World Open snooker live stream 2024: How to watch China's top tournament online

Snooker legend Ronnie O'Sullivan gets down on a shot ahead of the World China Open 2024.

Almost five years after Judd Trump clinched the title in Jiangxi province, the World Open makes is back. No.10 seed Ding Junhui is expected to lead the Chinese charge at Yushan Sport Centre – but can he get the better of Ronnie O'Sullivan? Here's where to watch World Open snooker live streams online for FREE – from anywhere. 

Trump is the top seed in the draw, with Luca Brecel seeded No.2, O'Sullivan No.3, and Mark Allen No.4. However, there's one major caveat. The tournament will incorporate the back end of qualifying, which started in Barnsley in January but was deliberately left incomplete.

What's more, the contingent yet to secure a place in the 2024 World Open proper includes Ding, Trump and Brecel, three of its biggest stars. 

Neil Robertson is another player to keep an eye on. The Aussie is in the midst of one of the most difficult periods of his career, having the entirety of last year without winning a single title. He's safely in the draw, but is a return to form imminent?
