Uber Update: Snooker World Champs 2007

Anthony HamiltonWe've reached the Quarter-Final stage of the  Snooker World Championship  2007 -  wha'd'ya mean you haven't been following it? Can you honestly tell me you have better things to do then watch a load of pasty dudes pacing round an oversized pool table?

Ok, ok maybe you do but no fear, your buddy Sanchez will take you through all of the matchups in the final eight.

Anthony Hamilton (Eng) v Stephen Maguire (Sco) - Maguire is sometimes the best thing to set foot around a snooker table and sometimes the worst thing, so it's always hard to predict his games. He has taken a marginal 5-3 lead (first to 13) so far and the longer he allows Hamilton to stay in touch, the harder it will be to beat him.

John Higgins (Sco) v Ronnie O'Sullivan (Eng) - Ronnie 'The Rocket' O'Sullivan is back to his incredible self again and has pretty much wiped the floor with his last two opponents, both of who only won frames when Ronnie's concentration lapsed and he made mistakes. If he can maintain concentration then no one in the entire universe can stop him from winning this tournament.

Matthew Stevens (Wal) v Shaun Murphy (Eng) - Frankly, this match is being played by two guys who got threw the first two rounds by default. If that sounds a little bit harsh, then good, it was supposed to.

Mark Selby (Eng) v Ali Carter (Eng) - Mark Selby is my new best friend after knocking out Peter Ebdon, the slowest snooker player on Earth. Well known for boring opponents to death, Ebdon was one of the reasons I didn't watch the final last year. Hopefully, he can go on to beat Carter and keep this tournament interesting. Well, in an average kind of way at-least.
