Studd is a professional sports commentator - very good at opening and closing the frame and making structured analysis. Yates, the ultimate statto and a genuinely decent guy but a terrible delivery. It’s those annoying pauses and then his voice goes up at the end of each sentence.

If you listen to Yates on the snooker scene podcast, his voice isn't at all annoying. I wish he'd bring that more conversational delivery to his commetary.

It’s still a bit annoying.

I can get that. Instead of his commentary comprising of lots of mini statements he’d do better to imagine he was sitting in the pub chatting to his mates, rather Pulman-esque.

Well it's not the aural bathtime you get listening to Angles or Terry Griffiths, but it's just a normal voice.

Actually scratch that, I don’t want them hiring Yates either.
