A fabulous performance last night by J.Lisowski, and he finally looks ready to make the step up from a promising young talent to a top 16 player who will be a contender in future tournaments. There was a real composure about him, and that red he potted into the green pocket from tight on the black cushion was sensational. There won’t be too many who fancy meeting him while he’s on this crest of this wave. His next opponent will probably be J.Higgins, but if T.Un Nooh comes through – don’t blink as the frames will go flying by, as he makes Lisowski look pedestrian! J.Trump, who has unbelievably gone under the radar, as he wanted, makes his latest assault on the title and should have too much for C.Wakelin providing he applies himself throughout and doesn’t under-estimate him.
You wonder if the milkman will rue those 2 missed opportunities to open up a 7-2 overnight lead against N.Robertson later today. Robertson seemed unhappy with his tip at the end of the session, so if he's had to change it he could be in even deeper trouble. I’m on A.McGill +2.5f against R.Day (the handicap is now generally +1.5f). Day is a rightful favourite, given the success he has enjoyed this season, but there are some players you take to, and McGill is one of those for me. He’s not very consistent, and his current form is very patchy having lost to a Chinese amateur in his most recent outing - but he looks a Cruicible player, and a close contest looks likely…hopefully.

Whenever J.Parrott commentates he's all over any ball that hits the jaws and stays out, saying  these championship tables won't accept them if your a fraction out. But, whenever a red like that one from J.Higgins drops, despite it being half-a-ball wide, he just says "oh it wiped its feet but it's in".

It should never have dropped on a table being used for The World Championship.
Report gobelins April 25, 2018 9:25 PM BST
wonder - tread carefully! Beating S.Bingham is one thing, but beating J.Higgins over 25 frames (a distance J.Lisowski has never played over) is quite another. It promises to be a cracker, but Higgins looked in very decent nick there.
