Welsh Open: Tuesday in Newport

Ronald is in action tonight in Wales.

With one thing and another I’ve not been able to concentrate fully on the Welsh Open for the last couple of days but from what I can see it appears that the form book is being kept to by and large with very few what you might term ‘surprise’ results materialising over the first few days.

All the outright picks, Ding, Trump, Bingham and Dott are still involved and having landed the only recommended match bet the other day it looks like it could be a decent betting event, despite my initial reservations that it is in fact nothing more than a Welsh PTC until they scrap this best of seven, all at the venue nonsense. I still have a feeling that Judd might be the man to be on this week as it feels like the kind of tournament he could win.

I’ll continue to just watch this from afar but will plump for a few predicted winners again below and a small interest bet.

Regular followers of the blog will probably realise that this week my priorities lie elsewhere as I prepare for Saturday in Gloucester and culmination of a few months work at the SB Classic Grand Finals. I hope a few of you can make the trip there and come and watch, it won’t cost you a penny to get in and it should be a cracking day. Here’s the draw for anyone that missed it yesterday.

Here’s today’s line up.

10:30am

Jamie Cope v Ding Junhui
Graeme Dott v Jamie Jones
Fergal O’Brien v Liang Wenbo
Anthony Hamilton v Li Hang

Predicted Winners: Ding, Dott, O’Brien, Hamilton.

NB 7:00pm

Stuart Bingham v Thepchaiya Un-Nooh
Mark King v Alan McManus
Ricky Walden v Matt Selt
Barry Pinches v Ronnie O’Sullivan

Recommended Tuesday Bet: 2 points pays nearly 5/2 at William Hills on Ding, Dott, Carter, Murphy and Bingham. 1 point treble pays almost bang on 10/1 at Apollobet on O’Brien, McGill and Lisowski.

    MJW vs Tian is like watching a couple of drunks trying to play snooker. Latest lowlight is Tian potting a red, screwing the white back….and the cue ball hit him on the hand! Hopeless.

    Not the bravest prediction in the world, but Ding’s looked best so far (the 3 frames he’s lost have all been to big breaks), then Ronnie (13 reds and 13 blacks to start tonight) then Judd. May be a favourites’ week on the whole.
