Masters snooker 2020: How to watch the Masters snooker – TV, live stream, dates, times, prize money


Masters snooker returns in 2020 with Judd Trump aiming to defend his title at Ally Pally.

The top-ranked star will be the centre of attention following the shock withdrawal of Ronnie O’Sullivan from the tournament in December.

Plenty of huge names from the world of snooker are still in the frame and will be gunning for a shot at Trump and the title.
