    So, the World Indoors kicks off at Potters on Thursday, just days after it was worryingly announced that the International Open in March will be postponed until later in the year due to lack of finances/sponsors pulling out.


    Should be a cracking two and a bit weeks in Norfolk, but who do you think will win?
    Here are the odds...


    Best prices:
    13-2 Foster
    8-1 Brett
    8-1 Marshall
    8-1 Harlow
    12-1 Anderson
    12-1 Gourlay
    14-1 Paxton
    16-1 King
    16-1 Dawes
    16-1 Chestney
    16-1 Burnett
    25-1 Thomson
    25-1 Gillett
    25-1 Stepney
    25-1 Greenslade
    28-1 Royal
    28-1 Willgress
    40-1 Edwards
    40-1 Skelton
    40-1 Walker
    50-1 Smith
    50-1 McKee
    66-1 Rippey
    66-1 Doubler
    66-1 Barker
    66-1 Rimmington
    80-1 Martin
    80-1 McIntosh
    80-1 Coleman
    100-1 Jones
    100-1 Egan

    13/2 the field shows how open it is and with the Open Singles Circuit more of the players who are not automatically in the top 16 are getting a chance to play the W C format and are more dangerous than they would have 6 or 7 years ago.
    If I had a bet I would split it between Paxton and Stepney with a small outside bet on Edwards but there are 20 players at least who on their day are good enough to win it.
    Giving Federation another go,
    Different County mind. another clash looms

    Anderson looked ominously good (again) versus Walker, who was desperately unlucky to have to turn out again a few hours after losing in the Pairs semi. Two blows to the guts in one day.

    I'd definitely advise saving your money by not betting on Robert Paxton. It is fairly obvious that he has a major issue with the 'yips' at the moment. I think that it is affecting him in a very big way. Les Gillett is certainly looking good - as is Nick Brett.

    Indeed, it was uncomfortable at times watching Paxton in the Pairs. It was suggested he had changed his style, but it definitely looked like he had a bad case of the yips, and on virtually every delivery too.
