After the opening day defeat of the defending champion, we move to the possible defeat of the tournament favourite. This morning's session is going to define the rest of the tournament - it really is a huge, huge session.

If R.O'Sullivan comes through, then he'll need to show all those battling qualities that most of his layers believe he doesn't possess. And, if he does win - the tournament will completely revolve around him and his quest for a 6th World Title. He is likely to shorten to around 6/4 should he prevail.

However, if S.Maguire knocks him out, then the tournament will be totally wide-open, and players who we've all thought are no more than members of the supporting cast come into the reckoning. Most of the reasons for dismissing these players revolves around their likely defeat to O'Sullivan and/or M.Selby. If both of these players are out then it really is up for grabs, and half the field will genuinely believe they have a realistic chance. A fascinating session awaits...

Walloped 7-1 and Ron was only average apart from a couple of clearances.

He blags no bow tie because of a 'neck condition'. Maybe no backbone.
