PTC5 Day 2

Filed under: snookerbacker @ 7:23 am

Day two gets under way at 9am UK time and given that Rory and Rod also commence their slogfest first thing you have to wonder whether they will be finished before the clash of the titans kicks off at 3 o’clock between The Assassin and The Ferginator.

The qualifiers from last night ended up being Jack Lisowski, Dave Gilbert, Jamie Burnett, Anthony Hamilton, Joe Perry, Dave Harold, Ian McCulloch and Andrew Higginson.

There were a couple of talking points, Ronnie secured his place in the Masters by a mixture of beating MJW fairly comfortably and other results going his way, in particular Mark Davis getting a hammering which has given Martin Gould a real shot of the top 16 and a place at Ally Pally in January. One win from Gould in this and he’ll leapfrog Mavis into 16th place, given his opponent at 1pm you have to say that this is a golden chance for the bespectacled one that he must grasp. Anyway, once Ronnie was told he was OK he came up with a pretty lame performance against Peter Lines and got off home as quick as a flash.

The other talking point was the petulant behaviour of the Cuebanger General Stephen Maguire, who at 3-2 down to Peter Ebdon with ten reds on the table conceded the match. Poor Mags didn’t like the table, ahh diddums, and ran off to get his dummy and have a little tantrum off camera. Absolutely shameful behaviour from a player who still incredibly holds a top 8 ranking though a good run in this from Judd Trump will at last knock him out of that elite group at the next revision. To behave in such a way in a match that people are betting on is totally out of order and I’m told he was fined for his behaviour so at least Haven House will make a bit from his immature antics.

I’m out and about today so won’t have a great deal of time to catch up with things for the first part of the day at least, but bettingwise, despite Ronnie fizelling out, yesterday went quite well. It would have been a lot better had Marcus Campbell managed to beat Ian McCulloch who as far as I am concerned is now squarely in the ‘DO NOT TOUCH’ box alongside Mark King and Barry Pinches. The Preston Potter was on the verge of jacking the game in not long ago yet yesterday turned back the clock with three solid wins to qualify for Finals Day. Anyway, decent bets on Hamilton and O’Sullivan earlier in the day to win their openers as well as a last ditch big bet on Graeme Dott to beat Joe Jogia ensured a healthy start, even though Graeme made me sweat a bit.

Today I’ll start off with a 2 point treble over at Paddy Power which pays around 10/3 on Judd Trump, Ryan Day and Matthew Selt. I’ll also recommend 2 points on Andrew Pagett to beat Jimmy at 6/5 generally.

The Best of Luck if you are getting involved and the best of luck to Allan as he attempts to face the Ferginator.
