The English Open Day Three

Filed under: snookerbacker @ 8:56 am

Just two days in to the action at Manchester and already we’ve had a maximum, Alfie Burden was the latest addition to the maximum hall of fame last night with his 147 against Daniel Wells, it’s Alfie’s first maximum in his years on the professional tour and also marked his 100th century, so despite losing the match, he did have some consolation.

The big names continue to come through with no real shocks at all to speak of in the first round, you have to feel that the winner of this will come from the small band of players right at the top of the sport, one thing is for sure, the winner will be in the spotlight given the £1 million bonus on offer. I’d hazard a guess that a certain Mr O’Sullivan might be nabbing the headlines going in to the second event, I’m sure he’d enjoy nothing more than making Uncle Bazza sweat a bit, but we’ll see.

Recommended Daily Acca: Fergal O’Brien, Joe Swail, Xiao Guodong, Stephen Maguire, Shaun Murphy and Stuart Bingham pays over 14/1 at Corals.

Single Punts at Decent Prices: Daniel Wells (7/2), Tom Ford (13/8), Peter Lines (10/3), Chris Wakelin (19/5).
