The British Open qualifies in Wigan this week and the main event in Milton Keynes next month.

The first round of matches for the top 16 will take place at the Marshall Arena, while the rest of the matches will take place August 9-14 at the Robin Park Arena and Sports Center.

Despite the fact that the top 16 did not qualify, there is no shortage of big names such as Ding Junhui. Attended by Stephen Hendry, Dave Gilbert, Marco Fu, Stephen Maguire and Thepchaiya Un-Nooh.

The British Open also uses a random draw, so Mark Selby faces Ricky Walden, Joe Perry faces Hossein Buffay, Graeme Dott faces Luca Bresel in Round 1, etc. , high-ranked players may compete against each other.
