The 2023 Masters snooker draw

The 2023 Masters snooker draw has taken place during the final of the UK Championship on Sunday in York.

Defending champion Neil Robertson will begin his defence of the prestigious invitational against Shaun Murphy.

It’s a repeat of the 2012 and 2015 Masters finals, in which the pair won one title decider apiece at the Alexandra Palace in London.

World champion and world number one Ronnie O’Sullivan entertains Luca Brecel as he bids for a record-extending eighth Masters crown.

The in-form Mark Allen, who has already won the Northern Ireland Open and the UK Championship this season, takes on Barry Hawkins.

World number two Judd Trump plays Ryan Day while three-time Masters champion Mark Selby will be in action against Zhao Xintong.

John Higgins and Stuart Bingham will encounter Jack Lisowski and Kyren Wilson respectively.

The remaining fixture will see Yan Bingtao, who only held onto the last qualification spot thanks to Ding Junhui’s defeat in the UK Championship final, challenge fellow former champion Mark Williams.

The Masters will take place from January 8 to January 15 at the Alexandra Palace in London.
