    They must ship in morons for this. I don't mind a rowdy crowd, i've been to the darts a few times, and go to the Mosconi Cup, which is partisan and noisy, but this is just annoying.

      How embarrassing for Zhou Yuelong, whitewashed in two ranking finals in a row.

        Okay, that's my curiosity satisfied. Now I'll quickly turn off the TV before White starts speaking again.

          I’m afraid I find darts crowds equally as annoying. Probably more so for their lairiness.

            You're not pronouncing Tian Pengfei as Shan Pengfei, are you? So why the need to modify the "tian" in Haotian?
            yep, drives me mad with Tian Haotian's name specifically; I don't know where this came but whey, oh why, don't they ask the man himself!
            Up the TSF!

                This one commentator also says: "China Ropen" and "Thepchaiya Run-Nooh."

                But apart from this it was the best Snooker Shootout ever, wasn't it? Some really thrilling frames. Congratulations to Mr. Holt and family.

                        Unfortunately the silence will be, to a large extent, down to the fact there’ll probably be about half a dozen people in the crowd

                          Just been watching a bit of Selby-Williams - there were actually more than half a dozen present!

                            Yeah, better turn out than most of these lesser tournaments, but then it is a tiny venue.

                            Ever the pessimist.

                              Actually though half a dozen might well be right as regards Ding-Maguire on the neighbouring table ....
