    I’m enjoying it. Not bothered about the crowd. Not bothered about the commentators either tbh. Happy to watch the players. Couldn’t have waited till next April.

      Yeah, he's trying to hard to commentate, it's not a natural conversation with Parrot.


      Or Dominic Dale, his voice drives me up the wall.

      • The standard has been aweful so far in the tournament. That's what you get when you have the biggest tournament of the year with all players, not just short of match practice, but with no match practice

          But I bet you said that back in April of this year when you knew it had been put back to August.

            • Ding has had some bad luck, King fluking the pink in the last frame and screwing into the middle pocket in the last

                    Can't wait for this pandemic to end so we all can start playing again.

                    • I'm sure Mark King is a nice bloke but he's a very difficult snooker player to watch, out of position every three shots, messes up the colours with his safety, glad he's out. Is it true what Steve Davis said that they're spraying the cue ball with some sort of antiseptic because the players have to handle it.
                      It's bound to cause more kicks, why not tell all players they have to use a cue glove on their bridge hand and only handle the cue ball with that, plus hand sanitiser and new glove every time they leave and re-enter the arena, they can even shake hands.
                      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

                      • Is that Hugh Dennis in the commentary box? It would be nice to be able to mute commentary but keep the sound of the match.

                          Hopefully Ronnie & Robertson will liven things up a little more!!

                            Sounds like Rob Walker. They really are short-staffed this week.

                            • Would McManus be commentating? Would be great to have him in the commentary box.
