        Ah, these look fun. Let's see...

        1 - He gave his cue away to a member of the audience.
        2 - Graeme Dott. Great match, as was the other SF between Ebdon and Higgins. Too bad the final didn't live up to the expectation.
        3 - Shaun Murphy.
        4 - This one I don't know. Mark Williams perhaps?
        5 - Robert Milkins. I remember staring at the live scoring as it was happening. It's a good job they at least showed us the footage later.
        6 - Haven't heard that one before. Someone like Ian McCulloch perhaps? I know Dott didn't much care for his attitude when they played in 2007.
        7 - Shaun Murphy.
        8 - Jamie Cope. We had a whole thread about it, full of the usual nonsense from people who hated Ebdon.
        9 - Sounds familiar but I don't remember who the player was. I don't know... Gary Wilson?
        10 - Mike Hallett?

                      yes Dean i noticed that from youtube afterwards , still don't know why he's carrying two butts in the box , i'd get two shafts to avoid re - tipping but not two butts .

                          Just to clarify , all i can find referring to perry being a lawyer is that he studied a - level law during his schooldays , is a bit of a mental handstand to connect the dots but thats modern broadcasting for you i suppose .

                            Yep I could have been a snooker pro, I knew all the names of things when I was at school. Cue, balls, rest etc, I don't know where it went wrong, I ended up being a lawyer.
                            ( that's not true)

                              I think it was a one piece and he used it for a fair few years.
