Francisco Sanchez Ruiz is the runaway leader atop the World Nineball Tour rankings, but the Spaniard is yet to make his mark at the World Pool Masters, where he's seeded No.1. Only the top eight players in the WNT rankings are seeded, which sets the bar sky-high right from the off.

Read on and we'll show you how to watch the World Pool Masters from anywhere with a VPN, and potentially for FREE.

With four former champions in Shane Van Boening, Ko Pin Yi, Joshua Filler and David Alcaide vying for the title at Halle39 in Hildesheim, Germany, the competition promises to be fierce. Ko, the reigning champion, is one of the lowest-ranked players in the draw, and his tournament-opening encounter with David Alcaide has the potential to be the tie of the round.

Two-time champion Van Boening has also been handed a rough assignment, against Duong Quoc Hoang, who's had joy against the American in the past, while Aloysius Yapp has the talent and form to bounce No.6 seed Jayson Shaw.

The opening round will be first to nine, the quarter-finals will be first to 10, the semis will be first to 11, and the final will be first to 13. Day one went the way of the seeds with Filler, Ouschan and Shaw all booking straightforward enough passage into the Second Round. How will the rest of the early action pan out today?

Here's how to watch a 2024 World Pool Masters live stream online from anywhere. We've also listed the World Pool Masters schedule at the bottom of this page.

Sky Sports has the rights to World Pool Masters live streams in the U.K., so if you already have a Sky subscription that doesn't include Sports, you'll need to pay £18/month to add those channels.

Whichever package you go for, you'll also gain access to coverage in 4K and HDR, so long as you also have an HDR-ready Sky Q box and HLG-compatible TV.

Sky Glass is another option. This gives you Sky TV within a 4K TV that has a built-in Dolby Atmos soundbar, and without the need for a dish. Prices start at £14/month for the TV, plus a Sky sub on top of that.

If you don't want to shell out for a full Sky subscription, you could also consider its Now Sports streaming service. This gives you 24-hour access for £11.99 or month-long access for £34.99.
