The tie that immediately stands out is the one between the 2011 Masters champion Ding Junhui and the four-times Masters champion and local favourite; Ronnie O'Sullivan. Ronnie seems to be getting back in to his stride this season, winning two PTC events and performing strongly in the Premier League and will probably be favourite going in to the match as he always seems to play well at the Masters especially in front of his home crowd in London. Their match will be the first on the Sunday afternoon so expect tickets to sell quickly for that one.

 

Stuart Bingham Snooker PTC2 2011

 

Looking at the draw it is easy to see that the top half is the most dangerous with O'Sullivan, two-times recent PTC champion Neil Robertson, Judd Trump and Mark Allen all looking rather strong in recent months. I personally am looking most forward to the clash between Trump and Australian Open champion Stuart Bingham who will be making his first appearance as a top 16 player, having won the qualifying tournament two times in 2005 and 2006. Bingham recently defeated Trump in the first round of the Shanghai Masters and has played well in televised events recently so it will be a fascinating clash to watch.

 

Martin Gould Snooker Pink Ribbon 2011

 

London-based Martin Gould is the debutant at the Masters this year. Narrowly making it in to the 16th spot in the rankings at the cut-off point for the tournament, he will be looking to impress at his home venue and it will also be great for him to play there as he was a regular spectator at the event when it was held at Wembley in recent years. He should give Brazil Masters champion Shaun Murphy a good match. Stephen Lee and Matthew Stevens also see themselves back in to the top 16 for the first time in a few years and they face tough openers against Mark Selby and John Higgins respectively.

I will be at the Alexandra Palace for the whole event providing tournament news, photos, behind the scenes gossip and much more so if you see me, don't forget to say hello!
