Snooker’s biggest invitation tournament, to run from January 13 to 20, will once again take place at the Alexandra Palace in London

It’s an elite field with only the world’s top 16 players earning the chance to compete for the £200,000 top prize and famous Paul Hunter Trophy.

Northern Ireland’s Allen won the title for the first time last season, beating Kyren Wilson 10-7 in the final.

The “Pistol”, who is currently competing in the final of the UK Championship where the draw was made in York, starts the defence of his title against Brecel on the opening day.

Crowd favourite Ronnie O’Sullivan, who has won the Masters a record number of times, will start his bid for an eighth crown against Stuart Bingham on Monday January 14 at 1pm.

World Champion Mark Williams faces Neil Robertson, while Judd Trump will take on Kyren Wilson in a repeat of last season’s semi-final, which Wilson won 6-5.
