PAUL HUNTER CLASSIC SNOOKER 2017

The third ranking event of the season took place in Furth, Germany (August 25-27) as Mark Selby attempted to defend his Paul Hunter Classic title.

The world number one beat fellow Leicester potter Tom Ford 4-2 in the final 12 months ago, one of five titles he won in an outstanding campaign.

But this year, he didn't have it all his own way and failed to reach the final, which was contested by Michael White and Shaun Murphy.

Here, you can look back at how the tournament unfolded with all the results and links to the final review.
