A total of 82 players will battle for the title in Wales. Each player must win one qualifying match to advance to the last 64. The top 16 seeds compete in qualification matches.

The two wildcard players’ matches will be rescheduled for February 28, the tournament’s first day, and will take place at the venue. Jordan Brown, the defending champion, is among the top 16 seeds, along with Ronnie O’Sullivan, Judd Trump, and Neil Robertson.

The 34-year-old had already defeated Mark Selby in the quarter-finals and thrashed Stephen Maguire 6-1 to set up a showdown with the Rocket in the final.

Brown became only the fourth Northern Irishman to win a ranking title by defeating the man many consider to be the greatest player of all time, following in the footsteps of his countrymen Alex Higgins, Dennis Taylor, and Mark Allen.
