Tuesday 24th of November~Sunday 6th of December at the Barbican Center in York.
With the first round of this United Kingdom Championship now negotiated, we are down to the Last 64 stage, and this is where TV coverage begins, brought to us by the BBC and Eurosport.
Few shock results have been registred, but one notable big scalp was 2 time UK Champion, Ding Junhui, who once again loses early in a ranking event and his poor run of form goes on. This time, he fell at the hands of amateur Adam Duffy, who recorded a surprising easy win, 6-2.
So we have current World Champion, Stuart Bingham, last tournament (CoC) runner-up Mark Allen, Judd Trump, twice winner of this event, Mark Williams, current Shanghai Masters Champion, Kyren Wilson, current Masters Champion, Shaun Murphy, recent winner of CoC, Neil Robertson, Mark Selby and of course the player in form, already twice ranking event winner this season, John Higgins, all of them trying to go one step closer to a UK Champs title.
Still in the draw is also Sydney Wilson, who recorded a surprising win over welshman Michael White, and also Barry Hawkins, who can say has dodged a bullet by recovering from 3-1 down in his match against Andy Hicks and by winning a final frame decider on the last black.
Who shall win their respective matches and move to the Last 32 stage?
