  • Champion of Champions

    Anyone seen the schedule for this? Sandwiched between 2 tournaments in China, surely travelling all the way out there, then back to the UK, then straight back out is going to affect the performance of the players. Idiotic scheduling that does no-one any favours.

    Anyone know which players are set to play in all 3? I'm too lazy to look myself

    Group 1 - 6/11/17
    Ding Junhui v Anthony Hamilton
    Barry Hawkins v Ryan Day

    Group 2 - 7/11/17
    Marco Fu v Michael White
    Shaun Murphy v Mark King

    Group 3 - 8/11/17
    Mark Selby v Liang Wenbo
    Judd Trump v Luca Brecel

    Group 4 - 9/11/17
    Ronnie O'Sullivan v Neil Robertson
    John Higgins v Anthony McGill

    I can never understand why they go with this "Group" and "Group Final" idea. Groups to me suggest a round robin format. These are just last 16 and last 8 (quarter final) matches.

      I can't understand this either. Just pointless.

            Ryan Day was very animated around the table ,forever picking things off the table as well . Never seen him like that before . Another great win for my favourite player , and love his interviews . So refreshing . Off to buy himself a new car with the winnings to replace his old jolopy
            Neil

              Yep, I think I enjoyed the interview more than the match.

                Ryan Day and Anthony Hamilton's match was awful, other than the 133 by Hamilton it was like watching 2 amateurs playing .so many misses and miss controlled cue balls.

                i switched off after it went 3-3. no wonder these 2 have only won 2 ranking tournaments between them. playing like that if they came up against O'sulivan, Higgins , trump or Selby they would have lost 6-1 or 6-0.

                i see Hamilton got through this morning. he will have to up his game to get any further in this tournament

                  Hahaha,, your being kind saying they looked like amateurs. I think thats the lowest standard I have ever seen 2 pros play. Made me laugh when they were picking out the highlights after, jeeps . Glad Hami has got some more coin though.

                    Anything to do with the fact that Hamilton said that the black cushion was playing a little dead

                      No way, Neil. Ryan and Anthony just had a crap day at the office..

                        I enjoy watching them struggle sometimes, it's better than watching the machines dish every visit in my opinion! Adds to the drama.
                        Must say Day's final shot of the match on the blue was one of the worst i've ever seen in professional snooker.

                            They kept on about Ryan's stick. I take it he has a new cue..?...
