I like snooker starting early. You don't get all that tiresome waiting around until midday for snooker to start. <laugh>

He still is good Bourne,of course not as good as he was 10 years ago,after all he,s a lot older now than he was 10 years ago isn,t he. :-)


I cant wait to how your beloved Judd Trump will play snooker at the age of 42,(Hendry will in fact be 43 tomorrow)!. :-)

Doubt he'll have time to play snooker at that age tbh, he'll be too busy polishing all 8 of his World Championship trophy replicas ...

Yes indeed "Witz78" indeed!. we,ll just have to wait n see.


It,s gonna be intresting to see just how long Hendry decides to play,some say he should retire,some would like to see him carry on.

I for one obviously would love to see him carry on especially now that grandpa Barrys got snooker flowin again and has produced many more tournaments.


Now that the snookers on the up,it would actually be a bit silly to retire,after all this is what all the players have been wanting,so why retire!.

Plenty of good matches in the first round this year. :D

You mentioned two good ones, but I'm looking forward to Murphy vs Gould too. And Higgins vs Stevens. (Though, this may go down to who blobs first. <laugh> )
