its just a buck about their ranking wont suffer you play for fun you can pot anything.
Some players still take this very seriously though. Haven't you seen the massive relief in the face of Jamie Jones after beating Mark Williams. And he admitted that he felt nervy while making the frame winning break.
Michael White was also very relieved after beating Trump yesterday and celebrated it with a fist pump.
There's a lot of money to be won or not won. If I won a frame of snooker that meant I could pay off a chunk of the mortgage I wouldn't be able to hide my relief/delight.
Yes no doubt. And the lower ranked players especially are gonna try everything they can to win this. It's the best chance they'll ever get to win so much money. That's why I can't really say its a tournament with no pressure. That only applies to certain players (like the very topplayers).
