    I kinda like this semifinal line-up.
    Not all the biggest names, but the semifinals at those type of tournaments rarely consist exclusively of them, but all good players.

      It would have been nice to do a feature on Mitchell Mann for reaching his first quarter-final, was a shame he got beat 5-0 by Yan Bingtao.

        Alan McManus is a great full time addition to Eurosport.

          perfectly respectable performance though , bingtao is very good at winning close frames.

            A sixth-frame-nailbiter between Allen and Walden. Allen wins it and extends his lead to 4-2. Could already be a little preliminary decision.

              Does anyone know if Mark Allan is still using the cue he got from an Italian maker?

                He switched it AFAIK.

                  Anyone else paying zero attention to the match? I’m getting slightly distracted

                    Playing Bingtao is like playing the computer game of snooker online on the highest level.....i.e. he doesn't do anything amazing but takes all chances left for him at a high level.

                    Not much more though? He kinda just sets the bar in his matches for what an opponent needs to exceed!

                    Thoughts?
                    No cheap shots...well maybe the odd one if its funny...

                      Oh, those middle pocket blues, sing it to me Yan, sing it baby!

                      Not many computer games would've missed that one. Tough ask for Yan now.

                          I think he has had a couple of cues since this one - but not totally sure.

                            Classy Higgins, when he plays like that he's a pleasure to watch. I'd love to see Mark Allen winning his home tourney (I always felt an empathy for the player, I always hope he wins something), but I'm afraid it's gonna be hard for him if John plays his A game throughout Sunday. It's a final between two phenomenal "cueball controllers", so looking forward to watching it.

                            p.s. If you listened to Ronnie in the immediate post-match, he set a perfect new nickname for Higgins: "The Gorvernor".

                              Anyone else think that Ronnie didn’t big Higgins up enough after the match ,almost cringe worthy ,sounds like Mark Allen is going to be be playing the second coming of Christ

                                Yeah, that was a bit odd to say the least... but that's Ronnie. He has some "special" moods and he likes to share them.
