I know they are big and historic tournaments, but is the UK Championship any more prestigious than say the International Championship any more? The prestige seemed to decrease a bit when they shortened the matches. Has The Masters been diluted a bit with all these other top player only tournaments?
To be clear, I like The Masters, but am slightly less bothered by the UK nowadays.
It just seems the BBC were spanking themselves more than they usually do with it this week. During the final, they showed a montage of action from the last decade's worth of 'majors'. (Ie. just clips from old BBC tournaments.) Hazel kept banging on about how it's been 10 years since Ding has won a 'major', as if everything he's won since has been meaningless.
I get they're going to promote the stuff on their channel, but has it reached a point where they're just overdoing it now?
