Former World Championship finalist Ali Carter says he will make a return to snooker in October after having chemotherapy treatment for lung cancer.
Carter has entered the Players Tour Championship event in Sofia, Bulgaria.
"I've entered my first tournament, the PTC in Bulgaria," Carter, 35, wrote on Twitter on Wednesday.
He has been ranked as high as number two in the world.
The announcement he is to return in October comes after Carter said on Tuesday he had finished chemotherapy.
"I'm feeling much better and it won't be long until I'm back playing again," Carter said.
The Bulgarian Open takes place between 2-5 October.
