      If Robbie wins it'll blow the tournament wide open...

              Yes, Day and Perry too.

                Good win for Robbie. Struggled over the line, and Judd will be disappointed with all the chances he missed in the decider after the effort to get back into the match.

                Nice to see Ken get a win which should keep him on the tour. Played really well.

                  Yeah, Ken has two big victories in the recent times. ROS and MJW.

                    This is a tough one. It is an important tournament rankingswise for some of the fringe players, or top players after a particular goal, but i think most top players don't want to spend the energy here, they want to save it for the Worlds.

                    Trump, Selby and Williams, all who lost, i don't think they care

                    With some strategic losses, Judd has taken some of the pressure off going into the worlds

                    He is no longer the 'hot hand'

                      Didn't he last beat O'Sullivan 16 years ago? I would hardly call that recent times.

                        My bad, I was thinking about their uk championship match which ROS pinched on the decider. I thought Ken won it, but not.

                          And that's all for Ding. He just didn't seem focused today.

                            Only decent final now would be Robertson v Lisowski

                            for me anyway,apart from Brecel, not fussed about all other players left

                              Weird event, isn't it? The China Open usually has a very high standard of play, and the business end is usually full of top players, but the last64 round has been shocking this year.

                              Still some quality players left though, and also a few of the younger players who have been on the verge of a big breakthrough for a while now. This is the second most luxurious tournament of the entire season, so unless it's Robertson, Bingham or Maguire (or one of the real veterans), someone will be winning the biggest title of their career this week.

                                Having to miss out on this one cos Quest aren't covering it, but I'd be interested to know if they've managed to break the one dozen mark for crowd attendance.
