What an inspiration to older players Mark Davis is. I bet years back the bloggers never saw this coming! For a time now I have felt that many bloggers have over-estimated the young players and under-estimated the older experienced ones, hence people like Dave Hendon tweeting "torch passed" during the 2012 Masters between O'Sullivan and Trump! <laugh> For the record, since that time O'Sullivan has won two World Championships, a Masters and a UK Championship, while Judd (whilst being a very good, exciting, promising player) hasn't won any triple crown events.

Mark Williams is the only non English player still in the championship.

if Selby had beaten Williams it would have been a all English Quarter final. cant remember if that ever happened before.

That's a good trivia question!
Although not quarter-finals exactly, this seasons Championship League was heading for an all-English winners group until Dave Gilbert lost in the final of Group 7 to Xiao Guodong.
Also, back in October, the Bulgarian PTC had 13 Englishmen in the last 16.
Interestingly, the PTC that Ju Reti won last season had 7 Chinese players in the quarters (Michael Holt being the other)!
But a full-house of one nationality occupying all 8 quarter-final spots...? What we've got here may well equal the Chinese record - although I'm sure England will have had 7 before.

The Lady refereeing the match, Perry v Holt, is Chinese.

Denied, for shame. :grrr:


They could've done a musical number, to the tune of Marley and Marley from A Muppet's Christmas Carol.

"We're Selby and Selty....." :D

This 4th frame Perry v Holt has been a comedy of errors. That's if you can still laugh
