final 16. Higgins taking the first frame.
ok so its not the world champ but it'll do
There's been some craking matches so far, Murphys last match was a final frame decider against (haigh?) some bloke from Stoke. Also enjoyed watching Selby getting taken out in second round by Scott Donaldson
Was going to start a thread but didn't think it'd get any interest
I have started threads for the Masters and the Worlds in the past, but likewise I wasn't sure if people were up for the UKs.
I really enjoyed watching Yan Bingtao for the first time yesterday. He's certainly a rough diamond, but didn't jump the gun with attacking play.
I love the Nugget and everything, but I really wish Steve Davis would refer to the Chinese players properly, as Yan, Ding, Liang, etc. Calling him "Bingtao" just sounds naive.
ETA: I've got tickets for a session at the Masters in January. Get the fuck in!
enjoyed King v Higgins, I didn't even know there was more snooker on this side of 2018 so its nice to get some cueing goodness before christmas
Champion of Champions was on ITV a few months ago too
This Akani bloke is seriously good. However you feel about hairclips.
please always start threads as i never know snooker is on (no TV)
what channel is this on?
He tends to call British players by their personal names doesn't he?
BBC2 afternoons, so probs iplayer catchups also
Ronnie vs Maguire
Hendry's commentating has a noticeable amount of table-psychology insights. I want to call bullshit on his game theorising but, who is going to call bullshit on hendry
Cheers for the heads up DC. Afternoon sorted
Aye, i'm doing fuck all but sit on the sofa, eating, drinking and watching this match today
maguire had more than enough chances there, ok some bad luck but really. Ronnie wasn't exactly on it.
classic hendry on o'sullivan:
'he never hits a wrong shot'
as the opening white goes in the pocket
That was quite an interesting first session.
Lots of snooker on Eurosport all year round.
We watch it through Sky when it isn't on the BBC or ITV but you can watch online for a fee if you're interested ska invita www.eurosport.co.uk/snooker £30 a year for Eurosport Player
maguires had his weetabix
5 - 3 !
thanks will have look at that! got my laptop nicked so cant currently stream iplayer or even open that link on current device, but appreciate the thought
you cant beat a bit of bbc commentary and presentation though
He does, generally. Is it so simple that Junhui is Ding's "first name" equivalent? Your username suggests you may know more than I do about Chinese name protocol.
Murphy looked incredible from distance last night. Everything just flew into the centre of the pocket, but still he keeps breaking down and fails to make the big breaks. I expect him to win tonight though.
Maguire was a bit blown away by O'Sullivan before the interval, but full credit to him for coming out afterwards. O'Sullivan only showed traces of his top game, and may well be benefiting from the other top players being knocked out early.
Really rooting for Ryan this evening, would be a beast of a day if he won tonight.
Ebdon commentating, ffs
As much as i dislke him i have to say, Shaun Murphy looks fucking dangerous and he gives good snooker.
he's got better form than ronnie was showing earlier. Team Day though, given he needs the win more as a lower ranker
works on tablets and smartphones too I understand - sorrry to hear about your laotop
I know - fuck sake he's dull
Yeh, Ronnie needs to sort his form out if hes going to beat a determined Murphy.
Whilst trying to sound all dramatic too! What a cunt.
sean murphy is a ruthless machine atm
