    It was, but about as much use as a chocolate teapot unless you can do it in almost every frame like the others.

        Well played Anthony, nice pressure black for the match as well.

          Didn't see it as the w@nkers at the BBC don't seem to be bothering covering the tournament. It's funny, I'd swear I'd seen it mentioned in their schedules.

          Anyway, glad to hear AH got through.

                This ref's doing a very passable impression of Tony Soprano, breathing wise.
                And Ryan's through, great result after last night's disappointment.

                  Welsh Open is on the BBC red button channel from 1p.m tomorrow, then again for an hour at 7p.m, better than nothing I suppose

                    His mugshot on world snooker live scoring might be the only one thats changed and had the glare removed.
                    It looks less creepy and more hospitable,maybe he was ordered to change it I don't know.

                      I was being sarcastic, jonny. When I learned just prior to the tournament that BBC W were covering it and that it would also be on the Red Button Channel, I remarked that I shouldn't miss a single ball.

                      How wrong could I have been? We're not only missing balls, we're missing whole matches because of their woeful coverage. I couldn't believe it today when channels 971 (BBC W on the red button) and 980 (Red Button Channel) were both showing the SAME damn program - some 12 hour marathon on 80s music. I know the Red Button service and the Red Button Channel are essentially the same thing, but it can't have been beyond the realms of technology to show the snooker on one of them.

                        Just checked the schedule for the week, the snooker's only on for an hour every evening from 7 till 8, then it's that 80's love songs programme again. It's just an hour long programme on repeat, how on earth does that take precedence over live snooker?

                          Yes, but they're good 80's love songs

                            80's music on loop! Wow that's really worth a license fee.... : (

                              I had the Neil Robertson vs Jimmy White match on Eurosport last night.

                              I think 1980s music on loop would be preferable from listening to Colin Murray.

                                You'd have to suspect its to get people more conditioned to subscription payment viewing.

                                It's a bit like asking amateurs to go to an event in Gibraltar,different topic but a market prize p***take all the same.
