It’s just a few days since sports gambling fans witnessed another remarkable victory for Ronnie O’Sullivan in the UK Masters snooker tournament, his fifth win in this competition. Ardent snooker gambling enthusiasts will know that even though O’Sullivan no longer plays the full circuit, when he does enter a tournament he is difficult to beat. This latest victory against world ranked number two Mark Selby by 10 frames to 4 simply underlines his superiority in the sport. Next week the rest of the tour will be in Berlin for the German Masters and fans of gambling on snooker will see a return to normality with Neil Robertson installed as favourite at 9/2 with Paddy Power in the absence of the Rocket. Mark Selby or Ding Junhui are joint favourites to reach the final along with Robertson and both are 13/2 to achieve a victory. After the German Masters snooker gambling fans will concentrate on the next ranking event, the Welsh Open from the 19th February to the 2nd March in Newport. All the leading snooker players then head off to China for the Haikou World Open in Hainan followed by the China Open in Beijing which concludes on the 6th April. The whole circuit then returns to the UK for the next ranking tournament to stir the interest of the many Irish fans of gambling on snooker. The World Championship which starts at the Crucible in Sheffield on the 19th April will of course see the return of O’Sullivan, and he is already firm favourite to repeat his Masters success. In fact with odds currently being quoted at around 2/1 snooker gambling fans may not see any other winner. These days sports gambling fans who follow snooker seem to have two types of tournament, those with O’Sullivan and the rest.
