Like yesterday when Bingham won two quick frames, the next frame was the 63 minute one, so it's obviously a tactic that he employs, it may be within the rules but it's not in the spirit which is why even the crowd seem to be turning against him it feels like now.
The thing is he is good enough to not have to deploy these tactics, his break building is good enough to go toe to toe with pretty much all of the other players so all this gamesmanship isn't even required, he could win without them and also keep the respect of the paying and watching public at the same time, the way he is going he will be remembered as an ATG but also remembered for his gamesmanship which is a shame for his legacy as like I say he could be just as successful without deliberately slowing matches down and playing on when there is no chance of winning the frame, there's just no need for all of that is there.
