    Ah! I see what you mean. Yes, audience feedback from a commentator's remark can be an issue.

    On another matter, I wonder if the commentators / pundits will ever get it right when they predict the tournament centuries record is going to get 'blitzed'? They say it at nearly every tournament and it never is, just like it won't be at this one.

    I know that but when Ken was talking about those people in the audience it could have easily been another 'crack a joke' moment that would cause a titter in the audience while a break is in progress. I don't think it matters if the frame is safe it feels a bit unsnookery.

    I feel embarrassed for the person they're addressing, but that a different thing.

    Well, I like both players, so I donĀ“t want to jinx any of them. Besides that John Higgins is a player that I never rule out.

    Why does Ken think it's ok to start talking about other 'celebs' in the crowd when a player is at the table compiling a break and then actually talking to them through commentry "nice to have you here lads". Arrrrgh. The crowd are there to watch people play snooker not learn about other people in the crowd. Maybe between frames or an interval but I can't believe how they think it's ok to make inane chatter when a player is at the table.

    Don't even know what I'd count as class.

    As much as I'm not a Murphy fan, I think I'd count him as class. Judd more flairy than classy

    I don't know if Allen makes a fuss about nothing sometimes but fair enough if he wasn't happy but John Virgo twice called a swan neck a spider. Not like him to be careless like that. Maybe it's known as a swan neck spider like the extended spider.

    I think I would disagree on both counts.

    Just watching the consistency with which players drop a long red in after the break, I wonder why more players aren't experimenting with the break-off. I don't for one second suggest rolling into the pack, but why not thin and off two cushions back to bailk?

    LOL. Still think it was Judd who lost the match from a winning position than Wilson stepping up. But the last break was great.

    That is unsettling, but I'm actually more impressed at how well it's been done!
