The Benson and Hedges Masters
It is not easy to predict which two players will be at the table tonight at the Wembley Conference Centre. If TONY KNOWLES has managed to beat SILVINO FRANCISCO in the first round, he will be up against either NEAL FOULDS, ranked No 13, the youngest of the top 16 players and very much on form, or the lovable Irishman DENNIS TAYLOR, the world No 3 who has not had much success since his brilliant 84/85 season. DAVID ICKE introduces this match in the Masters, which is over the best of nine frames.
