Paul Hunter Classic

Recommended Posts

The Paul Hunter classic gets played over this weekend (Saturday/Sunday 23rd/24th August)  This event is no longer a ranking event, after being ranked for 3 years. Instead it's been cut down dramatically (probably players not entering a non-ranking event) and now we have just 16 players into the main draw.

Looking at the draw, the bottom half is an easy call for me and that's Dave Gilbert. So many of that bottom 8 are out-of-form that I really think he makes the final here. The top half I see it between the newly in-form Shuan Murphy or possibly Luca Brecel is ready to turn some form around. Murphy has a good record against Kyren Wilson so if he beats Brecel, I would fancy him to make the final.

With the odds avaliable, it's not worth me going each-way on these two. Both win-only

Murphy has pulled out of this. The bet on him is a void. Instead, as a second option, I'll take Luca Brecel. He has beat Wilson 3 of the 4 h2hs and he would only have to beat Mark King and Ken Doherty to reach the Semi-Final here against Kyren. I'll also go small stakes on Selt. 20/1 is far too big in this weak field.
