Snooker loopy nuts are we – we’re enhanced double crazy!
First round action continues from The Masters on Wednesday with two mouth-watering clashes featuring two former world champions - and we're making the day even better with our enhanced odds double.
Wembley Arena will be packed to the rafters as past Crucible winners Stephen Hendry and Peter Ebdon face present stars of the game in Neil Robertson and Ali Carter respectively.
14:00 - Stephen Hendry v Neil Robertson
Six-time Masters champion, seven-time world champion, five-time UK champion, countless other major tournament trophies - Stephen Hendry is a legend of the game. Fortunately for young Australian Neil Robertson, the Scotsman won the vast majority of his titles during a decade of dominance in the nineties. For that reason, we make The Melbourne Machine the 8/13 favourite in the betting, while The Ice Man is a 6/5 shot. Neil is the first leg of the enhanced odds double, and should he progress to the quarter-final will face another Scot, Stephen Maguire.
19:00 - Ali Carter v Peter Ebdon
Championship League regular Ali Carter is next up to the green baize. The Captain used the internet-only tournament, shown here on betliveTV, to gain crucial match practice, and used it - beating his opponent here on the way - to reach the final of last year's World Championship, where, unfortunately, he lost to Ronnie O'Sullivan. Even though he's never won a ranking tournament, he's fancied to win this match, and is the 1/2 favourite - although should he prevail, he'll face his nemesis The Rocket. Peter Ebdon won his only world title seven years ago, beating Stephen Hendry by a single frame. Now a resident of Dubai, The Ebdonator is still ranked in the elite top 16 in the world, but his best form is perhaps behind him. As such, he's the 6/4 outsider of the pair, and it's Ali who completes the special bet.
So, our enhanced odds double is complete, and the selections are Neil Robertson and Ali Carter. If you think they'll both reach the next round, you can take advantage of our special price of 6/4.
