I am not going to go into great detail here, as snooker might have only limited interest to some of you, or even none at all.
However, there looks to be a little value in, all time great, Stephen Hendry, reaching the quarter-finals.
Hendry has re-dedicated himself to the sport and has been practising for six hours per day. I do not see him as a potential winner, those days look to have gone and his nerve, is not what it was, but he has been given a very kind draw. He starts against David Gilbert and then probably meets Ali Carter, followed by Peter Ebdon.
Having lost in the first round last year, he should be very motivated to put in an improved showing at the Crucible and looks value at the 3.0 offered by Sunderlands, the average offer is closer to 2.60.
3 points Stephen Hendry to win Quarter 4, World Snooker Championship 3.0 Sunderlands.
