Won't get this kind of excitement in the new European Super snooker league with just Carter, Murphy and Higgins playing every week.

If she isn't on EuroSport she doesn't exist to me.

Dingham goes 7-5 up against Bingham! He's starting to look pretty sharp.

Ding looking Bond villain-serene now. How long will the twitchy-eyed dreamboat keep his composure?

Everyone looks like a Bond villain to me now.

Fucking hell Ding, even Jimmy White would have potted that black.

Fuck, I think I'd struggle to miss it.

He’s never going to win this thing is he? 15 years ago it looked a certainty, a matter of when rather than if. I don’t think it’s going to happen for him now.

Everyone discusses how difficult to it is to be friendly with someone who has totally different political opinions etc....but I'd deck anyone who is cheering on Bingham against lovely Ding even if you have your life savings on the baldy.

For Sure.

That red Ding potted long to start the break I totally missed. Assumed he was going for thickish cut safety and was annoyed the cue-ball didn't end up safe, as I took my eye off the pocket.

Come on Ding kid.

While playing Snooker 19 once I heard "GWARRRRN STUART". I had thought I imagined it but no, Mr Jam heard it too (I was playing as Mark Williams or James Cahill, probably).

That reminds me, I must try and get a few more games in during the Worlds, when there might actually be some other players in the lobby. Hugely missing the bricks-and-mortar snooker club though.

Slight sidetrack. But was listening to a general sports podcast; where presenters for some reason seemed to be going on about how everyone hated sport. Was a terrible comment in so many ways about how having a load of Chinese players coming through was going to be terrible for snooker. And how you don't get to relate to them or anything.
I mean so much more personality in Ding or Wan BinTao far more than a Mark Allen or Shaun Murphy.

translators and subtitlists just do not exist anymore do they, ffs. would rather hear what's going on with Ding than most of the top 100.

Urgh.

I hope China wipe British snooker players off the map. I hope in 2035 they are gathered around taking selfies of themselves shitting on Ricky Walden's corpse and laughing. No characters in the game anymore.

Not to mention Zhou Yuelong and Marco Fu (does Hong Kong count?) making the effort to dress up a bit. Yeah, fuck that. There's more showmanship in Marco's monogrammed "MF" cuffs than there is in Mark Selby's entire body.

Watching The Person From Leicester vs Kurt Maplins now. Hoping Maplins makes another obscene gesture at the cue ball.

yeah bit of a masterclass this by Selbore. I am comforted by the fact that form in snooker seems much more fleeting. Higgins was playing perfect snooker a month ago, yesterday he limped by a qualifier. Think when Dott won the world title he'd been crap for ages and just found a groove.

So with Ding gone, Mark Williams to beat John Higgins is my big rooting interest in Round 2.

What's the CaB concensus on Mark J's break-off shot? He's been coming off the black cushion and going into the pack from below, leaving the cue ball above the black so he doesn't leave a long pot on for his opponent.  Neil Foulds on Eurosport reckons it's going to get banned. Apparently Judd Trump isn't a fan of it which makes me want to support it 100%.
