Last 16 of the International Championship, and defending champion John Higgins is still in it, as well as China's number 1 player Ding Junhui, European Masters Champion Jud Trump playing against a rejuvenated James Wattana, as well as the likes of 5 time World Champion Ronnie O'Sullivan, Neil Robertson, plus WN1 and World Champion Mark Selby, the latter playing against recent English Open champion Liang Wenbo, in what promisses to be the tie of the round.

Who shall progress one round further and into the Quarter-Finals?

Selby v Wenbo is a cracker, sadly it's way too early for me, but I'll watch highlights of it later.

As for Ronnie, he should and most likely will get revenge after two bad losses against Holt previously. At the WGP he started playing well from 3-0 down but it was a bit too late for that. In Shanghai, he was clearly match rusty.

Hi there!

Could you give me a quick summary how Ronnie is doing so far this week? Performance / attitude?
Thanks!

Performance wise it's been business like, just doing enough to win his matches. Started well against Xiao and Maflin, both 2-0 up, but seemed to run out of gas a bit, and their opponents played well after that too. Ronnie played better yesterday, today if Maflin had gone 5-3 up things could have gone diferent...

Attitude been very good so far, not taking any silly risks or shots on, and playing safe when he has to.

Now plays Holt as you know.

OK, that's better than I expected to be honest.

I would love him to win this tournament, his first ranker in China for 7 years now.

Yeah far too long. This is the best China tournament now, at least money ranking wise, it's equal to winning the UK Champs.

But it's still a long way from winning the tournament, I certainly won't be thinking about that being China and all.

Ridiculous isn't it. I was halfway through a match from yesterday.

Well,welll,wellll,what do i see,Yet again Ronnie is up against Holty.




It would be really something if Holty can pull off the hattrick against Ronnie and win 3 matches in a row againmst him.





COME ON MICHAEL!,make it buisness as usual,you beat him in the last 2 meetings,time to do it again,send the predictable,borin old Ronnie packin. :-D







Lovely to see Wattana in the last 16 in a ranking tourney again,i wonder when the last time he got so far in a ranker.






Whats up with Selbs,has he gotten bored with the hideous chocolate,gravy brownish looking clothing he wore for a while,this morning he,s sporting very suave black. :-)

I turn on and Wenbo is potting them off the lampshades. Ace! Such a beautiful player to watch.

C'mon, turn Selby over!! 2-1 with a century.

As for Holt, he can't string more than a couple of wins together. What's the point of him again?

Morning HF :)

So far this morning all 3 favourites have won, Higgins, Murphy and Bingham, although Bingo wasn0t that huge favourite against Carter.

Selby could be on his way home.

CMON WENBO!
