Ulster Pub Players Open 8Ball Pool Championship
Date: May 16, 2007 06:23AM
There has been a great response to the first official 8ball ranking tournament this weekend in Omagh when the 2007 Ulster 8Ball Pool Championship takes centre stage promoted by Ireland's Pub Players 8Ball Pool Tour with over 50 entries to date before the closing date tomorrow.......

There will be official outright betting for the event with some great prices for players on Ireland's American 8 & 9 Ball Pool Tour...

Great odds offered for Ireland's number one ranked 9ball player Paddy Mc Laughlin at 10/1 (its not often you see these odds for Paddy)should be snapped up...

This is just some of the betting with other players on request.....

Stephen Dempsey 4/5
Connor Mc Cann 5/2
Alan Mc Bennett 5/2
John Mc Mahon 3/1
Brendan Mc Donagh 3/1
Gavin Geraghy 4/1
Billy Moore 6/1
Lee Hull 6/1
David Mc Quillan 7/1
Damien Corrigan 8/1
Paul Heaney 8/1
Ronan Fay 10/1
Paddy Mc Laughlin 10/1
Brian Curtis 12/1
Ronnie Boyle 14/1
Others on request!!!!!!!


NOTE:
The draw will take place between 9.15am and 9.30am at the venue. These prices are likely to change when the draw is made Saturday morning so if anyone wants a bet on at these odds they would need to do it before Saturday morning....

This is my analysis:

Dempsey - Certianly the favourite as he's world class but ridiculous price at 4/5 over first to 5. Too many good players could beat him over short distance.

McBennett/McCann - Again reckon the prices are too short for these. McBennett is playing well at the moment while I'm not sure if McCann is playing that much.

McDonogh/McMahon - Too Old!!!

Geraghty - Never seems to win any competitions.

I think McQuillan at 7/1 is good value. He's playing well at the moment and can give anybody a good game especially over such a short distance.


No doubt though with these prices RB will be the real winner. 4/5 is a mad price on Dempsey!!!

I'll tell you what to do, if you think Stephen Dempsey should be better odds let me no what price you think he should be and i might have a wee bet with you, a player who won a European title with over 100 players including world class professionals coming into a field of local and Irish players shouldn't be 4/5......come on your winding me up!!!!!.........

sorry correct me if im wrong (hear say as they say) did Spephen beat afew world champions along the way when winning the European championship including Gareth Potts and twice world champion winner Jason Twist (as i say i might be wrong correct me if i am)

tojm, i got a phone call to say that Stephen Dempsey did beat former world champion Gareth Potts and also another professional player which i didn't mention Craig Reynolds in the last-16....

He didn't beat Jason Twist but he beat the player who put Jason out Neil Davey from England and Stephen beat him in the final on a 8-6 score-line......

So i think in a tournament like this 4/5 is a great price.......come on get your money on before he comes into 4/6....
