We are down to the final two in Clan-Did-No and after an epic deciding frame win over Ding last night Marco Fu joins Judd Trump in the final, the two being probably the form players on the tour as things stand.
They have played each other quite a lot over the years and Judd holds the head to head advantage, but it was Marco who won their latest battle on the big stage in a decider at The Masters, so it’s a tough one to call.
Judd perhaps will come into this fresher given he had a day off yesterday and despite his recent habit of looking for all the world like he’s going to win an event only to lose unexpectedly towards the end, something tells me that this won’t happen today, so I’m going to stick with my original tip for the title to prevail. In terms of a scoreline, I’ll plump for 10-7 which is best priced 8/1.
It’s been a great week of snooker and what follows is a couple of weeks of rest before we head to Beijing for The China Open and the straight into the World Championship.
