International Championship Snooker 2023 Qualifying – Day 6 Tips and Betting Preview

The final day of the International Championship qualifying competition prior to those matches held over to the main venue takes place at Ponds Forge in Sheffield on Saturday when the final six spots in China are up for grabs.

We have seen the majority of the leading lights playing their qualifying match which will make for a competitive couple of sessions to round off the competition although it might be that the quality drops a touch.

Morning Session

Ricky Walden is the highest ranked player remaining on show in the qualifying competition and he will headline the morning session when he goes up against the Chinese player Jiang Jun for a place in the main draw. Pang Junxu is the other home player looking to book a spot in a tournament in his homeland. He will have to get the better of Zak Surety if he is going to get there. The other match in this session sees Scott Donaldson taking on Louis Heathcote for a spot in the main draw.

Afternoon Session

The final session of action in the qualifying competition features three matches with the World Championship quarter finalist Jak Jones the leading player on show. His season hasn’t really got going yet but it has the chance to on Saturday afternoon when he takes on the inconsistent Aaron Hill. Elsewhere, Oliver Lines meets Lukas Kleckers for a place in the main draw while Liam Highfield goes up against Daniel Wells in the other game.

I’ve earned a few quid backing Daniel Wells over the course of 2023 and I don’t see any reason to shy away from him against a Liam Highfield who hasn’t really got going this season. He has played three matches this term and lost two of them. The one he won was against Jimmy White, which might have looked a good result towards the end of last season but isn’t looking a particularly inspiring result this term and I think he’s there for the taking for an improved Wells.

Wells has qualified for every event bar the English Open this season and it took Stephen Maguire to nail an outrageous fluke in the deciding frame for him to beat him so the Welshman isn’t going too badly at all. Wells actually made a couple of centuries in defeat to Maguire. He has won 33 frames this season and scored 13 breaks of 70 or more so Wells is scoring well and I repeatedly say that half of the battle in these events is scoring. He just looks in better form than Highfield and I’m expecting a Wells win here.
