History[edit]

The event was introduced in the 2007/2008 season and was the second ranking event to be held in China as a result of the growth of the sport in the country.[1] Until 2016, an extra wildcard round was included before the first round proper, featuring eight players.[2] In 2018 the tournament became a 24-man invitation event.[3]
