top seeds through to the much less hectic four table set up. However, some shocks have inevitably happened, with Ding Junhui's poor season continuing with a first round loss to experienced pro Lee Walker and Masters champion and recent German Masters runner up Shaun Murphy juts losing out to one of the home favourites, Jamie Jones.
Still, defending champion Ronnie O'Sullivan, World Champion Mark Selby and others such as Judd Trump and Neil Robertson are still in it, as well as a number of Welsh players looking to add the first Welsh name to the trophy since 1999.
Who will make it to the last 16?
