Germany's top player Einsle is on the main tour for the third time in 2013/14 having come through the EBSA play-offs in Sheffield in April 2013.

He edged out Christopher Keogan 4-3 in the final round, coming from 3-2 down to win the last two frames. "It was a very tough match with a lot of pressure," said Einsle. "It's good to have a German player on the tour and hopefully younger players in my country will see me and start to play snooker. The new format for ranking tournaments next season is great as it could give me the chance to take on top 16 players and get more experience. I would love to play Ronnie O'Sullivan."

He previously played on the tour in 2006/07 and 2010/11 but found the going tough and dropped off.

German under-17 champion in 2002, he has reached the semi-finals of the European Under-19 Championship twice.
