JAMES WADE v MICHAEL SMITH: Betting preview James Wade is high on confidence after beating Steve ‘The Adonis’ Beaton 4-1 in the second round. After the first set, Wade was averaging 111, ending the match with 99.39. He led 3-0 before Beaton hit back but The Machine clinched it on double top.
Michael Smith had a bit tougher draw, but he knocked Mervyn King out of the tournament with a 4-3 score - averaging 93.83 and hitting 14 maximums. In the opening round "Bully Boy" struggled against Ricky Evans despite throwing at an average of 96.78.
