I find Selby will rise to the occasion so many Chinese players that its very unpredictable now. I find these play to have a lot of talent but they feel the pressure in the final stages as we seen at the Northern Ireland cup Yan Bingtao vs Mark Williams. Yan has the best talent and great game i have see a new player have in years but he crumble at 8-8 on the deciding frame and William took it. Ok experience bla bla bla but the real better player was bingtoa as his potting and breaking building was superb.

So i will stick with Selby, Robbo, Trump and Mruphy.

Good luck folks!ExcitedExcitedExcitedExcitedExcited

Not seen Dotty play for a while, but Judd still seems to be intent on trying to hit the cover off the ball on every shot and is giving chances.  Think Dotty is the sort of player who could get under Judd's skin.  Judd's a cheap enough lay, for me.

It's the last 16 of the UK, and R.Day is 5th favourite. If that fact alone doesn't get them to look at the absolutely ludicrous schedule - nothing will. Although I'm sure that the 'experts' will tell us that, somehow, it is further evidence that the standard keeps getting better and better.

Now we can say that masters is the 2nd highest ranking tournament, well before the UK, which seems to turn into "just another of so many tournaments". The masters has much more high level match-up, from start. Not a single high seed encounter at the UK so far and already 6 out of top 10 gone... absolute joke.Angry
