i agree with you its not but same could be said of pot black if this is a limited thing ok but its not as exciting as World Ranking and not by a long shots.
People who Remember Ranking Tournaments on Sky would remember how exciting they was they were events on their own great production and i enjoyed them better than the UK or the GP. Ranking Tournaments need to go back on Sky and as i said above id give them the UK.
I understand that this is an exhibition event, and not meant to replace real event. So essentially slight rule changes in aren't particularly a big deal. I just feel the 12-minute and it's over, no matter what rule doesn't seem to add anything. Though I could be wrong, I still would feel short changed if something interesting was about to happen, or the frame had got tense, and the players were taken off.
I guess the point is that this is supposed to encourage players trying to pot anything, so it doesn't last 12 minutes. I am prepared to give it a chance, but I can see it not being the most interesting or exciting thing ever. Each to their own, I guess. But like I say, until we see real ranking events added, or at the very least a lot more non-gimmicked snooker events added, I aint going to get too excited.
And talking of gimmicks, does anybody know if "The Grim Reaper" is still appearing in this?
