Not 795 again! Not going to happen


Well I'm back from school early tomorrow, so I'll see what I can do ;-)

No. But I'm smart enough to know that backing Carter against Ronnie is a hopeless cause.

Sadly, I will have to miss the morning session... College exam.. but will be back at around 1 p.m so wont miss no further session until the tourney ends. Will record the morning one though to watch later.

I've watched almost every session... it really has been a snooker marathon.. it always is at this time of the year.. cant complain though :-D :-D :-D love it :-D

Yes it's a real marathon and it is becoming emotionally draining now because I badly want Ronnie to win this and it's just such a long way. He's now playing every day and the title is so near but yet so far away right now.

Exactly.. :hatoff: :hatoff: :hatoff: Your words perfectly describe what I'm feeling too...

Really hope Ronnie doesn't let us down this time... I couldn't possibly bear it.. :-(

Fortunately Ronnie is "only" playing Matthew Stevens. Just imagine he would play Selby or Ding right now. After the epic battle with Robertson he would have to play his best snooker again without a day to rest. He can take a few liberties against Stevens and that takes a bit of pressure off, he doesn't have to play his best in all 4 sessions and he's still favourite to win the match.

Ronnie shouldn't have problems with stamina. He's won the title thrice already and knows how to pace himself.

That really is something that has seen Ronnie lose matches in the past. Often he has to play his best snooker to beat an opponent, he beats him.. but then in the next round he has another very tough one and he sometimes cant quite keep that standard he had.. Had he faced Selby here... would have been so so tough...

yeah with Stevens it takes a bit of pressure off... but still, he cant rely too much on that, otherwise could get beat

"Most unlikely" :john:


Unlikeliest is a superlative of unlikely <ok>


But you have two superlatives. Most is one too. :john:

why did you need to use the word MOST in front of it then cos its doing emphasising exactly the same thing that the EST at the end of unlikely is doing, so either you go with one or the other. <ok>
