Saturday 15th of April~Monday 1st of May at The Crucible Theatre, Sheffield
It's been a week since the tournament began. Kyren Wilson is already through to the quarter finals and three more men will join him today.
Ronnie O'Sullivan will be hoping to finish off Shaun Murphy after winning an important 16th frame. Mark Allen will be hoping to maintain the form that gave him a 5-3 lead against Higgins for two sessions, while Higgins will be hoping he's survived the onslaught. In a high quality, all Chinese clash, Ding continues his campaign to become Asia's first World Champion.
Day 8 also sees the return of defending champion Mark Selby and Stephen Maguire, who haven't played since Day 1. They both start as favourites, but as Rory McLeod can tell you, it doesn't mean they'll win.
