The Home Nations Series concludes this week with the Welsh Open, where Ronnie O’Sullivan and Judd Trump will make their comebacks.
O’Sullivan and Trump both missed the Snooker Shoot Out and the German Masters, but they are among the favourites to win in Llandudno.
Last year, Joe Perry won his second ranking title with a stunning 9-5 victory over Trump in the final.
The tournament is also the final one of the BetVictor Series, which is presently led by Ali Carter. Whoever comes out on top after this Sunday will receive a bonus of £150,000.
When And Where Is The 2023 Welsh Open?
The Welsh Open will be hosted for the first time at Venue Cymru in Llandudno from February 13 to 19. The Welsh Open has always been staged in Cardiff or Newport.
Since 2017, the trophy has been named after Ray Reardon, a six-time world champion.
