The £250,000 tournament, to be held at the Butlins Minehead Resort from Friday November 29 to Sunday December 1, feature the top 32 players from the year's final ProTour Order of Merit.

Michael van Gerwen topped the rankings, winning an incredible £125,350 during the year as he took victory in five of the eight UK Open Qualifiers, two European Tour events and two Players Championships.

Van Gerwen's reward is a clash with Welsh youngster Jamie Lewis, after he ensured his debut by hanging on to the final qualifying spot.

Dave Chisnall, who won his third title of the year in Barnsley on Saturday, edged out Peter Wright to finish second with £68,400 to the Scot's £64,900.

Chisnall will take on quick-fire Dutchman Jelle Klaasen in a mouth-watering opener, while Wright faces World Youth Champion Michael Smith.

Brendan Dolan's victory in Sunday's Players Championship 16 saw him move onto £59,800 for the year, just £200 ahead of another in-form star - Kim Huybrechts.

Northern Irish ace Dolan will take on Wolverhampton's Wayne Jones in the opening round of the lucrative finals, while Huybrechts, last year's beaten finalist, is handed a clash with multiple major finalist Terry Jenkins.

Reigning Players Championship Finals winner - Phil Taylor - who finished 19th on this year's ProTour Order of Merit, faces 2010 champion and rival Paul Nicholson in the first round.

2011 champion Kevin Painter, the only other player to lift the title, takes on two-time World Champion Adrian Lewis, while last week's Grand Slam finalist Robert Thornton opens against Richie Burnett.

Jamie Caven, the number seven seed, plays Colin Lloyd, European Tour winners Steve Beaton and Wes Newton take on James Wade and Andy Smith respectively.

Last year's losing semi-finalists in Minehead, Australian Simon Whitlock and Taunton's Justin Pipe, face each other in the first round this year, while Mervyn King faces five-time World Champion Raymond van Barneveld.

John Part, who won March's UK Masters European Tour event at the Butlins Minehead Resort, opens against Andy Hamilton, while that event's runner-up Stuart Kellett will play Somerset-based Gary Anderson, and Ian White meets Ronnie Baxter.

The schedule of play will be announced in due course.
