Not sure about that guy in the audience wearing a Google t-shirt. It was even a pun or anything. Just a standard Google logo on a t-shirt.

Fucking weirdo. Firebomb his house.

(He probably posts here so I'm hoping he'll see this.)

This is fantastic, this is the equivalent of Brazil v France in football circa 1986.

I'm sorry. A bald maverick?

Alex Higgins was a bald maverick... This is snooker, not the US Presidency or Doctor Who- not only are you allowed to be bald, it's actively encouraged.

Talking of which, at least one Trump is having a good day.  Albeit with similarly questionable trichological issues.

In a stunning confession, Trump revealed even something as simple as checking into a hotel has proved problematic.

"It's almost every time," he said.

"They'll look at my details and say something like, 'Oh, that's unfortunate — do you wish you had more hair?'

Interesting. Does he 'hair up' for televised matches? Or use that hair surgery that former cricketers advertise?

This is bollocks - I’m missing Ding’s comeback because of a power cut. My neighbour has rang up and it might not be sorted out until half six. If anybody gets a 147 I’m going to be right pissed off.

Nearly the craziest 147 ever.

I gave you the first half of the tournament and his entire first match. He was heading out the night I posted it.

You need to have a long, hard look at yourself.

"I understand that the western philosophy is about getting more and more is never enough but I don't adopt that. Greed can come out in many ways but the less greedy you are, the more satisfied you become.

"I was very nervous today, shaking in the first few frames and not handling that well. I managed to pot a few balls but did not feel serene as usual. You have to try and control it.

"To win tournaments you have to be quite aggressive and make things happen. You don't get many defensive players getting to finals these days and even the ones you think are defensive are actually attacking in their own ways."

Nutcase but less self-pitying than previously and seems to have got it together mentally at the minute.

I like how politely terrified Ding seemed when Ronnie was kissing and hugging him. Something bizarrely endearing about Ronnie's love for him though.

I've warmed to Ronnie a bit too now he's calmed down a bit. He was sporting throughout that match (tapping the baize in appreciation of Ding's safety shots etc), plus after watching The Rack Pack on YouTube (it's gone off iPlayer, booooo) I got a recommendation for Ronnie O'Sullivan's American Hustle, a History Channel series where he goes across the US playing pool and going to museums and learning about Elvis and Rosa Parks and that, and I got drawn in. A guilty pleasure for sure but it's strangely watchable.
