The internet-streamed invitational enters its final stretch as each of the seven qualifying group winners from over the past two months return to battle it out for the £10,000 title.

The lucrative Winner's Group offers £200 per frame won, as well as £300 per frame in the play-offs and further high break incentives along the way.

Arguably the strongest field ever assembled, the Winner's Group is headed by Group One champion Ronnie O'Sullivan - who is looking to add this title to his Masters and Welsh Open triumphs in 2016 so far.

Back on home soil in Essex, O'Sullivan will come up against a number of his main rivals as he looks to fine-tune his preparations for next week's World Grand Prix by capturing this trophy for the first time.

O'Sullivan will open up against attacking rival Judd Trump - with the youngster eyeing a third Championship League success to follow up his wins in 2009 and 2014.

Trump, who will begin the defence of his Grand Prix title in Llandudno next week, prevailed through Group Two despite finishing in fourth position.

Two-time runner-up Mark Selby bids to make it back-to-back tournament wins following his Gdynia Open glory at the weekend, and the world number one will open up against none other than his recent nemesis - O'Sullivan.

Ali Carter, runner-up here in 2013, battled through Group Six and is one of three Essex-based players appearing in the Winner's Group.

Scottish star Stephen Maguire is well-suited to the quick-fire format of this competition and is riding high after hanging on to his place in the World Grand Prix.

Two-time World Champion Mark Williams has already racked up £15,700 from this year's Championship League and will look to cash in once more by ensuring a top four finish come Thursday evening.

Matthew Selt was the last player to book his place in the Winner's Group via Group Seven, and he starts out as very much the underdog in the line-up.

The action gets underway at 11am GMT, with all matches to be contested over the best of five frames at Crondon Park Golf Club in Essex.
