Tuesday 9th ~ Thursday 11th of February at the Metrodome in Barnsley
The China Open is well established on the tour having started back in 2005 and won by China's own Ding Junhui in the first of his 11 World Ranking titles to date.
Last year Mark Selby captured the title with the defence of his World title just round the corner but things didn't go to plan for Mark is Sheffield.
This year the tournament is still in Beijing but before that 120 players will be battling it out in Barnsley to join defending Champion Mark Selby, World Champion Stuart Bingham, China's top two players Ding Junhui and Liang Wenbo plus Darryl Hill, Lee Walker, Peter Lines and Cao Yupeng in Beijing.
Ronnie O'Sullivan is sitting this one out as he has so many this season but theres plenty of quality still on show.
Who will make the trip to Beijing?
