    Would be nice indeed. The draw down there is pretty wide open.

      Bit of a dull one for Scott Donaldson. Lost 5-4 in qualifying round. All that way and no dosh! Possibly Scott was still feeling unwell. He puked up during his match with Dott in the Championship League.

        I see a few 5 nils and for some reason the Mark Davs v Matt Selt match is only showing the scores from 3 frames .

        I wonder if a few players are ill .
        Still trying to pot as many balls as i can !

          I think WS still punt ?2k to players for "expenses" of Held-over matches?
          ROS in same boat - poor little chicken


          Neil, I was thinking the same, hope not though.

            Have the order of merit points for the World open been removed before the 2019 English Open took place, because the 2017 World open took place between the 18-24 September 2 years ago and Ding was the champion so he will have 175,000 pounds to defend.

                Liam Highfield has withdrawn from the Zhiyuan World Open in Yushan due to ill health.

                  Yeah, I think the World Open points were already dropped before. They were already out for the ranking on 30th September.
                  For the update of the rankings after this tournament the following points will be removed from the 2017/18 season: European Masters, English Open, International Championship, Shanghai Masters

                    Hopefully Ding will finally have a good run again. He really needs the points to keep up his ranking. Though on the other hand it maybe wouldn't be the worst thing. His best crucible result still came in a year he had to qualify for the World Championship.

                      What a good comeback by David Gilbert against Zhao Xintong . 4 - 1 down , so no hangover after his mauling in the English Open Final .

                        So ROS lost in R1 today and his next two ranking tournaments are the NI Open where he was runner up last year and the UK which we won. 200k ranking points coming off. We'll see how much he really cares about ranking points when he decides whether to play the Scottish + German Masters, which he avoided last season.

                        Happy for Dale to finally win lol. Just noticed Williams didn't quality....that's a shame.

                            Even Ronnie had to Smile at Dom when shaking hands

                            I thought the Spaceman played very fluently and looked like he was having fun.

                            I wonder which one of his collection of cues he is currently using, looked like an old cue .Anyone know?
                            No cheap shots...well maybe the odd one if its funny...

                              Think even Ronnie has a soft spot for Dominic , he says he likes chatting to him … about … ahem …. cues
