Belgian PTC Day 1

Filed under: snookerbacker @ 7:50 am

The investigation is focusing on a series of nicknames

After two days of qualifiers it’s now time for the professionals to take to the baize in Antwerp, a city that yesterday saw a fatal shooting right outside the hotel where the players are playing, World Snooker have confirmed that Stephen Lee is not a suspect for a change. 

Apollobet have a range of prices on the matches which can be found by clicking here, including handicap and correct score betting. Eurosport have coverage throughout the day and the first match up will be Mark Selby against the mighty Jurian Huesdens, that should be a close one…

Later in the day, John Higgins hits our screens and arguably the best match covered from the early ones follows as Steve Davis takes on my great pal Michael Holt, the Hitman another who has been released by police pending further enquiries as they thought his nickname was the key to the shooting investigation, their attention is now focusing on the Shotgun Jamie Cope, Mark ‘The Pistol’ Allen and Allan ‘The Albino Assassin’ Taylor, it’s little wonder they are confused with all these boys in town, and that’s even before they have the bottle to arrest Dark Mavis.

Because of all the qualifiers still in the mix it’s difficult to find a bet this morning, but as the day goes on this will change I am sure. SB Classic Finalist Andrew Norman is in great form and can be backed at odds against to beat Anthony McGill but that one is too close to call for me. One amateur that could spring a surprise is Gary Wilson who takes on Gerard Greene so I may have an interest on him.

Recommended Bet: 1 point on Gary Wilson at 13/8 with Apollobet. 2 point treble on Holt, Perry and Norman (+2.5 frames) pays just under 7/4 with Apollobet
