      There was controversy in one of the earlier quarter-finals as a furious Anthony Hamilton blamed a TV cameraman after losing 5-2 to Mark King.

      “The cameraman was moving on every shot, all the way through the match,” said the player who beat Ronnie O’Sullivan yesterday. “It was hard to concentrate and it did my head in. I’m still angry about it now.

      “Whenever I was down on the shot he was in line with me and his arms were moving around. He had an attitude problem. I complained three times about it but it didn’t make any difference. Then they changed one of the cameramen but it was the wrong one.

      “Once your concentration is gone it’s difficult to get it back. I know it was the same for both players but I let it get to me.”

      This is beyond a joke surely, do the cameramen get no training at all !!

          If he played a few pool comps at the pub he'd be used to this behaviour! But seriously it's a real shame considering it's his best run for some time.
