We are back at the Crucible … and Jimmy White will be looking to defend his title. Will he be the first to break the “Curse”? We will find out in the coming days.
Here is the draw, and the schedule for round one:
If you are in the UK, you will be able to watch on BBC. All you need to know is here.
The event will be covered in China as well on the usual streaming channels.
Everywhere else in the world, you will be able to watch the action on the Matchroom.live platform. You’ll need to subscribe but it’s free.
The players have access to the brand new Ding Junhui Snooker Academy in Sheffield for practice. Thank you Ding!
There was a pre-revent party yesterday, outdoors and duly “social distanced”.
Here are the best pictures by Andy Chubb
Andy will be the only photographer in the “bubble”. I have asked, and kindly be granted, permission to use the pictures shared by WSS on social media on this blog. Thank you!
