The 16 best in-form potters (certainly not Graham, then!) head to Wolverhampton this week for the 2023 Players Championship.
Notable omissions from the field include Ronnie O’Sullivan, Neil Robertson and John Higgins, as the door jars open for a new winner and a grab at the £385,000 prize.
Let’s take a look at three outright picks inside the Aldersley Leisure Village:
Mark Allen to win the 2023 Players Championship @ 11/2 with bet365*
Mark Allen gained 516,000 ranking points to qualify for the Players Championship – 372,000 more than Ryan Day in second spot!
His dominance in ranking tournaments throughout the 2022-23 season sees the Northern Irishman arrive in Wolverhampton as a second-favourite behind Judd Trump at 11/2 with bet365.
The Grand Prix, UK Championship and Northern Ireland Open winner was stopped in the quarter-finals of the Welsh Open last week but showed more than enough on the table to suggest he will run deep at the Players. He starts out against Joe O’Connor who qualified by the skin of his teeth.
Judd Trump to reach the final of the 2023 Players Championship @ 2/1 with bet365
If Allen isn’t the man in Wolverhampton this week then it’ll probably be Judd Trump who stops him in the semi-finals.
Trump is a two-time winner of this event and will be looking to end a run of two successive seasons being dumped out in the opening round.
Trump ended his title-less run by scooping the Masters in January and has the big-game mentality to succeed for a third time at the Players.
A run to the final is priced well at 2/1 with bet365.
Shaun Murphy to win his quarter of the 2023 Players Championship @ 2/1 with bet365
Shaun Murphy will be hoping to delay his commentating duties for as long as possible this week.
The former world champion won this event in it’s debut season in 2011 and made six appearances since.
He was a losing finalist at last week’s Welsh Open and has recently made the semi-final of the Grand Prix, looking in good form.
He shares a quarter with Mark Selby who isn’t at his best, meaning 2/1 provides real value for the “Magician” to conjure up at least two wins.
