Yesterday saw the start of the first of the four Home Nations snooker tournaments.

Having started last year, the first English Open went to China’s Liang Wenbo, who pulled off a shock victory against Judd Trump. In the first round of this year’s tournament in Barnsley, Trump was taken to a deciding set before managing to defeat Robbie Williams (no not that one), while Wenbo had a more comfortable victory against Wales’s Duane Jones.

Can Wenbo manage to retain the Davis Trophy?

The English Open is on EuroSport 1 at 12.45.
