World Grand Prix Order of Play

Filed under: snookerbacker @ 9:26 am

From Berlin the World Snooker Bus now travels back to the UK, Preston to be precise to the iconic Guild Hall where the World Grand Prix will see the top 32 players on the one-year ranking list compete for a £100,000 first prize.

It’s best of 7’s until the semi-finals so not really an event I’ll be covering in any great depth but the action starts on Monday night on ITV, so tune in if it’s your kind of thing, the coverage the station offers is always very high quality.

The full draw is here and the order of matches is below. Last night’s winner Anthony Hamilton has been allowed a few days rest back in Pottingham before he plays on Wednesday night against Mark Allen.

Monday February 6

Judd Trump v Tom Ford
John Higgins v Michael White
Dominic Dale v Liang Wenbo
Barry Hawkins v Kyren Wilson

Tuesday February 7
Stuart Bingham v Ryan Day
Shaun Murphy v Michael Holt
Mark King v Stephen Maguire
Mark Williams v Joe Perry

Ronnie O’Sullivan v Yan Bingtao
Marco Fu v Jamie Jones
David Gilbert v Anthony McGill
Ali Carter v Zhou Yuelong

Wednesday February 8
Mark Selby v Martin Gould
Neil Robertson v Ricky Walden
Anthony Hamilton v Mark Allen

    Fair play to Michael White, botched a 60 point lead in frame 6, (Higgins cleared), but Michael pulled himself together in the decider to threaten a maximum with 12 reds and 12 blacks to win just before midnight. Trump got a 145 earlier too, so the tournament off to a flyer. Upside was the commentary on ITV4, great stories and analysis and Jill holding things together as professionally as ever. Downside is the best-of-7 format, because we’ve had some great matches already, but had it been best of 9 or best of 11, you’re left thinking “What if it had continued?”
