Good luck to MJW, but the prices to small stakes that I have on the nugget are just too good, I could beat the credit crunch with this type of cash. Let's wait and see.

The only event in a year I haven't backed Selby for by the way..........................

If he gets back to his best two more world titles,only real pressure player left in the game,all front runners the others,maybe one exception ebdon but he doesnt count.
Report ihatehwb October 5, 2008 10:31 AM BST
what about Selby, Higgins or Murphy. All of which perform well under pressure. Particularly Higgins.
Report thegiggilo October 5, 2008 11:46 PM BST
Dont think higgins is great under pressure when his opponents are buzzing murphy has patches compared tohis world and i forgot about selby must agree there,same vain as williams but probably has to many battles to be championOne of the few players i wouldnt mind seeing win it.

Report Lozzy November 2, 2008 9:17 PM GMT
Ever since Mark's decline there has definitely been a void at the top of the snooker tree of a third really top class talent to go alongside Ronnie and John Higgins. Mark Selby is the closest to filling it, Shaun Murphy can do it in patches, and Ding Junhui has the potential, but what the snooker world needs is Mark Williams back at his very best.

Brett, you have always wanted the edge in any bet we have had. You are way off the mark on this price, that is firstly if he makes it.

I would rather wait to closer to the time to see he gets there, so keep your powder dry, I am sure there will be other times over the coming months.

Good luck

Brett, see most of the books go 2/1, I am glad your not pricing up markets for us poor punters to have our last penny's on. I will be leaving this one alone thanks, only have my eyes on one match and it doesn't involve a welshman and it is not odds on either.
Report brett_1 December 10, 2008 3:52 PM GMT
if i was pricin it up in a 100% market i would have mark about 3.15-3.2 to beat selby..

hows ryan playing?seen him down ninian park against reading few weeks ago..think 4-6 against mathew looks fair enough...

only had quick look through prices and joe perry 4-9 and ally carter 4-7 only ones that look slightly to big to me,as for you,my guess is you fancy hawkins at 6-5(i make that an evens each of 2
Report casm December 10, 2008 5:00 PM GMT
You were pricing it up for me, dont you think that you would give slightly bigger than the books. Think you got that one wrong, but who am I to question the great one.

Ryan has (is) playing Mark 3 times, tues to thurs. Mark edged the one yesterday for what it is worth. Ryan has a tough opener, personally I think he will win, however better judges than me dont think he will.

Wrong on my bet, cant tip my hat just yet, need to get on. Given a massive preview on the otherside tho if you ever get a debit card to join up.

You can have 10/21 Perry with me if you want no commission, I like to beat the books when I price up.

Granted it could be a long wait but I doubt that. We will know three weeks tonight when he plays his World Qualifier but he is fortunate that with the exception of Dave Harold who is 1500 points behind him, no other player close to him has qualified for both the Welsh and China, so the placings will barely change.

So stockey, 21 days to the top 16.

Selby looks like the new great pressure player but has been a little disappointing,the trouble with selby has so many battles they take there toll.
