This is the first time in the competition's 16-year history that it will be staged in the USA and the players will be competing for a $62,000 prize fund, with the winner receiving $20,000.

US Open winner Shane Van Boening faces experienced former Mosconi Cup player Imran Majid of England , while Corey Deuel is up against Euro Tour veteran Christian Reimering of Germany.

England 's current World Pool Champion Daryl Peach has a tricky looking opener against 2001 World Champion Mika Immonen ( Finland ), while countryman Mark Gray, the European No.1, faces a daunting prospect against the classy Alex Pagulayan.

Mosconi Cup team-mates Tony Drago (Malta) and Niels Feijen (Holland) will play each other in Round One, while there will be an intriguing encounter as five-times Masters champion Ralf Souquet (Germany), meets 18-year-old World Junior Champion Ko Pin-yi of Taiwan.

The final opening round match will see Filipino legend Francisco Bustamante meet Bruno Muratore of Italy .

"I believe this is the highest quality field that we have had in the Masters and looking at the first round matches, it is impossible to pick eight winners. said a spokesman for event promoters Matchroom Sport.

"All the players will have to be at the very top of their games to progress and we are all looking forward to some exciting matches over three days of intense competition."

On the Friday evening the World Pool Trickshot Masters will be taking place at the same venue with six leading players entertaining the crowd with a variety of tricks and stunts.
