International Championship Semi Finals

Filed under: snookerbacker @ 5:39 pm

Long two session semi-finals are the name of the game in Chengdu for the next couple of days and for me at least the betting satchel is now well and truly closed on a tournament that has seen an end to the recent hot betting streak. It was bound to happen sooner or later and we’re still way way ahead on the season so far.  

With the greatest respect to Friday’s two protagonists it’s probably not the most entertaining match up of all time. But both Perry and Fu have had great starts to the season and have both won something so it’s going according to form you might argue.

The semi-final on Saturday however could be a cracker. Dotty is just the type to put the fly in the ointment and Ding’s winning run as he attempts to make history could be stopped by the tenacious Highland Terrier.

The headline writers will doubtless want an all-Chinese final again, but Englishman Perry and Scot Dott will have something to say about that I reckon. I’ve seen worse bets that Dott with a 2.5 frame start at 4/5 with Ladbrokes and I reckon that will go close, but gun to head I’d have to side with a repeat of the Masters final a few years back with Fu lining up against Ding.

We’ll see.
