2017 Shanghai Masters Snooker Preview And Tips

Published on 12/11/17

The 2017 Shanghai Masters takes place from the 13-18 November at the Shanghai Indoor Stadium in China. It will be the eleventh renewal of what has quickly become one of the most popular ranking tournaments on the calendar, and its popularity is set to increase even further this year with the final stages now welcoming 64 players – and prize money being increased to £700,000. The winners share of the prize fund is £150,000, which will be the joint biggest winners-cheque ever played for outside of the big ranking tournaments that take place in the United Kingdom.

Past winners have been a mix of some of snooker’s biggest names, with Ronnie O’Sullivan winning in 2009, Mark Selby winning in 2011, John Higgins in 2012, and Ding Junhui in 2013 and 2016. However, lesser-known players have also won here, including Dominic Dale in 2007, Ricky Walden 2008, and Kyren Wilson in 2015. The two other winners were Ali Carter 2010 and Stuart Bingham 2014.

Therefore, it’s certainly no surprise that a stellar field will be turning-up this week, and it’s quite a competitive betting heat, with the bookies making Ronnie O’Sullivan favourite.

2017 Shanghai Masters Betting

Ronnie O’Sulivan 9/2, Judd Trump 11/2, Mark Selby 11/2, Ding Junhui 15/2, John Higgins 9/1, Mark Allen 25/1, Mark Williams 28/1, Barry Hawkins 33/1, Luca Brecel 33/1, Ryan Day 50/1.

First Quarter

Ding Junhui will be favourite to progress from a first-quarter that looks very winnable, but the two-time champion isn’t at his best at the moment, and this may be a chance for Mark Allen to improve what is already an impressive record in this part of the world. He’s gone well here in the past too, making the final in 2014 and the semi-finals in 2015.

Second Quarter

Judd Trump got a drubbing from Lucas Brecel last week, and the Belgian also took out Mark Selby before surrendering a 4-2 lead to Sean Murphy, probably fatigued by his earlier efforts. It may be that he’s still fatigued, but this does look another great opportunity for Brecel to enhance his growing reputation.

Third Quarter

John Higgins looks to have been given a fantastic chance of reaching the semi-finals, enough said.

Fourth Quarter

Sometimes rankings don’t reflect ability or reputation, and both Mark Selby and Ronnie O’Sullivan, as well as the tournament organisers must be wondering the two biggest stars of the game have ended-up in the same quarter. It’s long odds-on one of them makes the semi-finals though, but having to play the other one to do so could take plenty out of them.

2017 Shanghai Masters Summary

As Selby and O’Sullivan are drawn in the fourth-quarter this week, it could be a value-play to leave both of them out this week, and instead play the three players fancied to win the other three quarters.
