Anthony Hamilton makes his Champion of Champions debut after a superb maiden victory at the German Masters earlier this year.
‘The Sheriff of Pottingham’ fought past tough competition for his first career ranking title in the form of Mark Selby, Barry Hawkins, and Ali Carter to name a few.
“It will feel like the old days when I used to qualify for the Masters. It is an extra tournament with all the best players in the world – the players I look up to and the public like to watch. It will be nice to get on the one table set up, I love all of that business, and I have heard the Ricoh Arena is a great venue for snooker.”
