UK Championship Day 2 Updates

Filed under: snookerbacker @ 7:45 am

Sunday Roast served with seasonal vegetables and a bit of good old fashioned rivalry.

A great day yesterday to start things off with the highlight being a session of real high quality between John Higgins and Stephen Lee who play to a conclusion first off today locked at 4-4.

I still fancy Higgins to come through as he looks mightily determined and if history is anything to go by, when he needs to win a match he usually does. But if he is slightly off colour at all the resurgent Lee will not let him off the hook lightly.

This should whet the appetite for the main event that follows when Jimmy and Stephen lock horns. A day in front of the TV beckons, as the Rocket is on tonight too, a veritable feast to go with your meat/nut roast and two veg.

Mark Allen, Mark Selby, Ding Junhui and Stephen Maguire all came through yesterday and it sounds like Allen played quite well, Selby again proved his class against tricky Ricky and established himself as a real contender this week.

Poor old Rory McLeod couldn’t keep up the momentum after winning the first frame against Robbo and a decombustalation of sorts followed, though to be fair Robbo was very solid and is now looking every inch a World Champ. This is going to be a cracking tournament with all these players in form.

You have until 12.30 to enter today’s Festive Sack competition here and as ever feel free to chat away in the comments section.

By the way, I noticed a few of our friends over in Germany were having problems watching the snooker coverage. There is always the fallback of going to fromsport.com for anyone who can’t see the action.

Decombustulated.
