    Donaldson has not beaten Allen in four attempts, will this be his time? He certainly is in good form of late but then so is Allen, ?
    Up the TSF!

    Brilliant win for Selby. Maybe a bit of a worrying time for ROS now? No Masters means it's a while before he plays again. The no-handshake thing is just stupid and a bit disrespectful.

    Selby is a gradually getting back to some serious form. I wonder if he can hold out Trump in a long match though.

      So, the Scots have produced their fair share of players, but fans of the game... not so much

      I keep thinking we're watching one of the Chinese tournaments.

        I actually felt a little sorry for Ron in this match, he gave it his all was bossing the safety to go 4-3 up, then that "miss" that wasn't really a miss as it was clear he feathered the red, gave Mark the frame winning opportunity ( which all credit to Mark he too superbly btw)

        surely these recent cent events should call for the VAR to kick in and be formally adopted in snooker?
        No cheap shots...well maybe the odd one if its funny...

          I hope Dave Gilbert can win and make some money so that he can get his teeth sorted out! Looks like Austin Powers on a bad day after a "nutty" coffee.

            Didn't we have a retrospective foul as the result of a call by the marker recently? If it can be done, which it clearly can, it should be done, typical half-arsed approach from WS.

            As for Ronnie's germ phobia, you don't generally see people who are genuinely germophobic constantly stuffing their hands and nails in their mouth, as we always do ROS. Loved Selby's paper, scissors, stone response, brilliant.

            The slow and labourious,
            All of us, glorious parts of the whole!

                These shot challenges with Jimmy and Andy are priceless!

                They set up a slow-roll pot played by Ronnie in a recent match and Jimmy sinks the red first time, replicating the shot almost perfectly.

                Andy: "Right, play it again..."
                Jimmy: "What d'you mean play it again!? What you want me to miss it now?"

                I laughed so hard at Jimmy's reaction

                  It must be the first time in years that he got a shot first time, no wonder he didn't want to try it again.

                    I'll ignore that remark.

                    Seeing as it's true.

                      Looks like we might get a good weekend. Selby played quite well today, Gilbert was brilliant, and the two winners I didn't see must have played very well too, judging by the breaks they made, particularly Lisowski.

                          They couldn't have met in a long match anyway, because they were in the same half of the draw.

                            If the ref wasn't standing twenty feet away he would have seen it and that's the crux of the problem with modern referees always standing behind the player.

                            Speak up, you've got to speak up against the madness, you've got speak your mind if you dare
                            but don't try to get yourself elected, for if you do you'll have to cut your hair

                              LOL instead of Judd v Ronnie, we get Selby v Gilbert (they did earn it). Selby v Gilbert is for hardcore snooker fans only, like die hard fans, like really die hard fans, like people on this forum die hards fans, like really really really diehard fans

                              Ronnie v Judd would have had a chance of drawing casual sports fans away from football/MMA/Boxing/Basketball/tennis etc

                              Selby v Gilbert, not so much
