Its a ranking event too? Jesus fuck. At least with a prize pool of £2.5 million that will mean it will be open to every player, unlike that tour championship shite.

Looking 4 unexpected wins out of 4 then. Maguire is especially fantastic.

Just saw that on Twitter.
Outrageous!

Also something outrageous.
Joe Perry is ranked 16?
He's got to be like Wayne Warren's age? :lol:
He's been knocking around for donkeys years!

4 games, 4 'upsets'. Opening up very nicely, but I can't see it continuing tomorrow.

I was being a tad bit facetious with his age.😅
I forget that a lot of snooker pros ultimately turn pro in their late teens or even mid teens.

This 4th frame of Kryen v Jack is a bit of a disgrace.

So thats 6/8 lower ranked players winning. With only Robertson and Selby getting close of the losers. Must be the biggest bloodbath at the masters in a very long time.

I fancy Higgins with all his grit and experience to go on and win it.

The whole event has been a dire clusterfuck. Only one century a game on average.
