Some of the greats of snooker bring together on the Crucible Theatre in Sheffield this week for the World Seniors Championship.
Former international champions together with Stephen Hendry and Cliff Thorburn are competing, as is fan favorite and six-time international finalist, Jimmy White.
There is an overly respectable £25,000 at the line for the winner in South Yorkshire, who will likely be topped on Sunday night time.
The large names will likely be joined by means of a variety of beginner qualifiers, and it was once any such unknowns that triumphed final 12 months, with Aaron Canavan lifting the identify.
Canavan is again to check out and shield his crown, however can one of the most extra recognisable faces take it from him?
