Professionals return to action

Today sees the professionals back in action after the Christmas break, with the resumption of the BetVictor Championship League.

This is a non-ranking event but it will be a good warm up for The Masters for some. The group finishes tomorrow and Groups 4 and 5 will be played on Wednesday/Thursday and Friday/Saturday respectively. There are still 2 groups after that which will be played later in January before the Winners Group is played in early February.

Today, Group 3 gets underway with an intriguing clash between current World Snooker Champion, Mark Selby, and the current UK Snooker Champion, Zhao Xintong. These two will be featuring in The Masters, which starts this coming Sunday.
