THE world’s best players converge on Wembley Arena again next week – and you could be there to witness their battle for the prestigious Masters crown.

Mark Selby, who pulled off a memorable comeback to defeat Ronnie O’Sullivan and regain the title 12 months ago, is hoping to collect his third Masters championship in four years.

But the ‘Jester from Leicester’, who opens this year’s tournament – now sponsored by Ladbrokes Mobile – against Mark King on Sunday, faces strong competition.

John Higgins, who recently recaptured the world number one spot, is one of four other former Masters champions in the field, along with O’Sullivan, Mark Williams and Stephen Hendry.

Hendry has won the title a record six times, but several other players will be aiming to secure their first Masters success, including world champion Neil Robertson and Ding Junhui, a beaten finalist in 2007.

The Times has teamed up with organisers World Snooker to offer one lucky reader a pair of tickets to the final, on Sunday January 16, with five runners-up winning a pair of tickets to both semi-finals the previous day.

To stand a chance of winning, all you need to do is email the answer to the following question, along with your name, address and a contact telephone number, to nwl.sport@archant.co.uk no later than 10am on Wednesday January 12.

Who is the current world number one?

a) Mark Selby. b) Neil Robertson. c) John Higgins.

If you aren’t fortunate enough to win one of the prizes, you can still catch the action at Wembley Arena by calling 0844 815 0815 (disabled booking line 020 8782 5629) or visiting www.worldsnooker.com/masters
