Some nice ties and a lot of players with a lot to prove. I think it could be a right old shoot out. I think the PTCs have been great and I think the majority of the players think so too, but let's face it they've been the starter for events like this. I think the players are primed and there'll be a lot of quality snooker on show, hopefully also from our two grand masters, Jimmy and Stephen.
I've got a nasty feeling that the tie will bring the best out of Stephen, but Jimmy just has to play the balls and forget the man. These points are already invaluable to him and that's what he should be playing for in this game, nothing else.
This new ranking system protects no-one so anyone who wants to stay up top will have to keep performing. It's one more thing the game has been crying out for; no-one on their laurels and everyone zoned on every ball.
Should be quality. Unfortunately I'll be keeping up as usual on live score and any youtube gratefully partaken
Enjoy the UK fellows and ladies. Our game is buzzing
