World Snooker Championship | Kyren Wilson wipes the floor with Spaceman Dale – surrendering just one frame


Wilson did not have a very good season and was usually eliminated early in tournaments, but that does not alter the fact that he can play fantastic snooker. You often have the feeling that more is – or was – possible for ‘The Warrior’, who has already played several quarter-finals and semi-finals at the World Cup.

The good news for Wilson is that the schedule is completely open in the top half and on top of that he is almost assured of a spot in the second round. The score after the first session at Wilson – Dale is no less than 8-1.

Dale has to watch passively

For the ‘Spaceman’ it already felt like a victory to return to The Crucible after ten years, but this Wilson didn’t let anything or anyone stop him. He recorded no fewer than seven 50+ breaks. Therefore it was no coincidence that Dale needed a century of 120 to stop Wilson.

It is that a first round match is always divided over two sessions, because Wilson came very close to an early finish. He still needs to win two more frames in the second session. If that works, a clash with Joe O’Conner will follow, who sent Mark Selby home.

Tough route for Wilson

Wilson, together with John Higgins and Mark Allen, are the three most highly rated players left in the top half, but it is already certain that of these three, only one at most will reach the quarter-finals.

In short, Wilson must maintain this high level to make a serious run.
