Welsh Open snooker is underway with 128 players going head-to-head for the title in Cardiff.

Fans will flock to the Motorpoint Arena all week to witness some of the game’s finest players in action.

Defending champion John Higgins has won the Welsh Open a record five times during his long career.

He will be gunning for an unprecedented sixth triumph in the competition but faces plenty of stiff competition.

Ronnie O’Sullivan is the favourite once again but his 10-4 defeat to Judd Trump in The Masters final last month may have wobbled the superstar.

Trump has enjoyed great success in recent weeks and will be hoping to go all the way in Cardiff.

All the big names are playing today during Round One of the competition but when can you see your heroes in action?

Express Sport has rounded up the full Welsh Open schedule.
