The tournament, named after three-time Masters champion Paul Hunter who passed away in 2006, began life as a pro-am in 2004 before being elevated to European Tour status in 2010 and is hosted annually in Germany where snooker's popularity has grown enormously in recent years.

This season's event runs from August 26 to 30 at the Stadhalle in Fürth and boasts a total prize fund of 125,000 - with 25,000 going to the winner.

Irishman Mark Allen is the reigning champion after he beat English ace Judd Trump 4-2 in the decider last year, and he returns to defend his crown.

Among the other top stars taking part are world champion Stuart Bingham, who will face John Higgins in the pick of the last-128 matches, Trump, Mark Selby and Shaun Murphy.

Bingham has admitted that he is still coming to terms with his World Championship win and though he felt "a bit jaded" afterwards expects to be fully refreshed for Germany after a family holiday in Turkey.

"I do feel a little bit jaded. It took me two weeks to recover from the World Championship and I still feel a bit knackered," he told BBC Sport this week. 
"Back in the day you had about three months off after the World Championship and you could enjoy it and chill out. 
"It's been non-stop but I am getting back to normality. I need a break and after that I will have two weeks before a tournament in Germany, and then I am off to Thailand and China."

The 39-year-old will be hoping to emulate last season's consistency having won his second ranking title before the World Championship at the Shanghai Masters, beating Mark Allen in the final as well as two other trophies.

He also reached the last four of the UK Championship and three other semi-finals before walking away with the £300,000 winner's cheque at the Crucible.
