From my experience, I have to agree that playing a tip in takes time and should work even more into Trump's hands.

My treble's looking good now and got another 150 on murphy at 7/4 when he was 1-0 down. In play betting is so exploitable!
I've never considered in play snooker betting, will def have to take a look!

Fancy Trump v Robertson in semis but i'm not sure about higgins v murphy if he makes it. Will see how the rest of this match goes before i think about the double.
I hope Murphy gets through, as I have a slight fear over Judd playing Higgins. He's the only player I can see turning Judd over at the moment.

This is not looking good. Judd looks all at sea and robertsons slowing down tactics seem to be tilting him. Needs to get in the balls!!

if my lucks anything to go by atm then judd will come back to 5-5 and then lose 6-5

example of said luck is the double i put on mboro win v coventry (who are bottom of championship) and colchester win v chesterfield (who are bottom of league 1)

both losing 1-0 lol

Think Robertson got into Trumps head abit, knew the writing was on the wall very early on. Hope Murphy does the busniess tonight.

Go on Murphy! Robertson pissed me off yesterday with the nonsense at the end of the game and in the interview.

Got a feeling he's gonna win though.

Re: Ipoker Snooker Degens 2012

Haven't watched a single ball of the final. A bit sickened with it all tbh. Don't like either of the players in the final and agree with you danny, Robertson's antics when he potted frame ball were out of order. I would be raging if a guy pulled that **** when he beat me.

Looks like Trump is just going to be another O'Sullivan instead of a Hendry, Higgins or Davis.

Re: Ipoker Snooker Degens 2012

Trump is a pretty terrible match player in my humble opinion, one who uses over aggression as his key excuse to lose and means to preserve his ego - much like Ronnie did before him and Alex Higgins did before Ronnie.

Everything has to go right for this class of players to win big tourneys, which combined with the very low prices the market pushes them to on the basis of how popular they are and how slick their A games can be, makes them pretty consistent lays in all major tournaments imo.

Good point. Would have made alot of money laying ronnie over the years. Could probably do the same with Judd.

Trump is very young still, give him a chance. In 10 years if he hasn't changed then you can say your right. Robertson was the same when he came over first, all pots no safety, now he's one of the best match player in the world. I wouldn't give up on Trump yet on the basis of 1 loss, bound to have off days now and agian, but he's young and has alot of improvement to do still.

I'm inclined to agree with both of you. Hendry could be described in the same way, and I dont think anyone will disagree that he is one of the greats of the game.

I've yet to see Trump come from behind in a match yet though, so he still has a bit to prove.

I agree, it would be interesting to see him 4 or 5 down in a longer session, say 35 frames or so. The likes of Higgins, Robbo, Selby are very capable of turning that around as proved before. And yes obv Hendry is a great if not the greatest.

Re: Ipoker Snooker Degens 2012

Hendry is without doubt the greatest player of all time ..

Hendry in his day was as close to a machine as you can get .. his cue ball control was second to none and made the game look ridiculously easy ..

Ive yet to see anyone before or after him that could genuinely compete with him when he was on his A game .

Re: Ipoker Snooker Degens 2012

My tip troubles came back to haunt me tonight ..

I had put this tip back on and played a few league matches with no problems at all ..

Had a last 16 singles match tonight ( best of 5 ) and my tip fell off at the start of the 2nd frame ..

I had to use a cue from the rack that had seen better days .. putting chalk on it was a waste of time ... lost 3-2 !!
