Snooker live stream is still available online from the World Snooker Championship at the Crucible - but who will walk off with the coveted title?
Neil Robertson seems determined to make amends for his first-round exit at the World Snooker Championship last year and is on course to see off David Gilbert in the second round on Thursday.
The Australian was beaten by Judd Trump in his opening match in 2011 but made light work of Ken Doherty this year as he secured a comfortable 10-4 victory.
Seven seeded players have already been dumped out this year as Ding Junhui joined the growing list of high-profile first-round casualties on Wednesday, with Mark Allen, Shaun Murphy, Stuart Bingham, Graeme Dott, Stephen Lee and Martin Gould all failing to get past the first hurdle.
Indeed, world number one Mark Selby is in big trouble and needs to produce a fightback if he is to overcome a deficit of 6-3, with his match against Barry Hawkins set to resume on Wednesday evening.
Gilbert impressed with a hard-fought 10-8 victory over Gould but Robertson is a different proposition and the world number 68 faces a monumental task if he is to get the better of the 2010 champion.
It is hard to see anything other than a Robertson win in this particular second-round tie, which is priced at 1/7, while Gilbert can be backed at 9/2 with BetFred
Robertson looked relaxed and confident in his opening tie against Doherty and should be able to get past Gilbert with relative ease.
The world number three can be backed at evens to come out on top with a -5.5 frame handicap and this could well be the best bet in this particular fixture as Robertson continues his march towards the latter stages of the competition, although if he does get past Gilbert he will almost certainly face either Ronnie O’Sullivan or Mark Williams.
The other second-round match to begin on Thursday sees eighth seed Stephen Maguire take on qualifier Joe Perry, who hammered Dott 10-1 in his first-round tie.
Maguire avoided a potential first-round banana skin by seeing off youngster Luca Brecel in his opening match, while Perry’s form is hard to judge so far in this tournament – purely because of how bad Dott was.
Maguire can be backed at 2/9 to book a spot in the last eight, while Perry is 3/1 to seal the win.
Perry, the current world number 26, will have taken a great deal of confidence from his victory over Dott and, although it appears unlikely he will be able to get the better of Maguire, he may be worth some consideration at 4/5 with a +4.5 frame handicap.
