Two of the snooker world's quickest and most entertaining players cross the paths for the third time in a month this afternoon. First Judd Trump won 4-2 in the English Open then a week later Jack Lisowski got revenge at the International Championship in China blowing his opponent away 6-2.
Jack Lisowski bright start to the current season continues and the Riga Masters finalist is moving close to an elite top 16 place that his consistency deserves. Judd Trump has not been in his very best form which has put him under the microscope from the media as something of an under achiever though there has been palpable promise in a few of his recent displays .
Key Stats & Facts
- Head 2 head – Trump 5-5 Lisowski
- World Ranking – Trump – 5 / Lisowski – 17
- Trump – 1.66 Boylesport
- Lisowski – 2.43 Marathon bet
Both players always seem comfortable playing the other but given Jack is just starting to fulfil his promise after being something of a slow burner the 50/50 heads up record over the years is impressive given Judd has always had the superior ranking.
After their respective seasons thus far this match could be pivotal for Judd Trump given Jack Lisowski is a leading player in all but his current ranking . This the most difficult draw he could possibly have at the last 32 stage and the knives will be out in the media for him if he does lose . Great players tend to rise to the occasion so we will keep stakes small but in truth we have enough reasons to back Jack Lisowski at odds against today.
I would also advise splitting stakes and taking an extra point on the alternative handicap at a full point more given both players propensity to win their frames in quick succession.
