THE UK Championship – one of snooker’s big three tournaments – gets under way in York today and reigning champ Ronnie O’Sullivan has decided not to defend his title.
There’s still plenty of top talent vying for the crown and John Higgins – a man in form with two ranking titles this season – is a decent dark horse at 16-1 with Skybet.
The two-week event cues off with first-round action tonight including Higgins v Leo Fernandez plus a battle of the veterans as Ken Doherty takes on Tony Drago.
Elsewhere today there’s cricket and NBA among the sporting highlights so let’s hear your tips and chat and good luck with your bets.
