Verrrrrrrry well done Matthew!!.



Even though he bottled a few like he usualy does,he deserves full respect,credit,getting to a final at his age,(35) is verrrry good indeed.



I fully admit,i never ever thought he,d get that far in a proper ranking tourney again and he of course has the chance to even go on and win it,so verrrry well done Matthew!. :clap: <ok>

if i was Barry Hearn id want answers from the Haikou organizers.

it looks so empty there and its a semi final.

i know the chinese are TV Nuts and possibly TV Audiences are huge but if they have problem filling out the venue they should look else where.

You want Mark Allen to win? I find him quite difficult to route for, based on the fact he's such a douche.

Witz, are you colour blind?


Did you know that colour blindness is exclusively a male condition? Women can't get it, but they can carry the gene. My mate was colour blind because his granddad was. His mother suffered from no such condition.


Yes I did :hatoff:



It's not exclusive to men, just much more common. The gene invoved is sex linked, women have a back up copy and both would need to be defective for her vision to be affected.

True, but I didn't think a snooker forum was the right place to go into detail about sex linked recessive conditions.
