Not far off the unanswered points record. Think its about 450.

O'Sullivans twisted logic coming to the fore once again.

He's off the planet since winning in Shanghai. Needs to take a break.

An alternative explanation is that he did execute a rather lackluster shot on the blue suggesting right after the feather in frustration he played a penance shot in return for not going to the hassle of fessing up for the feather. Could have been hung over and been feeling flippant.

Fergal wont be happy either losing 4-2 to Andy Lee.
You defo feel it.

Interest situation in the snooker. Selby is 24 points ahead and some tippy tappy occurs. Lisowski gives away 4, and then it's back to tip tap for about 10 mins. Ref steps in and says that they will have a few more shots each, and he will force a rerack. (This frame was already reracked)

Selby asked how many shots, and the ref says it's up to him. Selby was a bit pissed because he obviously wanted to know how many shots he had to play with. He finally plays away from the pack and within 2/3 shots, the frame has developed. Still no balls been pot in 20 mins or so.

I reckon Selby was still pissed at Lisowski for fluking a red in the last frame, not apologising, and going on to win the frame. He looks a little rattled.

Nearly some type of first first id say in the German Masters Qualifiers just there. Trump v Wells, looking like a re rack down to 2 balls remaining and they were both just sidling up to the pink with the 2 balls locked in the jaws. Until Wells hits the black first in this shot when leading. Pots the black and sticks up the pink.

What do you reckon here? 100% agree with John Virgo. Carter is a horrible little prick anyway, but it's against John Higgins, so potatos potatoes.

Wasnt sure how I felt at the time. Still not tbh. Highlights the problem of relying on players to be honest when theres a fair few quid at stake. Why couldn't the ref check the camera if he was in doubt himself.

Meh, top level sportsman cheats. Over to Jean for the weather where she tells us water is wet.

I'm going to go against the odious Carter before even watching it.

... In London for the U.K masters... Got tickets for both semi finals and the final tomorrow... First semi final was really good, and although 6-3 it felt like it was a really tight match, good atmosphere and could feel the pressure...Evening match was a bit disappointing, Gilbert just didn't show up... Reckon Bingham will win, probably 10-6/10-7, although would love a 10-9 match...
...Really enjoying it, great experience to go to a big event, venue is great looking... £85 for the semi finals, and £95 for the final... If tomorrow is as enjoyable as today, I'm probably gonna make it a yearly trip...
