<div><h2><strong>Yushan World Open </strong></h2><p><strong>October 28 – November 3<br />Yushan, China</strong></p><p>The World Snooker circuit travels to China for the Yushan World Open, an event established in 1982 in England, for which the city of Yushan has played host the previous three seasons. The three years prior between 2013-2015 where held in the Chinese City of Haikou, having been re-located from the UK in 2011.</p><p>Neil Robertson was a three-time winner when the event was held in the United Kingdom and Mark Allen has won twice in Haikou. Last year in Yushan Mark Williams beat David Gilbert 10-9 in the final.</p><h2><strong>Betting Predictions and Tips </strong></h2><p><strong>Quarter</strong> <strong>1:</strong> Judd Trump leads the way as the number one seed and plays a preliminary match against a Chinese youngster. That should stand him in good stead, and he started the new season in style winning the International Championship beating Shaun Murphy in the final. The reigning World Champion will face Joe Perry in the round of 16, who has beat him twice in the last twelve months. Perry himself has a difficult potential round of 32 match to negotiate against Riga Masters champion Yan Bingtao prior.</p><p>In the bottom section of Quarter 1 there is a difficult opening round tie between Barry Hawkins and Marcu Fu, but the winner could find themselves well placed to win what looks an easy segment. Ding Junhui and Luca Brecel are drawn in the section but look out of sorts currently.</p><p><strong>Quarter</strong> <strong>2:</strong> Mark Selby is always a player to consider, especially China where he has won many titles over the years. He has made a grinding start to the season and winning last week's English Open will have done his confidence a power of good. He faces a tricky round of 32 match against the winner of Ricky Walden and Noppon Saengkham followed by another tough potential round of 16 match against Stuart Bingham.</p><p>Shaun Murphy looks the strongest player in the bottom half of quarter two given his three successive finals in China tournaments that culminated in him winning the China Championship. He went on to perform well in the English Open last week losing to Tom Ford (147 in a deciding frame) in the round of 16.</p><p><strong>Quarter</strong> <strong>3:</strong> The top half of quarter 3 looks very weak with Stephen Maguire the only top 16 player to qualify, giving a great opportunity for a breakthrough tournament for players like Thepchayia un-Nooh, Scott Donaldson, Elliott Slessor or Xu Si. Thailand's Thepchayia un-Nooh could be worth considering at 126.00 having shown a previous liking for tournaments held in Yushan reaching the semi-final in 2016. Scotland's Scott Donaldson has made multiple semi-finals and is 17.00 to win the quarter. He must be respected having won Championship League group 4 last week and often plays well in China.</p><p>The bottom half of the quarter looks hard with last week's English Open runner up David Gilbert drawn against the talented Zhao Xintong in the opening match who has beaten both Neil Robertson and Ding Junhui in the last month. Gilbert was also the runner up in Yushan last year and a quarter finalist in 2017. The winner of Gilbert/Xintong will probably play Mark Allen in the round of 16 who is a player that plays well in China and twice a champion of this tournament when held in Haikou.</p><p><a href="http://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=168&amp;a=4417b7df-a48f-47f3-9b45-f79858bc083a&amp;f=3" target="_blank"><img alt src="https://images-production-euw2-753931602578.s3.amazonaws.com/5d582dcf927b95968483da5f/original-10-bet-new-customer-welcome-bonus" style="width:100%" /></a></p><p><strong>Quarter</strong> <strong>4:</strong> The top half of this section looks tough with Kyren Wilson, who looks a work in progress at the moment. He is making changes to his technique that has improved his break building and the results will follow soon. Iran's Hossein Vafaei looks overpriced to win the Quarter at 34.00 on the strength of his semi-final appearance in the China Championship a couple of weeks ago. There is also an attractive round of 64 match in this quarter that involves Jack Lisowski and Lou Honghao with the winner having the ability to go deep in the tournament.</p><p>Nothing much to analyse in the bottom half of this quarter because Ronnie O'Sullivan looks to have an easy draw to the quarter finals against exposed performers Dominic Dale and Fergal O'Brien. Possibly, only the two Chinese players Zhou Yuelong or his victor in the English Open, Mei Xiwen could stop the Rocket.</p><h2><strong>Final Analysis</strong></h2><p><strong>Judd</strong> <strong>Trump</strong> has a great opportunity to get his season back on track this week and 2.62 to win Quarter 1 looks generous. Two other Englishman Joe Perry and Barry Hawkins look the player who could stop him.</p><p><strong>Ronnie</strong> <strong>O'Sullivan</strong> has a very easy section of the draw making the short price of 1.91 to win Quarter 4 appealing. The fact that the ‘Rocket' is prepared to make the trip to Yushan is a tip in itself.</p><p><strong>David</strong> <strong>Gilbert</strong> has an extremely tough opening match against Zhao Xintong, which is a re-match of last week's English Open 4-3 win in what was a high-quality encounter. If he can negotiate that tricky match, he represents value to reach successive finals in Yushan and successive finals on the World Snooker tour after last week's English Open.</p><p><strong>Shaun</strong> <strong>Murphy</strong> lost nothing in his round of 16 loss to Tom Ford at the English Open and now back in China he can make if four successive finals in China so far this season.</p><h2><strong>Recommended Bets </strong></h2><p><a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=b4150791-892f-469b-9b6a-7dfc6df0fb07&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Snooker Betting Odds"><strong>Each way – Shaun Murphy @ 15.00 (14/1) Ladbrokes </strong></a></p><p><a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=bf7f64f4-cd67-4904-9b00-6ded1d41fd18&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Snooker Betting Odds"><strong>Each way – David Gilbert @ 26.00 (25/1) Bet365</strong></a></p><p><a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=a710bfac-73c1-4a57-b441-2caf1b9f397b&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Snooker Betting Odds"><strong>Quarter 1 – Judd Trump @ 2.62 (13/8) William Hill </strong></a></p><p><a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=3e56a0bf-7bdf-4fe1-b9a6-d22c7cc3dd2c&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Snooker Betting Odds"><strong>Quarter 4 – Ronnie O'Sullivan @ 1.91 (10/11) Betway</strong></a></p></div>
