    That's the case with Trump soo often. Great result for Nigel Bond! He had lost six ranking matches in a row prior to this tournament. I wasn't surprised he beat Brecel, cause Luca is always up for a defeat to anybody. But never imagined Bond could beat Trump.

    Also pleased to see that Michael White and Marco Fu got two wins here, with each of them beating a Top 16 player. Fu is already out now, but maybe his win over Wilson is a sign for better times again.

            Ian Burns is a good lad and a superb player but he has let himself get mugged tonight sadly.

              Should have won a couple at the start , but if you don’t take your chances against top players you ain’t going to win.

                Indeed and a reason why some players win tournaments and others don't.

                  It's a perenial problem for all players with a chicken wing cue action, if the upper arm drops from the shoulder before the strike then the cue comes across the line, Graham Dott is the same and chucks one in now and again when using power. White and Dott should really not do it as they are both quite short in stature so their grip hand is behind the vertical using a standard length cue, but Mark Williams and fellow welshman Ryan Day are quite tall and their grip hands are almost bang on the vertical so it's quite easy for them to fall into it; a longer cue would sort it for them, just a couple of inches to move the grip hand back a bit to the days when they were younger, not so tall, the cue fitted them better and they potted them off the lightshade.

                    It's basically a sign of insecurity.

                    • Williams played woefully badly , no hours put in and he admitted it . Trump played very poorly and never worked harder . Could he have done too much practising and gone stale ? Can you overdo working on your game ? Akani is always at it, his father has him back on the table shortly after he loses in a tournament . Can you do too much and go stale by overworking ?

                        He can't keep drawing from the well of magnificent pots for ever, he needs to get hold of the cueball, so that when it dries up, he doesn't need to.

                        EDIT: Can't imagine why the well analogy popped into my head.

                          I was at the Barbican in York yesterday and I'd certainly say that the majority of the crowd were willing Nigel Bond on. The talent Trump posseses is clear for all to see but for me he's not threatening to be a 'peoples champion' in the mould of Higgins, White or O'Sullivan just yet despite his flair.

                                I guess whats important is that they are aware and recognise the fault, but more importantly when its most likely to occur. It probably needs a little pre practised drill that helps when the power/pressure shot arises. I've little doubt both Dott and White have tried to address this and Dott has certainly achieved more than many thought possible so hopefully White can do similar.
                                No cheap shots...well maybe the odd one if its funny...
