Mark Williams may not be in the mood to hang around
Liang Wenbo cut to win group
Starts midday Tuesday
Group Five of the Championship League Group brings together a high-class septet at the Ricoh Arena with Judd Trump, Mark Williams and Shaun Murphy topping the bill.
Martin Gould, Barry Hawkins, Liang Wenbo and Ricky Walden are the other four involved. Liang has already been trimmed from 9-1 to 8-1 by Betfred to join his fellow Chinese Zhou Yuelong in the winners' group, while Murphy has been eased to 9-2 from 4-1.
Hawkins is earning good money and is about to contest his fourth group, while Trump and Murphy came up short in Group Four.
Liang could go well but so could Walden in his seasonal debut in the competition and Williams, who may wish to profit from his current hot form and not hang around in Coventry. The Welshman has been knocking in tons for fun and his heavy Masters loss to Kyren Wilson was a surprise.
