Ronnie O’Sullivan has withdrawn from the Championship League and will be replaced in group 3 this week by Stuart Bingham.
O’Sullivan finished runner-up to Mark Williams in group 2 but presumably has other commitments.
Group 3 thus features John Higgins, Shaun Murphy, Ali Carter, Bingham, Marco Fu, Peter Ebdon and Mark King.
King had been due to come into the event in group 4 but replaces Mark Allen, who was unavailable to play in group 3 but will play in group 4 alongside Stephen Hendry and Matthew Stevens.
You can follow the results on the official site or on Matchroom Sport’s twitter feed here.
I shall also tweet in between commentaries.
