Mark Selby – Jack Lisowski Match Prediction | 10-09-2019 02:30

Lisowski also has a great draw here with the highest ranked player he could meet before the Last 16 being Jimmy Robertson. Jackpot was one of the most improved players last season with a 67% match win rate in ranking events (7th highest). He has continued that with impressive form so far this season reaching the final of the Riga Masters and the Quarter final of the World Open.

The format for this tournament is very short, only best of 7 frame matches from the first round all the way to and including the final. This should allow for some surprise results where some the favourites will inevitable fall before the later stages. Therefore it may be best to oppose some of the shorter odds players in this field and take a chance on some promising players at bigger odds. Also with many of the worlds top players absent for this event the winning place is really wide open for the 128 players in the draw. Looking back at the previous winners there are some players on the list that dont normally win tournaments like Michael Holt, Barry Pinches and even last season with Michael White.

Ford seems to like this event he reached the final in 2016 missing out 4-2 to Mark Selby and got to the last 16 last season. Ford has a good draw here there is no player in his quarter ranked inside the top 30. The world ranked number 33 is a heavy break builder, he has made 187 career centuries (34th on the all time list) & has made 3 maximum breaks, only 14 players have ever record 3 or more.

He therefore entered the UK Championship in good form and looked to be progressing into the second round as he led Michael Leslie 40. Lisowski began the 2013/2014 season by qualifying for the 2013 Wuxi Classic where he whitewashed Tian Pengfei 50 in the first round, before being narrowly beaten 54 by Mark Williams in the second.[25][26] At the European Tour event, the Antwerp Open, Lisowski won five matches to advance to the semi-finals where he lost 42 to Mark Selby.

Thailands Speed Demon won his first ranking event last season winning the snooker shoot-out in his typical rapid-fire style. So the short format should suit Un-Nooh, however he is not only about speed he pushed the world champion Judd Trump to a decider at the world championships and also looked on form also winning his first two games this season.

Lisowski had a very good season in the Players Tour Championship series of tournaments in the 2011/2012 season. He reached the quarter-finals of Event 6 and Event 9 and went one better in Event 5, where he was knocked out in the last 4 against compatriot, and eventual winner, Andrew Higginson.

Michael White is the defending champion having beat Shaun Murphy Kyren Wilson 4-2 in last years final. The tournament is named in honour of the three times Masters champion who died in 2006. 128 players will compete for the winning prize of 20,000 and coverage can be followed on Eurosport Player. The venue is Stadthalle in Frth, Germany. It will be held from the 22nd-26th August. The Paul Hunter Classic is the third ranking event of the 2018-2019 season.

He showed at the last world championship he is still a force to be reckoned within the game winning five matches to reach the quarter final. Like Sijun he has also won both of his games so far this season completing two centuries on route. The Captain is one of the highest ranked players here in Riga at world number 17.

My granddad was Ukrainian, although I'm regularly told that it's a Polish name. During an interview with Eurosport's commentator Przemek Kruk, Lisowski was asked about the origins of his surname, he replied: "Obviously living in England and having the surname 'Lisowski' makes me stand out as it's definitely not an English name. People often struggle to pronounce it and it's usually a good conversation starter.
