Neil Robertson v Ryan Day
Ronnie O'Sullivan v Ding Junhui
Ken Doherty v Mark Allen
Matthew Stevens v Joe Delaney
Steve Davis v John Parrott

tough luck on Mark Allen to Ken Doherty in the 1st round, probably his idol.

i know it is a bit of a cliche for him, but if Ronnie can keep his head then he will surely be champion. If he isnt then 10-12 players have a really good chance. The Worlds bring out the best in so many players - Stevens, Ebdon, Murphy, Doherty, Hendry, Dott etc. It should be a really good tournament - looking forward to the first round battle between the BBC pundits Davis v Parrott. Also look out for Ryan Day and Judd Trump, 2 really exciting young players!!

I thought Doherty was world No. 1? Ten ahead of him in the betting?

absolutely wide open, anybody could win it.

best value bet Robertson at 16/1
