Wednesday, April 24, O’Sullivan, the second seed, takes face Jackson Page in the event. Luca Brecel of Belgium, the 2023 World Champion, was defeated 10–9 by David Gilbert in the opening round of this tournament.

Round one (last 32) is best of 19 frames; Round two (last 16) is best of 25 frames; Quarterfinals are best of 25 frames; Semi-Finals are best of 33 frames; and Final is the best of 35 frames.

This is the tournament format. Dominic Dale vs. Kyren Wilson, Ding Junhui vs. Jack Lisowski, Jamie Jones vs. John Higgins, Barry Hawkins vs. Ryan Day, and Ronnie O’Sullivan vs. Jackson Page are among the forthcoming first-round matchups.

Since 1977, the World Championship has been held annually in Sheffield’s Crucible Theatre, under contract until 2027. O’Sullivan recently stated that he thought the tournament should be shifted, proposing China and Saudi Arabia as potential locations.

A player will get £40,000 if they break the maximum of 147 in the World Championship; 14 breaks have been made over the years, with two occurring in the 2023 competition. The following is the event’s prize money: First place: £20,000; second place: £30,000; quarter place: £50,000; winner: £500,000; runner-up: £200,000; semi-final exit: £100,000; and first round exit: £20,000.
