Jamie Jones - Jones can not lose the second time to his opponent
Jamie Jones, originally from Neath, Wales, is a professional snooker player. Before Judd Trump, at age 14, he was the youngest player to make a perfect 147 break in a tournament. Jones advanced to his first-ever quarter-final in the 2012 World Snooker Championship. At the 2016 UK Championship, he reached the quarterfinals for the second time in his career at a Triple Crown event. Jamie Jones, as a professional, was the 2016 Pink Ribon champion. He has won five trophies at the amateur level. Jamie Jones is currently ranked #29 in the Snooker World Ranking, a position he has held for a significant portion of his career. His most recent opponents, Andy Lee and Mark Williams, both handily defeated him. We don't think Jones' previous defeats will affect his chances of victory against a formidable opponent in this match.
Elliot Slessor - will Elliot enjoy another repeat of 2017 match?
British snooker pro Elliot Slessor was one of the top four players at the inaugural Q School tournament, who earned a spot on the professional Main Tour for the next 2013–14 and 2014–15 seasons. The 28-year-old professional is now ranked No. 60 in the world of snooker. Slessor is two wins in his past five matches, with his two victories coming against Zhang Jiankang of China and Sean O'Sullivan of England. If the Northern Ireland player wants to advance to the round of 32, he will need to play at a high level in his first match. Despite losing three matches, Slessor has won his last two contests, which is a good sign that he will be in this tournament. Therefore, we anticipate a tough fight.
