Shane Van Boening and Earl Strickland will start their hunts for a sixth title against Francesco Candela of Italy and the USA’s Adam Martin respectively.

World No 1 Albin Ouschan begins against Scott Haas.

Europe’s Mosconi Cup hero Jayson Shaw starts his campaign against Esteban Robles, while wheelchair pool player Henrik Larsson goes up against Max Watanabe.

Veteran Darren Appleton faces Jonathan L Smith, with women’s world 9-ball champion Kelly Fisher taking on Leo Ott.
