Shanghai Masters Day 3

Filed under: snookerbacker @ 3:04 pm

Big crowds so far over in Shanghai in what I think most of the players class as their favourite venue and event in China. We’ve already seen last year’s champion Kyren Wilson beaten as well as a 147 from Stephen Maguire, so it’s been an eventful start to the tournament.


Wednesday sees the last lot of the last 32 matches being played out with the Shaun Murphy/Stephen Maguire tie probably the pick of the bunch.

In case anyone missed it there was also some big news in the snooker world announced earlier this week when it was confirmed that a new financially lucrative China Championship will be played in November in the city of Guangzhou in the Guangdong Province of South East China.

It will be a 16 player event made up of the top ten on the main ranking list and the top 4 from the one year ranking list alongside 2 players nominated by the Chinese Snooker governing body. Following this and for the next three years it will be a 128 player full ranking event. The first prize is topped only by the World Championship with the winner set to carry off a no doubt oversized cheque for ¬£250,000. So it’s great news for the players at the top of the sport who continue to grow richer and richer.

RECOMMENDED WEDNESDAY BET: Treble on Bingham (-1.5), Maflin (+2.5) and Williams (-2.5) pays over 9/2 at Marathon Bet. Stephen Maguire to beat Shaun Murphy at 11/8.
