Sorry to harp on about Martin Gould in the snooker but I'm one for value and you can get 11/1 for him to win his quarter of the draw (Boylesports).
This means for the bet to be successful he needs to make the semis so must beat Judd Trump and then beat the winner of the Ali Carter and Graeme Dott match.
This should be around the 6/1 mark and is heavily recommended simply because Gould has illustrated he's here to enjoy himself. Last night it was clear he fancied the job and played well - taking on (and getting) some trademark tough pots. And this in front of a packed Crucible crowd.Though he started badly going 3-0 down but said it took a couple of frames to get used to the new cloth on the table which causes the balls to slide a bit more. This meant the pockets played a lot bigger when the balls were hit at gentle pace. Though they will tighten up markedly until the cloth is changed again next week.
Gould and Trump resume this afternoon at 2.30.
