The oldest major tournament in world darts takes place at the Circus Tavern for the first time, and you can follow all the latest results and fixtures here.
The 46th staging of the World Masters sees 32 men and 16 ladies battle it out for the respective titles at the legendary Purfleet venue which formerly hosted the PDC World Championship.
This year’s World Masters has featured a change of qualifying criteria, with all players starting out in the qualifying rounds in Grays earlier in the week in order to book a place in the televised finals.
Defending men’s champion Adam Smith-Neale failed to qualify, as did the likes of World Trophy winner Jim Williams, Wesley Harms, Andy Hamilton and Martin Adams.
Former Lakeside Champions Scott Waites and Scott Mitchell are among the line-up, as well as former world finalist Jeff Smith, BDO number two Richard Veenstra, Dave Parletti and Paul Hogan.
Lisa Ashton is the defending ladies champion and faces competition to retain her crown from the likes of Anastasia Dobromyslova and Lorraine Winstanley.
Men’s First Round, Second Round and Last 16 ties are to be contested over the best of five sets, with Quarter-Finals best of seven, Semi-Finals best of nine and the final best of 11. All sets are the best of three legs.
The tournament will be televised live on Eurosport, with the prize fund remaining at £60,000.
