    It's already started, although the BBC coverage only starts tomorrow. Liang and McGill are out, but the big shocker is Selby going out 6-3 to an amateur.

    1pm tomorrow, with the evening session from 7pm.

    marty21 One on one? You're crazy.

    How does the amateur stuff work in Snooker? Is this guy playing for free ? No prize money ?

    I'm pretty sure it just means that they're not touring professionals. Amateur snooker players still get prize money.

    Going tomorrow! Staying with a mate in Leeds tonight before a trip to rail museum in the morning and snooker in the afternoon. Did message mrs quoad to see if he fancied a wander round the trains but got a feeling he isn't on urb at the mo?

    I've only ever been to the Masters, which is a single table set-up. Even the WCs have screens between the tables in the early rounds. If you're sat between two it must be very difficult to maintain focus on just one. I spotted both Williams and Maguire glancing at the game adjacent to theirs this afternoon.

    In effect you can watch/follow all 4 though. The maguire match was more enjoyable than higgins. I hope mcmanus wins though as i can't stand the wanker from Widshaw
