International Championship Quarter Final

Filed under: snookerbacker @ 5:43 pm

Thursday sees the Quarter Finals of the International Championship before we move to the Best of 17 frame semi-finals on Friday and Saturday, another reason to love this championship.

While the draw still plays host to a host of big names and most people will be drawn to the saliva-inducing prospect of Robbo and Selby going at it hammer and tongs (ooerr missus), my interest lies elsewhere as a bit of a mini-story will develop if the top match goes against the seedings.

Thepchaiya Un-Nooh was recommended at 18/1 to win the top quarter and at 100/1 each way for the championship, to widespread ridicule from a few renowned shrewdies of varying degrees of tipping ability who should know better on Twitter. I’ll expect grovelling apologies aplenty should good old Theppy do the business tomorrow. If he does, he’ll also have a winnable semi-final, but at this stage it’s still an if, but should he win tomorrow you might want to unfollow a self-obsessed, gloating and incredibly annoying blogger for at least the next month on there.

For what it’s worth from the four matches I’d plump for Theppy, out of pure stubbornness, Marco Fu in a tight one, Selby to oust Robbo who I maintain is not yet near his best while Selby to me is starting to look pretty good again, also John Higgins, who made short work of Shaun Murphy and appears to have fully rediscovered his snooker mojo from somewhere, after some, including that annoying blogger had all but confined him to the snooker scrapheap about a year or so ago.

In terms of an interest bet, perhaps the handicaps/match lengths are again the best to look.

Recommended Bet: 2 point treble pays over 5/1 at Hills on Fu v Gilbert (over 8.5 frames), Robertson v Selby (over 9.5 frames) and John Higgins (-1.5 frames)
