This is a huge prize pre-world champs.
I’m sure the Eurosport coverage will be all about Selby & Ding for the first few days, those 2 seem rarely to win any significant matches outside of China any more.

Almost like a different sport to the one we’ve been watching in the UK since Christmas.

I thought Jack was too big, too, but he breaks down on 32 in the opening frame and is royally punished by a very focussed, clinical looking Robbo.
Report Latalomne April 7, 2019 6:30 AM BST
2-0 and Robbo's not missed a pot yet.
Report Latalomne April 7, 2019 7:02 AM BST
Robbo's dropped a couple of cogs here and has played three of the most bizarre shots I've ever seen in this frame.
Report Latalomne April 7, 2019 7:08 AM BST
3-0

You can't miss them, Jack.....
Report Latalomne April 7, 2019 7:23 AM BST
4-0, and I don't think Jack has got it in his locker to come back from here against a player of Robbo's class.

If he can somehow get out the first session 6-3 he's still got a squeek.
Big if though.

Going back over the last three seasons, he's come back from 3-0 down against Wilson and 3-1 down against Ian Burns & Chen Zhe.

Report wondersobright April 7, 2019 7:57 AM BST
that opening red he potted to make 32 he was looking good early
then missed that unmissable red & was like the proverbial gambler on tilt after that
Report Latalomne April 7, 2019 7:57 AM BST
Fair one.

What did you make of Robbo's shot selections in frame #3?  Turning down the yellow over the bag, gifting the red into the bottom left bag by running the cueball into the black and then playing the snooker (at the third time) off the jaws?
Report Latalomne April 7, 2019 7:58 AM BST
I laid a lump at 2.54 when he was in in that first frame Cool
Report wondersobright April 7, 2019 7:59 AM BST
the yellow was odd but when they are close to the pocket not always easy to control the cue ball...he did push the brown safe as well & kept 2 point cold

I wouldn't nail him for refusing the green, but surely it wasn't that hard to hit slightly right of centre of the yellow and get the cueball behind blue and brown?

Can't say as I have, Mate. 

Not going to lie, part of me is expecting a Second Coming from God.  He played alright in one tournament this year and has been too bad to be true (almost literally) for the rest of the season.  I know his old man likes a punt....  Laugh
