Monday 27th of March ~ Sunday 2nd of April at Students Gymnasium, Beijing, China

Last 16 stage, and the biggest suprise of the previous round has to go to Mark Joyce knocking out 5 time World Champion Ronnie O'Sullivan in a decider, to set a meeting with home favourite Ding Junhui who looks to be in impressive form.

So does Judd Trump, who's only lost 1 frame so far, and Mark Selby as well.

John Higgins finally overcame nemesis Mark Davis, and now earns a meeting with long time rival Mark Williams.

Who shall win their respective matches and move into the Quarter-Finals?

DRAW

Last 16

Judd Trump v Tian Pengfei Trump leads 2-1
Rory McLeod v Hossein Vafeei Ayouri Never played before
Shaun Murphy v Michael White Murphy leads 4-1
Mark Williams v John Higgins Higgins leads 30-19
-----------------------------------------------------
Stuart Bingham v Kyren Wilson Wilson leads 3-0
Mark Joyce v Ding Junhui Ding leads 2-0
Daniel Wells v Stephen Maguire Maguire leads 3-0
Andrew Higginson v Mark Selby Selby leads 5-4

It's all about the Crucible now, maybe he can get something going there. There's always hope.


Not looking great, but history has proved players can go on a bad run of form leading to the Crucible, and then have a great run there, maybe win it.

Obviously it's better to go there with some form, but like I said its a unique tournament to the rest of them.

this is the first time since about 1995 i dont make Ronnie a genuine contender for the WC even in 2013 when he won having not played a season he was going there having no battle scars because he did not play but this season he has so many battle scars.

Should he win there and funnier things have happened it would be right up there with Hendry's win in 1999 having had really poor results during the season.

Ronnie seems to be going backwards after a strong first half of the season. Hendry's form had turned a bit in the other direction the later part of 98-99 season though, winning the Scottish Open and I remember watching his big comeback to beat Stephen Lee in the Irish Masters final. Although looking at Cue Tracker he seemed to have a Holt esq problem with Tony Drago that season.

You didn't make him a genuine contender in 2013. You said it was so unlikely he'd win, you'd run up the high street with a daffodil in your bottom.

Did you accidentally put your hand on his bum when having a photo taken? New forum members - Snookerfan has history in this regard. Quite the story.

Technically, he didn't win it until May.

Really? Good man. :hatoff:

Remind me. Has Judd made one before?

This is his 3rd in his career - but his first televised maximum.

This is the first year where I actually have no expectations from Ronnie, I'm actually less excited about the WC because of that, but live in hope that maybe Trump can claim it finally, he's good enough.

Saying that, I will still never count Ronnie out until he's beaten, he still has the ability to turn it on without warning or hesitation, so who knows! Jeez it's like being a Ronnie-fan in the noughties again lol

i think it makes the championship more exiting.

Ronnie has been such a formidable opponent for the last 5 years its been a 3 horse race prior to sheffield

Ronnie, Selby and Robertson ok Bingham won it but nobody saw that coming.

this year its the most wide open tournament ever because of the way Ronnie is playing
