Monday16th of February ~ Sunday 22nd of February at the Motorpoint Arena, Cardiff
After four days, 128 players have been reduced to 8. It's been a tournament of shocks, with none of the top 8 making it to the quarter finals, leaving an eclectic mix of players in the tournament.
First we have the 'lesser' top 16 players, three time winner John Higgins, International Champion Ricky Walden, 2013 Welsh Open winner Stephen Maguire and 2013 Australian Open winner Marco Fu, all looking to add another trophy to their cabinet.
We have younger, up and coming players, Ben Woollaston, Gary Wilson and 19 year old Luca Brecel.
And then we have the last remaining Welsh hope, two time World Champion Mark Williams, in his first quarter final here since 2011 and aiming to be the first Welshman in the semi finals since Dominic Dale in 2004.
Who will make it to the semi finals?
