Quickfire Format Plays Right Into Selby’s Hands

Snooker Betting: Live On British Eurosport 2: Sat 15.00: The Snooker World Open breaks off in Glasgow on Saturday, Sep 18 and here, the Daily Star’s KEVIN FRANCIS casts his eyes over the baize…

THE short, quickfire best-of-five matches at the World Open look ideally suited to the temperament of Leicester’s Mark Selby, an attractive 9/1 chance with Ladbrokes. The tournament has an innotive feel about it with a random draw and those short matches right up to the best-of-nine final.

Selby has the ability to survive under pressure, as he showed by winning the Pokerstars.com Masters final 10-9 against Ronnie O’Sullivan last season. He said: “I don’t tend to feel nervous when a match goes close, because I’m
able to draw on the experience of winning tight matches in the past, and I’ve won more final-frame deciders than most players”.

Favourite Ronnie O’Sullivan is a best-priced 7/1 with Ladbrokes to land the £100,000 first prize while other big names involved are Betfred.com World Champion Neil Robertson (16/1 Boylesports, Sportingbet and Paddy Power) and top Scots Stephen Maguire (16/1 Boylesports), Stephen Hendry (50/1 Boylesports) and Graeme Dott (66/1 Sportingbet).

SUGGESTED BETS: I fancy a touch of each-way (half odds first and second) with Mark Selby (9/1 Ladbrokes) and world champion Neil Robertson (16/1 Boylesports, Sportingbet and Paddy Power).
