Stephen Maguire v Yuan Sijun - Over 0.5 centuries

Snooker - UK Championship - 28 Nov 19:30

Yuan Sijun is a great prospect for the future and 5/1 about a century against Stephen Maguire I like the look of.

Sijun is 17 years old and gained a tour WC by winning the U21 Asian Championships.

This kid could be very good. He's under the radar and personally I rate him a better prospect than Bingtao. Keep an eye on him. Anyways back to the tip. 5/1 looks big.

Sijun has scored 5 centuries already this season. He hit 2 when beating Joe Perry 4-1 at the English Open closing with a break of 104.

He hit a 107 break when beating Shaun Murphy at the Shanghai Masters. This is a player not fazed by a more established opponent.

Maguire is known for his aggressive style of play and that could help this bet. The Scot doesn't know conservative snooker, and goes for a lot of risks with long potting. I can see him leaving Sijun in amongst the balls in this match, and the young Chinese has proved already that he's a more then capable break builder.

It's Sijuns first ever UK Championships and he's expected to lose so hopefully he plays with freedom. I do think he will get plenty of chances in this match let's hope he steps up to the occasion.

As I said 5/1 looks a bit big, he's hit 8 career centuries in his short career already and Maguires style of play should mean opportunities.
