Nah he didn't score that well in this qualifiers, and had his 2 chinese opponents played a little bit bettter, especially Pengfei, he would have lost there. Of course he didn't and fair play to him to have reached the last stage, but Milkins was just a step too far and was ahead in all departments.
Nevermind though, we have some very exciting talents and newcomes to the Crucible this year, like Lisoswki, White, Baird, Woolaston, Selt, Poomjaeng (impressive from the man from Thailand, emulating Wattana as another Thailand player to make it through) and obviously Gouldy who isnt a newcomer and knows all about it there. The draw is fantastic, with some old names also making the Crucible, like King, Ebdon (impressive 22nd sucessive appearance), M.Davis and Fu of course who is also very much welcome.
All is shapping up to, on paper at least, be one of the best Worlds ever, and can't wait to see tomorrow who is drawn against whom.
