    Taom are giving chalk and tips to amateur players for free. So any pro could get some for free easily, but free is never really free in that world. If you get what I mean.
    Taom are a sponsor at the German Masters this year. I bet there is free chalk and tips flying around the Tempodrom.

        Yep, for the likes of ROS etc, endorsements are expected. Ron done them up like a kipper, by saying no thanks to your free chalk Triangle is still the guvnor because I believe the endorsement offering wasn't attractive to him? Something along those lines...
        No cheap shots...well maybe the odd one if its funny...

              Do you think the top players didn't want to win this ?

              There is no way if there were trying their hardest, that Judd, Ding, Robbo and Williams would have all lost

              I think they want to go back to England now and get ready for the next few local ranking tournaments

Maybe all the criticism of his style of play has got to him, he does seem somewhat less inclined to run for cover these days. There were quite a few shots from him today which I thought were just not worth the risk/reward, shots I doubt he'd have considered a year or two ago.

                You're not alone on this. I've noticed this as well. He goes for shots he shouldn't go for IMO. Maybe that is also because his safety game is far down from the level he possessed from 2014-2017 ca. When you remember these days, there was hardly a shot, his opponents could play without pressure.

                    Not really perhaps, because it means that there'll be an outsider in the final, which always adds a bit of spice to a tournament ....

                      Why aren’t Quest showing this? Arguably the best of the Euros and this is the one they decide not to run.

                          Is it just me, or has anyone else found the audio on this German Masters makes every contact sound "lead" heavy!!! ??

                            I find this happens a bit with the Eurosport broadcast tournaments. Everything sounds like a kick. Figure that maybe the mic placement is closer. That, and the venues in these multitable setups are pressumably quite cavernous for acoustics

                              Thanks Mark, hopefully I don't need a new tele then!
