I'd like to go the British Open. Even booked a hotel in Leicester for the finals weekend. (Cancellation is free of charge.)

Thinking of not bothering now. Leave going to snooker for a few months.

It’s a fluff piece. The cynical among us might see it as an attempt to make an unpopular player more popular.

Failed on that,instead of I love you Rob Walker would love to seen Roy Keane teaching Selby how to swim.

Leicester is a hot spot. I would stay clear for the moment and save your bacon for tournaments later on in the year

Even I’m not that cynical!

There's a few events now announced for Leicester. The British Open will be staged, as will The Championship League, quite a few of the qualifying events and the Shoot-Out.

I like seeing famous people's houses, i guess there is a little bit of envy in me when i see nice houses.

I am suprised that some of the top players dont have their own snooker rooms though, i would have thought all the top players could easily afford a pad big enough. Bit of a shocker hearing Selby say that.

Selby had a tough upbringing, pleased that he enjoys the fruits of his labours, he works hard in his career. Good luck to him.

Wonder if they'll do other players? They need to get the filming sorted though the Selby one kept going out of focus.

Very true. Whether I’m drawn to him as a person or not, I sincerely respect what he’s achieved and what he’s gone through to get to where he is.

I'm looking at this thread on a PC for the first time, and it's the only time I've seen that there's a video here.

I thought it was just a comment on how many events are being held in Leicester.

I always go to ‘reply with quote’ on stuff like this to see if there’s a vid.

Sometimes Dan must feel like he’s talking to a brick wall :-)

There's a video?? That makes a lot more sense.
