Shanghai Masters Qualifying Day 2

Pizza Cake: Jimmy delivered a win yesterday.

It’s Day two of qualifying in Barnsley and this sees the culmination of the first round in the morning session followed by two sessions of the second round in the afternoon and evening.

There was a good win on Day 1 for Jimmy White over Oli Lines and he is back in action today against another one of the young army of players in Jack Lisowski. It’s a funny thing with Jimmy as he clearly still has the game to compete to a certain level, but he does lack the consistency and perhaps the concentration to go really deep in events anymore, but he’s nothing if not a trier and he’ll still be convinced that he’s got a big win or two left in the tank, you’ve gotta love him for that.

Today sees the winners from the morning and afternoon sessions facing players on the next rung up the seeding ladder, so as ever it’s interesting to see whether those with a win under their collective belts will be more at home than those coming in cold, which to me is part of the charm and interest of this old format.

By the way, you know us snooker lot like to have an opinion on things, sometimes just for the sake of having an opinion even if you don’t really have one. If you fit that category why not complete Matt’s snooker survey by clicking here, I did it yesterday and ended up arguing with myself about the answers I was giving, it was a very healthy debate and nobody was hurt in the process, it passes a few minutes anyway and I’m sure given Matt’s reach in the sport the governing body will study the results and then throw them away and decide Bazza was right all along.

Yesterday the afternoon treble ensured a profit on the day so we’ll play with the winnings today to see how it goes.
