International Championship in Daqing match betting preview, free tip, TV details
Stephen Maguire should add to excellent head-to-head record against Joe Perry
Eurosport 2, 7.30am & 12.30pm Tuesday
The International Championship is already looking like a high-quality tournament and that's an encouraging sign so early in the campaign.
The final of this event is often contested by players at or near the top of the tree and the way the field have started in Daqing, we could well be in line for another top-notch title match.
That's still a long way off, however, and on day three of the tournament it could pay to back Stephen Maguire, half of the Scotland duo who lifted the World Cup in China in June, to continue his good start to the season with a victory over Joe Perry.
Maguire is seldom the most reliable of performers, but if he produces the quality he is capable of he is probably good enough to dispose of the Gentleman. The Scot has won 18 of their 23 meetings.
