Which set, if any, will they flip flop in running?

Happy to have a small lay of Smith 1.34. Smith is box office to watch but will he continue to hit the doubles. Confused

Anderson also looks a fair price @ 2.82

The Final - Michael Smith v Peter Wright - Best of 13 Sets


Michael Smith is a player who has not won a single TV Major and is a known choker.
Peter Wright it could be said was somewhat of a choker too until he disposed of van Gerwen.

Then it changed. Wright became the beast we see today. Proper hardened will to win multi major champion.
Will Smith win and elevate himself to beast like status?

So........I have a free roll on Wright for just over a grand, having taken my stake back out after backing him at 9.6, 9.8 & 10. I only took the stake back because I was concerned he may withdraw with covid. As I said on the other thread, those prices were madness. I have no intention of cashing out, I firmly believe that at the crucial times he will deliver. There were small signs last night that Smith was starting to wilt. Will it happen in the final? I just can't see past a Wright win but I stand to be corrected!!

Pauliow, having noted my concerns on the other thread I was grateful to get my stake back on Wright due to covid withdrawals. It took 3K off of my potential returns but I'm more than happy/fortunate with my position. I staked a further £100+ on other players. One being M. Smith @ 28 for £11. To think I picked Price for back to back titles, yet backed Wright. Having studied the draw I always believed he'd see off van Gerwen if they met though we'll never know.

My Outright position:
Wright +610
Smith +291

£476 is available to cash in.

tbf Smith was outplayed in the 8th set but Wright missed countless doubles and seemed to be gone himself.

From 5-4, 2-0 though Smith was terrible.

Smith looks depressed even when he has just hit a 180 or won a set, really not the sort of body language you expect from an elite competitor. Maybe there is something to be said for Gerwyn's antics.
