Wow, Power Snooker is coming back!

'We are now in a position to start and the UK Championships will be held in 2018, and then as an annual event. The Group is in negotiation talks with potential partners in USA, Ukraine, Canada, Russia, India, South Africa, Greece, Cyprus, and China for the rights to stage their own National Championships, with the goal of holding our first World Cup Championship in 2022, worth £1,000,000 to the winner.'

I like this

For some time the Group has been exploring the club scene where the Power Snooker Community can meet, play Power Snooker, hold club competitions, socialise, together with business facilities, and bar and dining facilities.

I don't really follow Boxing much but isn't Warren involved with Box Nation and a rival of Hearn. I think Phil Taylor was mocking him a few weeks ago.

He founded it.

Sky lessened their boxing coverage, and only show Hearn events now. Warren created Boxnation to show his and other events.

'Over the years millions of pounds have been spent to perfect the sport in accordance with current trends and create a global brand.'

It definitely wasn't spent on the website

Makes it sound like some secret society.

Has this got any legs?

I can't say I've heard of anyone mourning the demise of Power Snooker or will money talk and if the prize money is big enough then it will gain some cred?

I assume it will bring scheduling into conflict with Hearn if Warren wants the top snooker names involved. Whether Hearn would sanction this tournament. Doubt he'd be as keen to do so as with some other invitational events.

Crypto currency as well. How strange.

The thing is the more weird stuff you see the more there most likely, or I would say that surely, is or are some wisdom in it.

The snooker players ain´t wise at all. For example. The same money could be made much easier. Some people out there knows it and makes it visible. The more stranger things you see, you just need to figure that wisdom out of it.

It is still a good old game. The snooker. But they would need to think out of their own boxes more. And even the money isn´t everything. It can be much, I agree, but there are easier and more stress-free ways to make the same amount.

Now then. Now when I have finally got it, not to have any too big respect towards any professional snooker player or towards any professional tournament, I am not going to allow it to slip away. Never. They have been some resilient people, I need to admit that. Now they just need to have the same resilience as the going gets tough.

And who says that London doesn´t still rule the world?? Who german could produce the same perfection while being systematic?? The germans only have their great and handsome heritages and the attitudes. And their trademark friendliness. But someone like Jimmy White can just shut down the players. Oooooooohhh, how good was that???? The germans can´t do that. It requires a certain climate. Play a few frames against Jimmy White and you will never wan´t to play any snooker anymore. Even when being a hugely enthusiastic and a promising talented player.

See. While I at times, or quite often actually, point out a player. Or a two. It´s not that I actually predict or foresee that they would actually rule the game. It is all about that I see and foresee them as a forces to reckon. The strong INFLUENCE is the key word. They could have a massive influence, even while not perhaps winning much anything. Via the way they play or the such things.

Surely, realistically, the current top snooker is perhaps the rivalry between Mark Selby, Ronnie O´Sullivan, Neil Robertson, Shaun Murphy, John Higgins. For example. There´s beside Stephen Hendry, and excluding Shaun Murphy, the only players who have made over 500 career centuries. Or Mark Selby actually is about to get it very soon. But besides them, many other top players can have a massive, a much bigger, influence. It´s like Roy Keane used to have a massive influence on ManU or Patrick Viera on Arsenal. Even when most of the top coaches these days would admit that given the run of the game, they shouldn´t had that.

Always take things calm and with a good sportsmanship. Regardless if losing or winning.

I've never really understood was Bitcoin is. An on-line currency, right?

How can they just invent an online currency, and get everybody to agree to pretend it's actual currency?

I've tried a few times to work it out and couldn't.

Bitcoin is a form of digital currency, created and held electronically. No one controls it. Bitcoins aren’t printed, like dollars or euros – they’re produced by people, and increasingly businesses, running computers all around the world, using software that solves mathematical problems.

It’s the first example of a growing category of money known as cryptocurrency.
