Rocket Ronnie will be the man to beat obviously, especially after winning the Irish masters, but the usual suspects all have as good a chance of reaching the final as each other. Mark Williams is one of my favourites, I hope he goes far, but Ronnie is the best to watch. Ding will be in great form too, after beating Hendry in the Chinese Open. Did you hear Hunter has been diagnosed with cancer? Link.

 

Looks like I'm quitting my job just in time. I f*cking love watching the snooker all daytime. smile.gif

I'm a big Snooker man as well Joe.

 

And I'm pretty lucky as I'm going to see:

 

Marco Fu 19th Tuesday 10AM

 

Graeme Dott 21st Thursday 6:30PM

 

Doherty/McManus 22nd Friday 2:30PM

 

By the way Ding isn't in the World Championships. He got knocked out early in the Qualifying rounds. wink.gif

Watch snooker now and again, and its bad news about Paul Hunter. I wish him all my support at this time, and I hope he makes a speedy recovery.

Yeah, recently heard about that on BBC News. Paul Hunter diagnosed with cancer.

 

Anyway, I'm a fan of Stephen Hendry although my money's on O'Sullivan clinching a win. (No change there)

I've been a fan of snooker since I was very little, and am a member of a couple of snooker clubs. I'm not really any good at it, but it's a cool game to play.

Anyone been following the Premier League Snooker? I was watching it earlier and O'Sullivan beat Williams, but why do they insist on playing bloody 50 Cent before, during and after frames? confused.gif

Never been before, went to the Malta Masters last year though & the tickets are ok price wise, for the Graeme Dott match I'm in the second row & they cost £11 while the Fu ticket cost £6 for row G & the Doherty/McManus cost £7 for G, the only reason they're slightly dearer is the fact that it's a Second Round match.

 

Did have tickets as well for the Quarter Final, but I can't make it so I'm selling them.

 

@ Dave: What's your best break mate? I'm part of like 5 Snooker clubs, used to go every day for an hour than other things got a hold of me & I couldn't make it as much. My highest ever break was something like 45 which I'm really proud of!

Ive been thinking about making a snooker topic a few times, but meh, too late.

 

I love relaxing in my lounge watching snooker, it could go on for hours on end, and id still be there. I find the most interesting part of the game to be the safety play, because its interesting to see who will make a first mistake, and at the start of the frame, and see if the guy can take advantage and run the frame through. I always try to anticipate the players next move.

 

If i had to make a bet on who'd win the world title, id put my money on the rocket. Id have tipped Junhui to progress far in the tournament, with the way he is playing at the mo. Who managed to knock him out?

Lee Spick knocked him out in the Second Round of Qualifying, he beat him 10-7.

My highest is 41 I believe. I really don't play a lot. Maybe once a month. confused.gif

I enjoy both playing and watchin snooker, the world championships this year have the potential to be amazing with all the 'smaller' players coming through, but Ronnie will of course be the man to get past, but it might actually be possible this year. I think young Stephen Maguire has a great chance of doing very well indeed.

Just bought a Second Round Ticket off eBay for £2.90! biggrin.gif

 

That makes it 4 matches I'm going to, with hopefully Quarter Final 1 on the books aswell which could involve Rocket Ronnie!

Man that is really sad, I am a fan of Paul Hunter, he is great.

 

Overall, I enjoy watching snooker, it is just something to watch and I am always amazed at some shots pulled off.

Watching Snooker live is a gazillion times better than watching it on the TV!

 

Not bad 3 1/2hours of class snooker for £8.

 

Great game, which saw Ali f*cking demolish Marco, even though neither player was on particularly good form. Never saw a century, but there were some great shots & I got to see Michaela referee the Whirlwind match. blush.gif

 

Jimmy got a bloody huge welcome into the Crucible & I got to chat to Ali Carter, Michaela Tabb & Willie Thorne who was going to collect his winnings from William Hill! lol.gif

 

I SUGGEST IF YOU CAN GET TICKETS & GET TO SHEFFIELD THEN DO IT AS IT'S f*ckING BRILLIANT!

Yep, well played Murphy. Shame O'Sullivan wasn't in the final really. All credit to Matthew Stevens, though.
