And then throughout the tournament I didn't notice many balls doing the pocket jarring that is normally a very common site during the World Championship, they'd either go in or shoot off somewhere else. The pocket wobble was such a rarity I can't even remember one specific example.
And then MJW tweeted about Buckets. And then some commentators were talking about the pockets being different this year. And then snooker islanders were guffawing about the misses going in, with the term Buckets becoming a bit of a meme.
So what was the deal with the tables this year? Did they actually change them? And, if so, in what way?
