      I don't think he has a say in the matter, it depends if Ronnie feels up for it.
      This is how you play darts ,MVG two nines in the same match!

        Yes it will be interesting to see what happens during this match, really enjoyed the last time they played, although I don't think Walden will have done! Just love watching Ronnie when he's playing at his full potential.

            6-2 6-3 I reckon. I like ricky one of my favourite players but unless ricky takes full advantage of the chances he gets, he won't do too well against Ronnie considering the way he's playing atm.

              I'm quite looking forward to Bingham vs Fu. I appreciate that it isn't the glamour tie of the round. (It's not even the glamour tie of the first day, lol.) But, I quite like both players. They both seem like guys you like at it, and think; "Fair enough, they're alright guys." Both have won more than one ranking events, so are obviously capable.

              It's not a match that'll bring a lot of attention to itself, especially being on a Sunday night. But I think it could be enjoyable. I'd suggest that perhaps Bingham was showing more consistent form at this point in his career, but two very capable players who could both beat the other one. Hard to predict who'll win, and hard to dislike both players.

                I'm going to The Masters on Monday 12 January 2015 with a few lads from our snooker league, managed to snap up some All Day Tickets when they were half price in the summer and pretty pleased with the matches that we will be seeing;
                Judd Trump v Stephen Maguire (at 1pm)
                Neil Robertson v Robert Milkins (at 7pm)

                I like the way both Judd and Neil play the game. Was never a Judd fan until recently when he seems to be taking a bit more time over his shots and not hitting the cue ball quite so hard...still occasionally has his 'lampshade larry' moments then don't we all!

                  I'd agree with this, I'm looking forward to watching these two also, I like both players, Marco is particularly likeable just because of his calm manner and once he's playing some good snooker he's really enjoyable to view.
                  I think if Stuart continues to show that form he played at the end of 2014 he will be pretty hard to beat, it's a close call who will win this one as both players can be great, just depends what kind of form they're in on the day. Looking forward to it!

                    I'm up watching Selby vs Murphy in the afternoon. Hoping to make it home in time to watch the evening entertainment.

                      Are you a Selby or Murphy fan? That should be a good match, hope you can manage to get home to see the evening match as well, do you live far from Ally Pally?

                        Murphy can play some very good snooker as he
                        has shown recently but can he play well at a
                        major tournament like he has at the smaller ones.
                        Fu is due to have a good tournament and this
                        could be the one. Bingham is no easy opponent
                        tho so it will be a good match.

                          i see it as a Selby or O'Sullivan to win it this year.

                          the Masters is usually a specialist Tournament and not many who are playing this year have won it.

                          O'Sullivan has met Selby in 3 finals over the last 6 years.

                          Selby has won it 3 times and been runner up twice while O'sullivan has won it 5 times and been runner up 5 times too. of the other players Ding and Robertson have 1 win and 1 runner each.

                          over the last 10 years one of these 4 players have won it only John Higgins has split them when he won it in 2006 beating Ronnie.

                          So unless there is a shock outcome i can only see one of the four mentioned as the winner, with Ronnie and Selby the more likely of the quartet .

                            Judd must be in with a shout as well, he's playing very well with a level of consistency he hasn't really shown before. Even when he loses he looks like he's cueing really well, game looks easy for him at the moment.

                            Hoping for a Ronnie win. 2nd choice... probably Ding.

                              I would have thought Judd would have had a chance too, he has been playing well in recent games and the way he caught up with Ronnie last month was fantastic.

                              I'm hoping for a Ronnie win as well, I'll always be behind him all the way. Would be disappointed by a Selby win simply because he has started to become too slow for me, I like a bit more excitement from the game rather than constant safety shots. If not Ronnie then I'd probably pick Robertson as I quite enjoy watching him when he's in fine form.
