    What a complete waste of time.
    Seriously, snooker is it own worst enemy, that was embarrassingly crappy.

    This presentation ceremony is so tedious that it's bizarrely compelling. They appear to have forgotten the players

    It maybe "big money" in China now, because they get a little from many!

    Good match. Gilbert played very well until the last five frames, punishing most of Williams' mistakes and winning frames in one or two visits, but the last couple of hours were like a nightmare for him. We've seen stuff like that many times in the past, so it's not really a huge surprise that a champion like Williams was able to hang in there and come good in the end. Good to see him continuing where he left off last season.

    I enjoyed what I saw of this tournament, although unfortunately I wasn't really able to watch much of the early rounds. Hopefully I will have more time once Shanghai comes around.

    So, 8 - 5 to Gilbert at the interval, I never expected that scoreline, he's looking pretty cool out there and putting Mark under real pressure with some great long potting/break building. Excellent stuff so far.

    Gilbert off to good start. 3-1 up. Long way to go.

    That could be one reason but even then they are supposed to check the table right?
