Judd v Hossein is interesting.  The H2H in meaningful matches is 2-2, but Hossein has won the last two (last three if you include the BO3 WST Pro Tour, which I haven't).  Unsurprisingly, Judd has clear daylight on the numbers, but then he did have in those defeats, too.  Discounting the Shootout, Hossein's record in SFs is 0-3, the first two of which were horror showings, winning only one frame.  The most recent was a 6-5 defeat at the hands of MJW.  The H2H gives a bit of hope, and given the current drift, 4/1 looks possible and would be worth a dabble.

Jack and Joe have met 6 times (discounting CL and WST), and the H2H is 3-3.  Jack is very marginally outscoring Joe.  Jack 4/5, Perry 5/4 looks about bang on.

Wouldn't say I necessarily knew, mate, but Licky won't have had many days in his career, let alone recently, where he's beaten two players of the calibre of Big Boy and Ronnie on the same day.  There was always the chance...  Mind, you could say similar about Perry, the difference is he's coming into the best form he's had for at least a couple of years right now (a marked improvement the last couple of weeks), whereas Licky's been playing well all season and might be slightly more jaded.

Must admit I watched on BFLV (no comms) and didn't really pick-up on Joe not being well - notwithstanding he missed quite a few balls he shouldn't have missed!  I just assumed Jack was dragging him down.

Joe and Judd have played 12 times, Judd leading the H2H 9-3.  They've met 6 times in the last 5 years, over which period the H2H is 4-2 to Judd. 

Judd is obviously outscoring Joe this season and by quite a bit. 

This week, Judd has made 17 50+ breaks from 40 frames played, converting 5 into tons.  Joe has made 11 50+ breaks from 37 frames played, also converting 5 into tons.

Judd, a lot of the time (and in keeping with much of the season, TBH), has been quite unimpressive, by his standards.  Joe has (prior to last night), been playing as well as he has for a very long time.

Joe has won 1 ranking event final from 5 played (over the sprint trip of BO7).  You don't need me to tell you Judd has fared a lot better than that.

Joe at 4/1, especially given concerns about his health, is a lot less appealing a prospect than Hossein was at a similar price yesterday.  Sit on your hands and see what happens for a while, IMHO.
Report The Management March 6, 2022 1:24 PM GMT
Agree with all that Lats. If Joe gets of to a flier, I could see Judd as a lay-to-back at 1.22 but there's not much chance he is beating (even this slightly sub-standard) Judd over BO17 imo. Joe seems a really decent guy but he just doesn't have the self confidence or the minerals for the final stages imo. I hope he gives him a game, gets off to aa good start and that it's not too one sided.
Report gjohn101 March 6, 2022 1:27 PM GMT
Not saying i really picked up on it either tbh, though Darren Morgan did refer a couple of times to way Joe was holding his head when sat down. JV and the dazzler on bbc wales, different gravy Cool

Assuming a good sleep joe should be ok tonight and judd still not the player he was 12-18 months ago imho, but still couldn't get up much enthusiasm for those odds. Happy to sit back and watch.

Maybe gigg but he did win 3 tournaments pretty quickly after that uk final so i don't know how big a factor that was. He was so dominant last season, or up to final 4-6 weeks anyway, i think it's mentally hard to keep that going. He's a great talent, but he's not nor ever will be ronnie, think there are some doubts lurking there.
Report Latalomne March 7, 2022 7:19 AM GMT
He did at least one interview last season where he basically said he'd achieved all he wanted to in the game.  It seemed a big thing to say at the time, but at that stage he was still performing, so it was easier to overlook than it's becoming now.  I do wonder if he's practicing as hard.  I do also wonder if he might have been saving himself for a really strong push at the Crucible this season.  Time will tell, I guess.
Report gjohn101 March 7, 2022 8:27 AM GMT
Said that too before lats, may be no harm to see a quieter season this time and more in the tank for sheffield. But I'm still not convinced that's how it plays out, it's not by design anyway. Judds alright by me, but seems a complex sort of fellow. Like he's carrying some sort of invisible burden that drags him down from time to time. That's how it seems to me anyway.
Report brentford March 7, 2022 11:46 AM GMT
He seems a surprisingly fragile character, often speaks with great honesty in his interviews but as a result is inevitably revealing some level of weakness to all and sundry in a very stark contrast to the likes of a Hendry or a Davis...even Higgins (Alex)  for that matter..
it's not a criticism as it's refreshing and endearing in many ways especially in contrast to some early perceptions about him as a young player whilst Robertson (Neil) who initially had much of the 'caught in the headlights' projection has become a more and more irritating but confident individual for whom it's never really his fault but as a result maintains arguably more of a presence when played against...

anyway enough psychoanalysis from me...
