    Dominic stressing it's important Bingham gets a frame on the board quickly. Calm down Dom. Someone had to win the opening frame

    You mean if you wanted to pronounce it like a Polish person would? Then yes, you are correct. The Polish "w" is the equivalent of the English "v", while the letter "v" does not exist in the Polish alphabet. Also, the "s" would not turn into a "z" sound, and the syllable "sow" would rhyme with "low" rather than "cow".

    Edit: Actually, it wouldn't rhyme because w turns into v, but you get the point.
    Gets even trickier as I have heard that when many polish came over before/during the war they changed the spelling of their names to the sounds in English.
    My sister's first husband was a Robaczynski - which I was told they changed from original spelling.

    Anyway snooker final about to start

    He's a small bloke and really needs something tailor made for him, the balance must be way out with a lot of the cue's weight behind his grip hand.

    Why do these lower ranked players only seem to play well when I'm not watching, they were both crap yesterday and I predicted 6-0 to Robertson as every time I see Vafaei he's awful and couldn't hit a barn door with a banjo.

    Yup! It was easy enough to find, though. Some double, eh?

    Wow, that blue Bingo missed into the middle was so badly timed! Not used to seeing that from him.

    Oh, no worries, Joe is being nice to him. I'm sure JH will be spitting Napalm if watching!!

    Hope fully he can build from this. It would be good to have another younger British player up there at the top.

    Thanks Bob, all makes perfect sense now. He is a very exacting type of player.
