The Masters begins this Sunday as snooker’s elite meet at the Marshall Arena in Milton Keynes – and it’s not one to be missed.

The second-longest running tournament behind the World Championship, the Masters is one of the three Triple Crown events, and snooker’s best will be eager to etch their name into the history books next week.

Judd Trump is going into the tournament as the 5/2 favourite and has been having a fantastic season after winning the English Open, the Northern Ireland Open and the World Grand Prix.

He’ll be joined by the likes of reigning UK Championship winner Neil Robertson (4/1) and seven-time Masters winner Ronnie O’Sullivan (4/1). The Rocket will be looking to make his mark having not won a title this season.

Stuart Bingham, meanwhile, will be defending his Masters crown and is currently 25/1 to do so.
