In form lads:
O’Sullivan’s been well up for it this season so far
Murphy’s in great nick and is 25/1 in some places still which is madness
Williams might surprise you. Just won the NI Open. Wife’s currently ill though so might affect him in the UKs
Trump’s got to a couple of finals. Wouldn’t rule him out.
Two biggest ‘new’ stars of the season so far - Yan Bingtao and Luca Brecel. Yan just got edged by a resurgent Williams in NI. Finally becoming the real deal. Luca Brecel’s been unplayable at points this season.
My bet - I got on Luca at 40/1 after the Champion of Champions.
(All that being said, Selby will probably win it)
BIG SNOOKER CHAT at the moment is this new Taom chalk which apparently eradicates kicks. Some players swear by it. Others claim it’s nonsense. But still, BIG SNOOKER CHAT.
