Friday Updates from Sheffield

Paddy and Ant were escorted from the premises

Good Morning everyone. Well last night all turned out fine again didn’t it? Never in doubt as both Couch and Lines coasted into the next round…..

It’s fair to say that we are having a pretty good start to the championship and I do think it’s worth getting involved in these earlier rounds from a punting point of view, there are often pickings to be had and hopefully today’s recommended cavalry charge can round off a nice week and pay for the weekend spends.

As well as the winning bets yesterday special mention has to go to Anthony McGill and Paddy ‘The Tortoise’ Wallace’s marathon match. The third frame lasted 73 minutes, I think they were playing the final brown for about 72 of those, I pity the poor referee who has to come back this afternoon with the pair of them locked in battle at 3-3.

That aside, isn’t it great having these long matches back? Proper snooker, I love it and can’t wait until the main event starts next Saturday. Three festive sack giveaways before then remember so be sure to tune in on the 1st December for your chance to scoop prize numero uno.

Results (not fantastic yesterday but at least Guodong won, was bound to lose a couple of final framers eventually. I got plastered last night so will be playing catch up today, bear with me..)

Andy Hicks 8-9 Dave Gilbert
