Is there any reason for thinking that Jones may win this game, or is that just taking a punt on the game being decisive? I am assuming a draw is the obvious result here. Whether it is a quick one or not isn't so clear. Hopefully not. You would also think that McShane is nicely placed to play the top two in the later rounds. Does he have good chances against them, does anyone think? Maybe the top three will all draw amongst themselves, maybe not. If they do, that favours Howell, of course, but maybe someone else can steam up alongside them while they slow themselves down.
