But he is still going to have to play out of his skin if he is going to give O'Sullivan a hard match in the Final.

I dislike Carter's mannerisms and the way he minces round the table intensely but he is playing some decent snooker I'll give him that.

Maguire on the other hand is making his "Oh I don't care, woe is me" face.

He's not much of a trier, isn't Stephen Maguire.

As long as he has the grey shirt he has a chance. It must be a superstitious thing. Apparently, John Higgins always wears white socks to the Crucible.

Agree with Dennis. A must win frame for Stephen. It will be a bit of a boost as Ali had a big chance early doors.

You see this is why Maguire never struck me as world champion material. He is simply NOT a big match player. In crunch matches that could define his career he has just failed to do himself justice which is just not a trait that world champions have.

Maguire having exactly the same problem he had yesterday: poor control of the cue ball, so he has to work much too hard for his breaks. Once again there, a straightforward pink and he completely messed up position on the next shot.

Carter is playing lovely stuff, his safety has mostly been spot on, and when he's had chances he's taken them.

Maguire's technique simply does not hold up in these longer frame matches. He will only ever be good in the bo11's imo. Simply a bad match up for him, he may be better at high breaks than Ali but everything else Ali is better at.

Look who Maguire has had in his draw; Brecel who is just a kid. Joe Perry, hasnt been good for years = down the rankings. And Hendry, say no more.

Maguire had a lucky draw.

hendry beat higgins, unless there was some money riding (cough cough)there is no real luck there,

to get to a semi you have to either beat big name players, or players that have beaten big name players- same difference

they just showed Ronnie's break in the final frame of this afternoon. Makes it look so easy, his control of the cue ball is superb so he's never out of position (contrast to Mags). Spoilt slightly by the commentators love-in, but still, a joy to watch Very Happy

No I wouldn't agree with that. Besides he put in polished displays in those matches and looked in fine form up until this match. Rankings suggest otherwise as well as he is the highest ranked player left in the tournament so clearly has been the form player of the season. For whatever reason he goes into his shell on the big occasion whereas his opponent Ali Carter may not be as highly rated but these occasions bring out the best in him and it has showed. Disappointing stuff from Maguire to be honest but credit to Ali for playing such solid matchplay snooker.

Billy I likewise don't want to cause you grief but I'm not entirely sure "Honest" John was proved innocent considering he received a fine and a ban.

Let's not ruin this fine thread with such stuff though. If anyone really wants to discuss it they can start a new one and take it from there.

The fine and ban was for bringing the sport into disrepute but NOT for match-fixing.

Agree 100%. Regardless of whether he did it or not, he was proven innocent therefore is innocent in the eyes of the law.

Poor taste to have a go at higgins, but to read an off the cuff joke and come up to your conculsion thats just ridiculas. Typical of you though. I dont hear you commenting on the amount of hate about ronnies past on here.

Jokes are fine, judging players on the past is something that i hate. You just pick and choose at will what you deem acceptable

Not entirely though mystiroakey as Higgins was not found guilty of his charges whereas it is common knowledge Ronnie did what he did. Some people can and will forgive him for these misdoings others won't and can't. Lets just leave it at that.

The way this semis is going it could be over tonight.
