Some great matches again today in Newport but for me it remains a shame that they are still the best of seven frames and I suppose that’s why I’m not really that excited about the tournament.
It’s good to see Mark Williams getting back to winning ways in front of his home crowd and his win over Robbo yesterday was his best result for a long time. But with the likes of Ronnie, Selby, Judd, Higgins, Ding and the holder Maguire all left in it this is going to take some winning.
In terms of the outrights, Ding, Judd and Bingham are still in there fighting so it’s all to play for. Here’s today’s line up with predicted winners and an interest bet on the first three sessions.
Ali Carter v Mark Selby
Stuart Bingham v Joe Perry
Predicted Winners: Selby, Bingham.
Stephen Maguire v Joel Walker
Ricky Walden v Ronnie O’Sullivan
Predicted Winners: Maguire, O’Sullivan.
Scott Donaldson v Ding Junhui
Judd Trump v John Higgins
Predicted Winners: Ding, Trump.
Mark Williams v Marco Fu
Liang Wenbo v Barry Hawkins
Predicted Winners: Williams, Wenbo.
Recommended Bet: 1 point acca on Selby, Bingham, O’Sullivan, Maguire, Ding and Trump pays bang on 13/2 at Corals.
