some minor tweaks to IMPROVE the worlds will happen, such as what i suggest above.
a few frames less here and there is harldy the end of the world (pardon the pun)
its the 21st century and snooker cant stay stale forever
nothing means bucking nothing no bucking about here NOTHING
what part of that is bucking complicated ???
minimal is as good as nothing
a few minor tweaks to actually improve it would help IMO and im sure Hearn thinks the same
Theres some major flaws with the WC format as it is at the moment.
1) The final ending on a Bank Holiday Monday which is no good to anyone not in the UK
2) The final session of the final being played at night time which is not ideal for young fans, Europeans and Chinese.
3) The semi finals over 3 days are too long and far too drawn out and sometimes anti-climatic
4) The players getting little or no rest before the final, hence the standard often being poor.
Id happily see best of 19s in the first 2 rounds then best of 25s in the quarters and semis.
Ok, so its a change but its hardly impacting majorly on the lengths of matches but these tweaks allow the final to be finished on a Sunday afternoon/early evening, players to get a rest before final etc, so i think anyone against these sort of changes is just a traditionalist fool with their feet firmly dug in the ground with the blinkers on.
