Bingham didn't deserve that at all. He even admitted it himself, he was very lucky and has become rather boring. 3 more ranking events left before the World Championship, Judd could ideally do with winning 1 of them.

Going to be an interesting Worlds this year. Ronnie favourite, but Selby, Trump and Robbo all have a decent chance according to the bookies.

Can't see Ronnie being favourite, he seems not at his best, really hope i'm wrong. He seems happy in the Eurosport studio with Jimmy white's hideous wig & the awful Colin Murray ! Any chance Ronnie could drop out of the 16 before the worlds ? he's 14 atm ?

Its hard to call because everyone is so inconsistent, Selby does come alive in the world championship though. Imagine Fu, Hawkins, Trump & Bingham will do well though their all in form. Depends what Ronnie turns up, doesn't look hungry enough atm, as he said his just having fun now & doesnt care much if he loses now & enjoys the punditry just as much.

Very tight one to call either way. Trump would be a good bet as he will win one sooner rather than later, still think he makes too many mistakes though and lacks that final killer instinct, was lucky to beat hawkins in the end & could easily have beaten Bingham 9-1 but still ended up losing. Done it vs Ronnie in the past a few times in finals just doesn't kill it off

Robertson's the player i can never get my head round, looks unbeatable one minute & terrible the next. His tournament win returns are so poor considerin how good he can be

I think Ronnie will play in enough tournaments to do just enough to stay in the top 16. I don't think qualifying for the Worlds will be to his liking at all.

Well played Bingham, but whilst there was some good drama during the match, the quality itself was poor.

Snooker desperately needs a younger player to step up now.

If he slips to 16 he'd probably face Selby in Round 2....RKW you in Huddersfield tomorrow?
