Monday 1st ~Friday 5th of June at the K2 Leisure Centre in Crawley
The Australia Goldfields Open is in its 5th year and in its first year back in 2011 this is where it all started for our current World Champion Stuart Bingham when he came back from 8-5 down to beat Mark Williams 9-8 in the final.
This year for the first time The World Champion will be playing in the event in Bendigo.
But before then we got 112 players in Crawley trying to join the top 16 seeds at the venue.
Round 1 sees a mixture of experience campaigners like Nigel Bond and Jimmy White take on debutant on the main tour the likes of Gareth Allen, Duane Jones and Eden Sharav as well as players that just failed to get a 2 year tour card Zhao Xintong and Adam Duffy.
Then in round 2 Jack Lisowski, Anthony Hamilton, Andrew Higginson, Sam Baird, Robbie Williams, Zhang Anda, Craig Steadman, Ken Doherty, Oliver Lines, Peter Lines, Kyren Wilson, Aditya Mehta among others take to the table to go through to round 3 to play against each other to get through to the next round.
Awaiting them in round 4 will be the likes of Rod Lawler, Gary Wison, Martin Gould, Luca Brecel, Ali Carter and former World Champion Peter Ebdon.
Who will book their ticket to Bendigo to play defending champion Judd Trump and World Champion Stuart Bingham?
