    I'm beginning to wonder what people want from this game... it certainly seems it isn't snooker in its truest form

    It seems those of us who truly love the sport and all its varying types of play (scrappy, tactical, grinders) are few and far between these days.

      This one is for the mods, and forgive me if it's a stupid question, but why is discussion for this tournament in the Lounge rather than the Pro Tournament forum?
      Because this is Ronnies exibition not a pro comp.

      • The Kyren vs Barry game really an excellent one! Ronnie was out of this world in the afternoon but I really enjoyed the evening game. Plenty of scoring, good tactics, drama....the best of snooker

            If Ronnie plays like that what can anyone possibly do to make it a match...nothing that's what.

                  Doesn't Hazel do Ski Sunday?

                  I remember in the 80s when David Icke always used to be lead presenter of the Masters (with a bit of Tony Gubba for back up) because David Vine was off skiing and presenting Ski Sunday

                    Not always - he came within a whisker of beating him not so long ago (last season or last season but one)!

                      Can't be that bad - Mark Allen can certainly afford extravagant waistcoats! There again though, they may be the same ones he's been wearing the last few years, so he might be feeling the pinch ....

                      Glad to see he's got through to the next round, for some reason I can't stop laughing whenever I see his attire, so that'll be something to look forward to .... That tartan one he used to sport a while back was a real hoot!

                      • Such gutsy potting by Carter. He is a pleasure to watch. Certainly THE elegant of the two. Murphy looks to be giving away far too many chances to force this match to a nail biter.
                        Can't wait for this pandemic to end so we all can start playing again.

                            • 2 - 2 at the interval and bubbling up nicely. I didn't quite catch the introductions, but did I hear them call Anthony "The laughing assassin"? surely not.

                              By this stage in the competition just 4 years ago, we had around 450 posts on the thread. Don't know what it means, if anything at all, but I find it a bit sad.
