Anthony Urmston-Toft selects an `outsider` to fire himself into the quarter finals and learns a valuable lesson from Stuart Kellett

 

Well I wont go into yesterday, bad day of picks.

Today is a new day and the games we have today are:

  • Gary Thompson - Alan Norris

  • Stephen Bunting - Scott Waites (6)

  • Robbie Green (14) - Dean Winstanley (3)

First game should be a good one Gary “Mr Steady” vs. Chuck. Well I heard that Giraffes were created when Chuck Norris uppercut a horse. So with that I’m going for Alan.

Second game is so tough to pick for me on one hand Stephen is a good mate and played excellently in the first round. Scott has more gears in him, can he muster up the power scoring? Maybe. But on form I’m going for the Bullet. Stephen gets the nod.

Third game again is difficult as both had wishy-washy opening games. However, both are in the a180 stable. Known Kong for a while. I will give him the win but just could go all the way, sudden death, just hope Chuck is not near by.

The surprise last night was the change in form of Stuart Kellett. He was brilliant in the first round but couldn`t capture that same form last night. The BBC commentators said that he was trying to help his friends out with things and didn`t seem to be concentrating as hard on is pre-match practice as Jan.  If the reports from the BBC are true then Stuart has given all players a valuable lesson although it was a painful one for him The 3 P’s. Preparation, Preparation, Preparation-Stops a Poor Performance.
