    Seen a black from Williams about 30 minutes ago off it’s spot that moved an inch off line! Only just went in.

      Really didn't expect Gilbert to go the final.

      Also what happened with Saengkham in the other semi? Did he falter after being 5-2 up or was Williams just too good?

      I don't think Gilbert will beat the World Champion tomorrow. Not over Best-of-19.

        Williams got it back to 5-5 with some pretty quick scoring, so Saengkham didn't really get all that many chances. He had a few in the decider though, but couldn't put anything together.

          Mark Williams is like a fine wine..........getting better with age .

          So casual round the table , nothing appears to phase him and he has so much belief in his ability .
          Still trying to pot as many balls as i can !

            Have the officials missed or goofed up the table inspection?
            Can't wait for this pandemic to end so we all can start playing again.

              I would think that they changed the cloth for the semis and final so that could be the culprit

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

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

                    • 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.

                            • shame for David, I am sure he will remember that blue in frame 18.
                              hope this is his year

                              well done Mark 'limpet'Williams

                              very enjoyable final and tournament

                              three sets of qualifiers next, hopefully Eurosport Player will have these
