MATCHROOM Sport are delighted to announce the line-up for the 2007 PartyPoker.net World Pool Masters.

For only the second time in the 15-year history of the competition there will be a female player among the 16 competitors as the field will include Austrian Jasmin Ouschan.

The 21-year-old is ranked as the World No.1 in the women's rankings and earlier this week clinched the Women's Straight Pool title at the European Championships in Liberec, Czech Republic.

She will be competing alongside some of the biggest names in the men's game, including reigning World 9-ball Champion Ronnie Alcano (Philippines) and defending Masters champion Ralf Souquet (Germany), who has won the Masters title on a record five occasions.

The event, which is one of the most prestigious competitions in the pool calendar, will again be held in Egmond aan Zee, Holland from Friday, June 8 to Sunday, June 10 and the winner will collect $20,000 of the total $62,000 prize pool.
