Exceptionally nawty match this. Gwaaarrrn Dotty.

Judd's hair now looks like it's trying to run away from his face. I think we're witnessing the death throes.

I tend to think the amount of snooker readily available on terrestrial TV is the right amount, but I like all sorts of sport so I'd never just order the plate of hummus, nice though it is.

Never mind coronavirus, snooker should be more worried about AIDS:

Fair enough. Snooker is the only sport I give a major fuck about so a Eurosport sub feels like a pretty good deal to me.

German Masters final today. World Grand Prix in Cheltenham starts tomorrow. Going snooker loopy here. Love it.

Also I find the Eurosport Player app really handy for the gym. I can do an hour on the elliptical concentrating on the snooker and not getting bored. I like watching Netflix in the gym too but I have a crap attention span and live sport is better for holding my attention.

I'm considering Eurosport but I have the same issue - snooker is the only sport I have any interest in watching. I will check out if my BT subscription has a deal.

Incidentally, I am sure some of you probably follow the Break from Life snooker channel where that man with a very monotone voice plays some amazing amateur snooker in his garage. His latest video tries to recreate the shots of the Masters tournament - and in particular he takes some time to explain that Maguire red.

When did it stop on the BBC? Feels like a lifetime ago that I used to bung the snwcer on in the background to help me sleep. John Virgo's valium tones.

I don't know about BT but I think Virgin TV and some Sky packages include Eurosport. I'm not sure those subscriptions would let you watch it on the apps though.

I only watch snooker on Eurosport but they show pretty much all of the snooker. At £3.33 per month it's less than half the cost of Amazon Prime and I watch it far more.

For the big ones which the BBC do show I prefer Eurosport's commentators to the BBC's. They know when to talk and when to shut the fuck up and not ruin the drama.

Break From Life on YouTube is excellent and I shall have to check out that new video later, cheers Puce.

Grand Prix, then. Gilbo vs Ronjo in a nice close match. Ronnie refusing to wear the crappy crown patch on his waistcoat as expected. Fair enough.

It's on Itv4 at the moment but the camera angle on the table is different to the usual one. The different fore shortening really freaks me out.

I wish they would do more overhead shots - it really shows the size of the table and how the ball bounces off the cushion if it has a bit of side. It would also be a good way to replace the balls after a foul.

If a player has won all three Triple Crown events they are now entitled to wear a little crown patch on their waistcoats:




It's another one of Barry Hearn's kitsch ideas, and a particularly tacky one which is supposed to be a signifier of prestige but just makes the players look like they work at Burger King.

Ronnie, having won more Triple Crown titles than any other player, thinking "Fuck this" is funny.

Ronnie comes back to level at 3 frames apiece but not without knocking a red clean off the table and then potting a red on the split off the blue as he did when Cahill beat him. Had a chance to get back into the seventh frame but potted the cue ball.

Will one of you fuckers put ITV4 on, please?

Wish I'd put a fiver on Dotty now

Commentators talking about how Ronnie might actually have to enter the Snooker Shootout now. I don't care how naff it is thanks to Bazza, that's fucking funny.

Tonight Dotty is ON FIRE like Maguire

Mainly due to unsanitary and badly maintained facilities at his bedsit in Arbroath.
