Bingham - Max Man

They are going snooker loopy over in Austria, or ‘the home of the maximum’ as it is now known.

The Austrian Open proving a fertile ground for potters with Stuart Bingham emulating Neil Robertson’s maximum break with one of his own. This being his third competitive 147. He lost to Robbo however as the maximum annoyed the Champ a bit who wanted all the limelight to himself.

It must be all that Alpine air, Baz must be considering moving the whole tour to Austria after this, inevitable surely.

UPDATE: The Final will be contested tonight between Neil Robertson and Judd Trump.

The Quarter Final line up features:

Ryan Day 2-4 Joe Perry

Tom Ford 1-4 Judd Trump

Shaun Murphy 3-4 Mark King

Peter Ebdon 2-4 Neil Robertson

(Perry now plays Trump and King plays Robertson in the semi finals)

With the professionals quickly dispensing with all the jokers that entered this tournament with the hopes that one of them might let them win a frame.

Betting on the first Austrian/German/Danish World Champion being during this millenium is a 66/1 shot for anyone that has a few quid to tie up on a long term bet, or maybe fancies handing down a betting slip as a family heirloom.
