Bruges in Belgium is the location of the second European Players Tour Championship tournament, which has begun today.
91 members of the 96 player main tour have entered as the race for the grand finals intensifies.
The top 24 in the PTC rankings after the 12th event go forward to the televised finale next March.
The Bruges tournament marks the halfway point of the PTC and is due to feature players including Neil Robertson, Stephen Hendry, Shaun Murphy, Mark Selby, Steve Davis and Jimmy White.
Organisers have announced that Ronnie O'Sullivan and Ali Carter have withdrawn.
Crucially, the seedings for the UK Championship, Wembley Masters and Welsh Open will be determined by the ranking list issued after Bruges.
