About a month ago I would've said the Shanghai Masters, but thankfully World Snooker managed to pull their finger out.

Sounds like it's become generic though. :grrr:

hands down the best one, especially the venue at Goffs that made the event so special.

Great venue. It was like the Masters without all the crappy hype and an even more select field.


Do you think that you might be.... biased?

No. The Irish Masters was never the same after it moved to Citywest, even when it was an invitational. Not that Citywest didn't do their best, it just wasn't Goffs and was never going to be.

We basically had two Crucibles.

The Yamaha Organs trophy. It was a round robin of 3 players in each group, playing best of 3 frames. If there was a tie in terms of wins and frames, the 3 players had to try and clear the colours until a victor emerged. I think it was last held in 1984. Steve Davis won the event, but the thing I remember most was Kirk Stevens not being far off of a 150 break. He broke down on 107 when he missed the penultimate red down the side rail.

A slightly fun event with different players emerging.
