Day v Ebdon
Yuelong v Highfield
Selt v Guodong
Woolaston v Gould
Dott v Dale
Holt v Milkins
McLeod v Haotian
Stevens v King
Wenbo v Jones
Lisowski v Mcmanus
Yupeng vWalden
Georgiou v Perry
Bingtao v Maflin
Gilbert v Wilson
Robertson v M White
Vafaie v Maguire

Of course that is if all those players get trough two rounds (which all won't),looks handy for Maguire,Wenbo and Bingtao but going to be some big names not at the Crucible for sure.

There's currently an example on the Exchange of why the PP/BF hook up isn't all that it might be. 

Someone wants £2.5k on McManus to beat Lisowski at 3.5.  PP go 3.75 in their own right, and BFSB go 3.5.  Why have they not filled their boots and accommodated the Exchange punter?

Far to intense a player,i mentioned it on the worlds thread he puts everything into one match and plays great stuff you cannot play with that intensity match after match will always catch you up and that's the way he's always played that's why he never wins anything..Selby was similar that's why it too took hiom so long to get to be the best,if you look back ten years ago was getting some great results but his game was far to intense,there hjas to be some medium in your game..

Is Burden only not having another go at the swerve he because he doesn't want the ref to have to replace the balls again?  It's much easier now with where the green has been put than it was to begin with.

Wells v Highfield seems one most likely to run to a late finish .
Report gobelins April 18, 2018 7:03 PM BST
It's all relative though stunning. With 5 o'clock starts, any finish after 10 o'clock is a late one, and that's just around the time your real grinders like Ebbo and Fergal start to slow it right down. Both L.Highfield and D.Wells can be slow, and can be quite negative. I've had high hopes for Highfield for a few years now, so I'm hoping he can make it. Meanwhile S.Maguire, is looking a little ragged, and is pegged back to 7-7.

I agree. He'd "gone" in that frame, and there has been signs of the pressure building on him. But, that fluke may have saved him.

It's such a shame, as he really could have been one of the really top players of his generation, but that suspect temperament will always be his undoing. He was very fortunate tonight, on another day he doesn't fluke the red and he possibly loses 10-7. Anyway, he's in the hat tomorrow morning, and I suppose that's all that matters.

Overall it was a disappointing judgement day,not one final frame decider and very little drama.It will remain a mystery what happened Wenbo,ok we know he is inconsistent but I can't ever remember a whitewash in a final qualifier.
I'm sure all the seeds wouldn't mind getting Wakelin,while avoid Maguire on the other scale,but we should see some cracking first round games.
Let's hope the drama is saved for the Crucible Cool
Report gobelins April 18, 2018 9:43 PM BST
S.Murphy might not want C.Wakelin, given that he beat him 6-0 in China a couple of weeks ago! I'd probably agree that S.Maguire would be the one player the big boys don't want in R1, although I'd imagine J.Trump wouldn't want to play J.Lisowski first up.
Report stu April 19, 2018 10:44 AM BST
Have to say Maguire's attitude stank at times in that last game - all over the place. If he turns up so unbalanced in the main event I'd have thought he was easy pickings.

Seeing he's got Ronnie first round, I'd be expecting there were some Scottish phrased 'blue words' muttered loudly...! Laugh
