Martin Gould showed bottle and desire to end his first session 5-3 down against a confident Judd Trump.
Totesport are still going 150/1 about the Pinner Potter and with the market still 1/2 the odds each -way the first two this is a steal. I've just had some of it. It's the easiest quarter of the draw and if he makes it through plays Ali Carter or Graeme Dott for a place in the semis, a match where he'd have a real chance
In other matches John Higgins won readily playing very well and it's a shame the draw is so skewed. In the bottom quarter we have Higgins, Shaun Murphy and Ronnie O'Sullivan which is why layers still go 9/2 the field headed by The Scot.
Mark Selby's form in beating Jimmy Robertson showed cause for concern, he looked tentative even though his experience meant he won easily 10-1. But he won't win the World Championship playing snooker like that, there are two many players in peak form including in his quarter Ding Junhui who could easily come up on the rails.
Head for Totesport and just say Martin Gould. Quick!
