  1. Can see the love for Thomas here. Looks a good pick. I'm going with Hovland and Woodland as my main two. Hovland is just primed this week. He hasn't lower than T16 for the past 8 tournaments. First start here but has shown that doesn't phase him. Can go well. Woodland, runner up last year and US Open winner looks a decent enough price for me to get involved. Of the outsiders at a big price I'm going to take List, Janewattananond and Vegas. All 3 figure prices. List I took last week and he performed well but faded away. Janewattananond looks a real prospect, leading the asian tour and finally Vegas who is my wildcard stab in the dark this week. 2pts E/W V.Hovland 20/1 betfair (7 places) 1.5pts E/W G.Woodland 22/1 betfair (7 places) 1pt E/W L.List 70/1 betfair (7 places) 0.75pts E/W J.Janewattananond 80/1 betfair (7 places) 0.5pts E/W J.Vegas 150/1 betfair (7 places)
  2. 3/6 then lastnight. Round 1 over with and only to Round 2. Ricky walden has beaten Craigie in the two h2hs between the two, however it's been years since they have played and Sam Craigie has come on leaps and bounds since then.Craigie had a real hard match in round 1 against the talented Honghao and despite being down in that match, he came back to win. Walden faced an easy passage really against Borg. I feel like Craigie is the value here. Xu Si faces Dom Dale at 1pm. Xu Si has been in form for a while now and I get the feeling that Dales win over Ding is abit masked not by the form of Dale, but Ding. Dale only managed one break over 50 in that match. I'll go with Si on this one. Finally, Tom Ford is the so inconsistent for me that he's worth taking on against Lu Ning. Ford won well against Peter Lines, but you wonder if Ning could cause him problems. They have one h2h in which Ford won on a deciding frame and Ning at 6/5 is my pick there. Ronnie is up against Sijun and I am going to be laying Ronnie here. Sijun is a decent up and coming player but to be honest, I would lay Ronnie with just about anybody at the moment. He cares so little for this tournament that 4/1 on Sijun is huge value. He had the faster average shot time of anybody this season in that last match because he was just smashing it around. Perhaps, against Sijun he will get down and think but 4/1 is worth the opposing. Kurt Maflin is still looking the player i've backed in the previous couple of tournaments and it suprises me that he is the underdog against Jimmy Robertson. Jimmy hasn't performed for me in a while and his stint with the Champions League shows me even more so. 5pts S.Craigie to beat R.Walden evens bet365 5pts X.Si to beat D.Dale 6/5 bet365 5pts L.Ning to beat T.Ford 6/5 bet365 3pts Sijun to beat R.O'Sullivan 4/1 bet365 5pts K.Maflin to beat J.Robertson evens bet365
  3. level for the day, but an air of randomness about the tournament already with the small framed format. Looking at today, I like the following. Bond goes up against Ferg O'Brien at 10am. Bond, I backed last time out against Daniel Wells last week and he looked decent in that match, scoring a century and winning 5-2. Infact, Bond has only lost to Neil Robertson and an on-fire Saengkham this season and has already beat O'Brien 6-2 in June, so I'm not sure why he is such a dog here. Elliot Slessor faces Carty and I'm going to risk the handicap on Slessor. He beat Carty on their only h2h and Carty has only won once this season. Next up, Anda has beaten Haotian 4-0 in their last two h2hs and Haotian has lost to the likes of Mann and Duane Jones. They are the type of players he was beating last season. I'm going to take a punt on Wembo beating Kyren Wilson. Wilson won the last h2h but Wenbo has won all the previous matches and funny enough all those other matches were from a shorter format. Michael Georgiou has already beaten Grace 5-2 this season and indeed won all 3 head-2-heads, so I'll be taking Georgiou to win that tie. Finally, I'll take Mark Davis to beat Dott. Davis had a great tournament last year and Dott just isn't performing right now at the shorter format. 4pts N.Bond to beat F.O'Brien 6/4 betfair 4pts E.Slessor (-1.5 frames) to beat A.Carty evens betfair 3pts Z.Anda to beat Haotian evens bet365 2.5pts Wenbo to beat K.Wilson 9/5 bet365 5.5pts M.Georgiou to beat D.Grace 10/11 bet365 5pts M.Davis to beat G.Dott 6/5 bet365
  4. English in the placings T4. One of the best r4s but left it all too late.
  5. Day 1 : Plenty of matches tomorrow. In the first sessions the ones I like are Ben Woollaston to beat Higginson, first up. Woollaston won the previous h2h between the two, at the China Open this year, in April. In that 6-3 win, Woollaston scored one hundred and 5 50+ breaks. He has been scoring well recently and Higginson is out of form. His only wins this season have been against out-of-form players. One outsider I like tomorrow night is Harvey Chandler to beat Mike Dunn. Dunn has looked pretty poor recently, losing 5-0 to Trump and 5-3 to Steadman without so much as a 50 break. Add to that going down 6-0 to Jak Jones and a top break of just 61 this season and you can see you would oppose him against most. Harvey Chandler is a good, improving player. He has beaten Maflin and Carrington already this season and is scoring much heavier than Dunn. 6pts B.Woollaston to beat A.Higginson 4/6 boylesports 4pts H.Chandler to beat M.Dunn 11/8 williamhill
  6. Both winners lastnight. The final in my eyes is all about if Chisnall freezes in the moment of that all elusive win. For me, MVG wins this and probably to the scoreline of around 5-3 possible 5-2. I don't think there is enough value for me to bet and I'm gonna give it a swerve. No bet
  7. Semi-finals tonight and although I would much rather Durrant win. I am backing Chisnall. He has the far better scoring at the moment and I think that will be enough for him to win with ease to be honest. I expect a 4-2 kind of score but Chisnall is somehow the underdog at evens and I'll take that. In the other match, I expect Dobey to freeze if I'm honest. I think MVG takes it about 4-1/4-2. 5pts D.Chisnall to beat G.Durrant evens paddypower 2pts D.Chisnall to win the match / most 180s / highest checkout 3/1 betfred
  8. This gets started on Monday. Bingham looking to keep hold of the trophy. Ronnie O'Sullivan in town and a few players realy on form makes me think this tournament could be a good one. Top half of the table is likely to yield a Bingham Vs Murphy quarter-final. The winner of that is likely to make the final in my eyes. In the other half it's all about Ronnie O'Sullivan, but that also means there is plenty of big outsider value picks. I'm going to take Bingham first up. I said it before. I was looking at Bingham a month ago to be honest. I backed him for the Champions League and he's already qualified for that in March and I'll be backing him here to defend his crown. Not easy ofcourse, but maybe Mark Davis can do him a favour like last year in beating Ronnie. It's very close between Murphy and Bingham, but Murphy after his win hasn't played a whole lot and I just feel Bingham will be alittle sharper. I'll also be taking a couple of big outsiders in Quarter bets too. I don't think these guys can win, but McGill and Ali Carter are far too big to hit some form here. I'm giving Maguire one last chance here. He had a good tournament last year in reaching the Semi-finals and the draw is quite kind to him. Again, there are a couple of big outsiders to win Quarter 2 that I like too. The bottom half houses Ronnie O'Sullivan. I actually really fancy Selby this week but I can't be having 12/1 that he beats Judd, Ronnie, Murphy, Bingham etc. The value is just poor. Instsead, some big priced quarter winners once again. First up, Vafaei is in the form of his life right now and I'll take him to win Quarter 3 2pts E/W S.Bingham to win English Open 16/1 betfred 1pt E/W S.Maguire to win English Open 80/1 ladbrokes 1pt A.Carter to win 1st Quarter 20/1 ladbrokes 1pt A.McGill to win 1st Quarter 33/1 ladbrokes 1pt N.Saengkham to win 2nd Quarter 35/1 bet365 0.5pts L.Honghao to win 2nd Quarter 50/1 ladbrokes 0.5pts J.Cahill to win 2nd Quarter 66/1 bet365 1pt Vafaei to win 3rd Quarter 18/1 betvictor 1pt Guodong to win 3rd Quarter 28/1 ladbrokes 1pt G.Wilson to win 4th Quarter 14/1 ladbrokes
  9. King had darts to win 3 of the 4 sets. Brilliant match.
  10. Full house last night, including the 10/1 accy. Durrant into the Semi-finals aswell. Not playing very well though and I would make Chisnall quite a warm favourite in that match tonight.
  11. Bingham wins Group B to get into the finals (in March) N.Robertson won Group A. Great result for outright bet on Bingham. Champions League finals line-up N.Robertson (GrpA) S.Bingham (GrpB)
  12. Chizzy done the business. Aspinall really should have won easier than 3-2 but hey ho! tonight a few I like. Chisnall faces Aspinall and I think the trouble on the doubles for Aspinall really hands it to Chisnall here. I'm going to take a small punt on the -1.5 handicap also. I also like the look of Merv King to atleast get a set against MVG. Merv has beaten King in the past and wont be scared of him by any means. 5.5pts D.Chisnall to beat N.Aspinall 10/11 ladbrokes 6pts M.King (+2.5) to beat MVG 4/6 bet365 1pt Accy - Dobey(+1.5) / Chisnall(-1.5) / King(+2.5) / Durrant - 10/1 betfred
  13. 5pt treble please Slovenia(2) 2.50 Slovakia Vs Wales(X) 3.10 Kazakhstan(1) 1.95
  14. Seens as they haven't teed off yet, I'll add my little picks to this. I've gone for Danny Willett (25/1), Van Rooyen (33/1) and Andrea Pavan (33/1)
  15. Quite a poor event in my eyes, this one. Looking through the market I suppose atleast there is abit of value down the order. I'm just taking 3 for this. This used to be quite a good tournament for the players preparing for Augusta. Now, many players have withdrawn barring the likes of Stenson, who has a good record here. I'm sticking with Harris English this week. A good end to last season and then a 5th/6th/33rd this season shows the guy is hitting some good form. The greens around here will suit him for putting. Next up, Scottie Scheffler. Another guy starting well this year and a player primed to go well here. Finally, Daniel Berger. After an injury lay-off Berger couldn't ask for a better track to get back on. Two T5s here in the past and again, loves the putting greens. 2pts E/W H.English to win Houston Open 40/1 coral (paying 7 places) 1.5pts E/W S.Scheffler to win Houston Open 25/1 boylesports (paying 8 placeS) 1.5pts E/W D.Berger to win Houston Open 22/1 paddypower (paying 8 places)
