2022 German Masters Snooker Qualifying – Day 5 Tips and Betting Preview

The qualifying competition for the German Masters continues on Friday with another full day of action as four more players will book their place at the Tempodrom in Berlin and another bunch will look to go within a win of emulating them.

We’ve seen some big names on the baize already this week and on Friday we have the latest ranking event winner on show mixed in with some high quality players so we should head into the weekend with a decent day of action.

Morning Session

Two exciting left-handers occupy the main tables in the morning session as they bid to make it through to the second round of the competition. Jack Lisowski hasn’t really set the world alight this season but he made the final of this last year although he missed out on the full Tempodrom experience so he’ll be eager to make progress here. He takes on Andrew Pagett on one main table, while over on the other main offering Thepchaiya Un-Nooh will be out for a win when he goes up against Fan Zhengyi.

Two other matches take place in this morning session with Lu Ning the biggest name among the four on show. He hasn’t really got going this season yet either but he has a great chance to pick up a win when he takes on Rory McLeod on one of the outside tables. The other one has Liam Highfield looking to move to within a win when he goes up against Farakh Ajaib who was on the TV table against John Higgins in Belfast last week.

Afternoon Session

This is the session where the four tickets on the plane to Berlin will get punched when the second round matches take place. Neil Robertson is the star name on show and after he eased past Fraser Patrick in the first round he’ll be expected to get past Michael White to seal a trip to Berlin. The other leading name on show in this session is Ricky Walden. He will be looking to follow up his routine win over Jackson Page when he meets Simon Lichtenberg, who is a win away from competing in the main draw of his home tournament.

This session is so good Luca Brecel can only get himself out on the outside table but he is a win away from a return to the Tempodrom where he has made the final in the past. He’ll be eager to win through but to get there he has to come past Wu Yize who walloped Jamie Wilson on Thursday. The other match in this session involves two Chinese players as Zhang Anda meets Si Jiahui in what is a great opportunity for both men to make it through to the final stages.

Evening Session

This is the session where Mark Allen will be looking to make progress. He won the Northern Ireland Open last week so heads into this German Masters qualifying section in fine form. He has a potentially awkward challenge against Alfie Burden who fancies himself against anyone. While those two are competing on one main table, Ali Carter will be in action on the other. Carter meets Robert Milkins who remains dangerous when he is on it.

There are two other matches taking place over the course of the evening with Lee Walker one of those looking to come out on top over on the outside tables. He has a date with the Chinese player Lyu Haotian while over on the other table Sunny Akani will look to kick his season into life after a slow start when he meets the veteran Michael Judge, who is back on the tour after a while away having come through Q-School.

Betting

There isn’t a whole lot to like on Friday but I was a fan of Si Jiahui when he burst onto the scene and was surprised to see him drop off the tour. Whether it was the struggles of playing behind closed doors or some other Covid related issue which saw his form disappear, it was a surprise to me. He looks to be in better touch this season though and already has wins over Matthew Stevens and Graeme Dott this season even though he is only in events as a Q-School top up.

Zhang Anda made his route back onto tour via the Chinese qualifying event earlier in the year but his win over Ben Woollaston in the first round was the first time he had shown up with anything resembling the form we are used to seeing from him. He did bang in a 140 break in that match so he is cueing well but there is more upside in the game of Jiahui and regular readers will know I always want to be on the younger scorer in these kind of matches. I’ll take Si Jiahui to see of fhis Chinese colleague here.
