Straightforward 10-2 wins for Mark Selby over Fergal O’Brien and Stephen Maguire over Anthony McGill today. Here is what they all had to say afterwards.
April 15, 2017
The time has finally arrived, after a fun-filled day yesterday in Sheffield minus just the one living world champion as billed, it’s time to now get down to the serious business.
As tradition holds, the reigning champion opens things up on Table 1 and later this evening (or possibly in the early hours of tomorrow if it goes close) we’ll see whether he’s managed to negotiate the banana skin in the shape of Fergal O’Brien as well as seeing who comes out on top in the all Scottish affair on Table 2.
This afternoon heralds the entrance of Ronnie O’Sullivan as well as David Grace, who having seen him yesterday, will soak up the atmosphere, I swear he still thinks this is all a dream. Anyway, here is the schedule for today.
