Looks like Selby has gone

Shame for the lad, he doesn't deserve to lose, but higgins found the extra gear when he needed it.

Selby needs to win the last 5 frames

Same here, about 12.30am it was. I saw Higgins go 17-13 up and decided that was enough for me.

He was awesome in the last couple of frames, he must have really psyched himself out after the third last frame he won, because his last two frames were like exhibition stuff.

Watched a couple of games this year but Dennis Taylor got on my nerves so much I had to turn over

Good luck with the bet..he's 50/1 for a reason surely?

Yes because he is 3-5 down in his 1st round match. It's upto 10 frames though, so still plenty of time to come back!

p.s. leave Dennis alone, the 1985 final was one of my great childhood memories!!!

Ebdon v Bond should finish some time in the next week or two.

If I'd paid and ended up watching that snorefest I would have wanted my money back. That McLeod is snail like as well. In fact for some reason I have found it all very dull so far, usually I love it.

I did actually stand outside the Crucible on Saturday and see McLeod start his match, so watched a little bit of history with the first black player to appear at The Crucible Theatre

You could see him playing from your pitch outside the Crucible?

Used to love it but can't get into it these days.

They have a big screen TV outside. I never had tickets I was in Sheffield to catch up with some mates, we had some girls with us I think that was their idea of hell. In fact most of my mates would probably have agreed. It is a dying sport sadly.

The Ding/Liang game is surely the first World Snooker Championship match where the participants' names are an anagram of a Chuck Berry song.

I see Bond v Ebdon finished!

Quote:
In the game between Ebdon and Bond, a tentative start from both players meant just one point was scored in the first 15 minutes of the first frame, which Bond eventually won after a gruelling hour and forty eight minutes.

Me too. And when I'm watching. I remember watching Thorburn v Griffiths once and it was like a comedy or something. Play the slowest, most negative shot imaginable every time.

Dunno how they do it, you'd wanna just hit and hope as hard as you can after a while

You wanna see Lee playing, his trousers are so big they look like flares

I wonder if Lee can still play after 22 pints of lager though like good ol' Bill.

One of my mates is good friends with Stephen Lee he's also a professional snooker player he was in the top 32 but has recently dropped to the 50's, I think he only made about £18k last season and he reckons most of them make more money from the exhibition games than they do for tournaments.

No wonder they are tempted to take the odd bribe, the expenses they run up travelling to these tournaments must eat most of that 18k up.

They get subsidised by sponsors but unless you're top 32 that doesn't mean a lot

O'Sullivan on a -3.5 frames handicap, against Mark Allen. 4/6 - thinking of lumping on.

Also thinking about O'Sullivan to win 3 out of the first 4 frames - evens.

To win 1st session - 4/7

Highest break in match - 2/5

-2.5 frame handicap - 2/5

Break over 50 in first frame - 1/3

To make 1st century in match - 4/9

Under 22.5 total frames - 1/2

He should've won a lot more than he has he hit a 147 in the qualifiers for the 2006 world championships I think he was the first ever to do it, he's very tempremental but a nice bloke though.

Allen's a decent player and I wouldn't lump on ROS. Most of those look nailed on but Ronnie is so temperamental, and can sometimes take a while to warm to the task...especially in the longer games.

All taken on board, but i dont fancy Allen to win 10 frames mate.

4/6 on O'Sullivan -3.5 looks good, dont you think?
