Trivia:

The qualifiers for the 1993 World Championships finished in September 1992.

The Norbreck Castle was a great venue.

Danny Fowler had 7 months contemplating a match with Hendry in the first round and got whitewashed 9-0 in the first session.

Back to work today. :grrr:

Wouldn't mind seeing Fu and Stevens today either, and I'm going back the day Ding starts too. :grrr:

I was enjoying the Ali vs Ben match last night though. I'll watch the end of that today. :D It'll mean missing the end of the highly anticipated Selby vs Selty first session though.

your prediction for fu match ?


Tough one to call that, aint it?

I'll go with a narrow Fu win. Just because I believe it will be close, and it's Stevens. He likes to bottle close matches.



I think fu will win revenge for last year

Is this Higgins loss to Mavis as big a shock as everybody is making out? Higgins has been playing poorly for several months, and Mark Davis is a solid player.

I was more surprised when Higgins lost to Steve Davis a couple of years back.

Matthew Selt, who makes his Crucible debut on Tuesday against world number one Mark Selby, has accused Trump of making "barbaric" comments about Neil Robertson.

:parrot: :parrot: :parrot: :parrot:


"And obviously Judd's a fantastic player but he said something ridiculous when he lost to Neil at the Masters last year

:parrot: :parrot: :parrot:

"He said that Neil's done very well out of the game for his talent, and that's absolutely barbaric because in my opinion he's never going to be as good as Neil.

"Obviously I just thought that was a bit strange and I sent him a message saying, 'Look Judd, you're not like that, you shouldn't be saying stuff like that, that isn't you'.

"He didn't get back to me.


:wave: :wave:

And it's weird when your mates (change). I've known Neil Robertson since he was nothing really, and you see people like that who doesn't change one bit, and people like John Higgins, Joe Perry and Mark Williams are the same people now as they were when they were just getting on the tour.

Judd on the other hand has an out of control ego.

THE FINAL QUOTE

“I’m not going to lose any sleep over it. I’ve moved on from having Judd as my friend to having Stephen Hendry
