Is anyone interested in this tournament?

I'm thinking about "Maguire vs O'Sullivan - half century breaks +7,5" @1,85
and "Hann to beat Ebdon" @3,3 but more about the first! :)

O'Sullivan leads Maguire 5-4 (best-of-19) and I think they played already 6 breaks of 50+ points so it looks good. :)

well i missed the rocket's match but am playing the following:

parlaying: davis ML x stevens ML = $2.30

should be easy money :)

Ronnie/Maguire was a funny match. I won my half century break bet + 2 live bets @1.8. :D

Now I played:

WHITE x DOHERTY x HIGGINS @2.35

And I still have to think about the australian devil Quinten Hann. imo he improved his game in China and 3.3 is a good thing.

Yes, Murphy is a good one:yeah:

I have 4 new bets. A shame that I couldn't put them in parlays.

Hendry to play more than 4,5 half century breaks @1,7
Higgins to play more than 4,5 half century breaks @1,7
"Tornado" Drago to play more than 2,5 half century breaks @1,85
Hann to play more than 2,5 half century breaks @1,85

I will take the Quinten Hann bet @3.30. :) Edbon played horrible in China, lost 0-5.

If he loses, I will do something like "O'Sullivan half century breaks" to get my money back!

know nothing about it but if you guys think it can happen i'll throw a few coins at it, my book has hann at 3.75.

At $3.75 you gotta love that nutter, Hann.:cuckoo:
Problem is Ebdon is the kind of guy that drives Hann potty, and could bring out rash shots and early submissions in frames :banghead:

Saying that anything above $3 is worth a pounding for wild card Hann :cool:

my murphy bet is still pending...

but going for a minor upset and taking Fu to beat Ali Carter - $2.30. I think this presents some decent value

Is here anyone else who would go for Matthew Stevens to beat Jimmy White in the 2nd round? I just feel that it will happen ;)
EDIT odds are too bad for me:( 1.40 - 2.95

JMG
04-20-2005, 11:55 AM
Hann vs Ebdon 0-4

JMG
04-20-2005, 03:48 PM
Hann 1-8 down - that was even more difficult than winning the match I think

Yoda

Hann lost 2-10...the only good thing to come of this is that an aussie gets schooled by a pommie bstard :p

JMG
04-21-2005, 07:15 AM
my new picks:
Doherty over McManus x Stevens over White @2.03
Holt over Davis @1.81
White vs Stevens [frames +21.5] @1.85

JMG
04-23-2005, 12:28 PM
got also a good odd 2,0x for Holt vs Davis +22,5 frames

Yoda
04-23-2005, 01:23 PM
Also taken Holt
And parlayed Hendry x Higgins x Ronnie x Stevens

Only one bet for me in the Qtrs.
Murphy to take out the old ginger master @ $1.36 :cool:

JMG
04-26-2005, 07:17 AM
I've a small bet on Stevens over Hendry @2.40

JMG
04-27-2005, 07:02 PM
If Stevens is at 1.40 or better, I will back him again in the semis.

JMG
04-28-2005, 07:08 AM
Stevens x Ebdon @2.24

a bit risky but I'll give it a try

Statement:
Stevens is my favourite player.

Business:
I backed him on Batfair before championship as a winner.
Before the final I laid against him some coins, so - from business point of viev - I didn't care about the name of the new champion

But I really wanted to see Matthew as a new champion;

Well, next year, next possibillity, next chance



btw, congrats for Murphy

JMG

If O'Sullivan really doesn't play the next season, there will be around 10 players each tournament who really can win. Great thing!

I backed Stevens in the final, but also against Hendry and McCullogh, so I'm too angry.
Only Hann went on my blacklist with the unprofessional and ridiculous things he did here. :(
