Anyone got any views on this? Higgins at 1.44 seems a bit skinny

That's a lay for me, I can definitely see Wenbo taking a lead into the second session, whether or not he holds onto that lead is another thing.
Report mr singh December 10, 2009 1:26 AM GMT
i think the way wenbo has been playing this week gives him a really good chance of winning the title, he has been as impressive as any of the top players. getting past higgins won't be easy, higgins hasn't looked good in some of his matches this week but he is still hard to beat even when he is not playing well. i don't think higgins should be as short as he is for the match.

Webbo cruisin in 3rd gear so far. may move up a gear now,still no chance v Higgins 9-4/5.

Ronnie beat Wenbo in a final in Asia this year and apparently it was scrappy in parts.
Wenbo's experience of that will stand him in good stead, but Higgins is top 3 in the world and I think he will win 9-7/6

Report Eldrick December 10, 2009 2:59 PM GMT
higgins is just having a muck about today i think, going for plenty of shots he doesn't have to, once he got 2-0 up i think he sensed wenbo was having a shocker and he had nothing to worry about

not the shrewdest thing to do in my view, but he has definitely played some shots like he doesn't care if he leaves wenbo in

6-2.Could of been very different but about all Liang deserved for his shocking shot choice a couple of times.
Report frames December 10, 2009 3:49 PM GMT
The more I think about that shot where he put the pink safe instead of snookering behind the brown the worse the shot choice is.Are they coached to put a colouer safe at all costs ? He rolls to the brown and Higgins has to hit a red and get safe , long odds against and even if he does he is still 66 behind with 67 on.
And yes I am talking through my pocket.
Report Eldrick December 10, 2009 4:00 PM GMT
devils advocate - he was a big runner to land a much better snooker in behind the yellow (tight on top cushion) after he clipped pink to side cushion, so he was trying to achieve two things in the shot he selected

it was also a bit of a stretch for him to dab the brown left handed, cue ball was only 2mm away from it, and there was a minor but not zero chance of a complete fk up foul, which probably would have put wenbo in massive trouble playing out of
Report frames December 10, 2009 4:07 PM GMT
Perhaps I need to see it again ,looked the easiest shot in the world to roll behind the brown.The shot to get behind the yellow was very tricky bridging over the brown.Anyway losing the 2nd frame was the big mistake in this match.Could be a classic semi Ronnie v Higgins.
Report Tangeboom December 10, 2009 4:09 PM GMT
hopefull liang tags on a few early frames this evening so i can get my correct score up! :D
Report Eldrick December 10, 2009 4:12 PM GMT
the white was about 1mm below baulk line i think, he came round to play your shot, shaped to climb on the table, and then went back to the pink. he couldn't just dab it standing level with the baulk line, had to get his body on the table and stretch

the cameraman got in line with the yellow pocket twice, thinking he was going to go for a**ers cut

now that would have been truly mental, but you don't put anything past him
Report Eldrick December 10, 2009 4:14 PM GMT
being left handed played a big part of him turning the shot on the brown down i think

that was about 9/10 from higgins today to be fair, he didn't make many errors, would have pounded most people on that form

wenbo had a fairly woeful day at the office, and will learn nothing, just go back to the practice table and pot ball after ball after ball because he simply doesn't get half the game
Report Super Hans December 10, 2009 7:02 PM GMT
Seem to remember about 5 years ago. Dennis and Willie banging on about the the Chinese taking over the game in 5 years.

If he`s the 2nd best they`ve got there`s still a long way to go.
