There will be 34 players in Australia going for 5th Australian Open Crown and it has thrown up some interesting encounters after Qualifying in Crawley.

Defending Champion Judd Trump will be playing one of his best mates Jack Lisowski and Jack has won 3 out of 4 matches the last time Judd beat Jack was back in 2010 since then its been all Jack including at this stage of the 2013 China Open.

Other match ups is Hossein Vafaei Ayouri match against the Indian Open champion Michael White and Ali Carter playing World Championship Runner up Shaun Murphy.

4 years ago Ali Carter partnered Mark Selby in the World Cup this time its World Champion Stuart Bingham and Stuart will be arriving Australia having played the World Cup but how will his first individual match as World Champion go against Fergal O'Brien.

Yes, bring it on. Seems that some of the top players missing during the very early stages of the season. But I have never lost my appetite for the cracking jokes. And, indeed, it looks that I never will.

Hi,
just to let you know, there's a fantasy snooker game to play at fantasy-point.com if anyone is interested. It was fun last season but could do with some new players... The Australian Open competition is only open for entries till 1am CET tomorrow, but if you miss it you can still create a team and play in other tournaments.

Cheers! :-)

Cheers, I guess it's gonna be Higgins over Maguire then, I'd have preferred Maguire's match.
No need to guess for the other matches today.

I had heard of him, but just kind of remember his name from previous wild cards and Oceania championships.

Just done a bit of research (which I wish I did before I predicted a 0-5 loss for him!):

In 2012 he reached the final round of qschool event 1, losing 1-4 to Martin O'Donnell.

Also, in the most recent IBSF World Championship, he reached the Quarter Finals, losing 4-6 to Zhao Xintong.

Not bad, thanks!

Higgins is struggling a bit, Georgiou played a few poor positional shots plus got a massive kick on a crucial red after a Higgins error in the second frame.

5th and 6th were similar frames, enaged in a safety battle behind the pack, Higgins solved both of them and put in breaks of 83 and 74. Now Michael just missed the black following the first red in the 7th fame, John on a 27 break and counting

edit
just ended at 27 missing a pink

4-5 to Fergal from 4-2 is quite bad tho, I'm not that much surprised only because Stu was embarrassing in the two matches I've seen at the World Cup but I thought it had to do with conditions, travel, etc.
