8/13 Hawkins v  13/8 Fu

All 4 favourites look a little on the short side for me. I might look to take a few outsiders on the handicap.

McManus has beaten Higgins quite a few times. they're good friends, so could be a tricky match for Higgins..
Report gentlemanjohn April 25, 2016 11:46 PM BST
I'm going to wait to see if McManus initiates a big bear hug like Holt did before lumping on Higgins 13-0/13-1/13-2
Report ZenMaster April 26, 2016 12:22 AM BST
There is an interesting interview with McManus on the Eurosport website regarding the lack of new talent coming through in the UK.

Talking about his youth

"There were 30 boys there at half past nine in the morning. You had 30 boys lined up to play snooker with their cues and paying for it. Now you couldn’t give it away for free. It is a real shame."


“I was keen to learn stuff and work on learning the game. Now it would be a big joke, and they would be smashing the balls around. It would be a waste of time.”
Report ZenMaster April 26, 2016 12:47 AM BST
Selby must crank up his concentration for the quarters surely?
Drifting in and out of concentration suggests that he is falling out with the game.
Self doubt can do that, something he has carried since he was a boy.

Wilson on the other hand must be full of confidence  and sounds like a lad going places with his self assured approach.
Wilson 2/1 is a penalty kick
Report moondan April 26, 2016 8:00 AM BST
This line up is what Hearn deserves but having said that it does have a very dated feel to it and perhaps a yankee on all the outsiders might show a profit.

Not much else to say really other than age concern is on stand by.CryCryCry
Report ZenMaster April 26, 2016 8:20 AM BST
Just how it used to be moondan, before Davis/Jimmy/Hendry/Ronnie/Higgins/MJW broke rank and made a young mans game.

It has reverted to sort, back to the good old Reardon/Spencer/Mountjoy days!
What is not to like?

It's a game for the mastercraftsmen now!Grin

Quite better now, settling down. His C-game enough so far to cruise past an awful Mark.
Report johnnythebull April 26, 2016 11:36 AM BST
u just know that MJW is gonna make slip ups but he needs to press on,build a lead,then should be cruise control

he'll meet a much sterner test against honest john
can't afford to be nervous and fall behind
if he can put him under pressure..should be able to win but higgins could win comfortably on the other side of the coin

u have to admire selby..basically won this match in the 1st session w/o being anywhere near his best
always thought the fawning over this wilson was overplayed
