So, do you believe that this final will be considered as a classic one, in the years to come, despite having top players of the game facing each other?

I think it will be. All the emotion from start to finish, the tension it had especially in the last two frames and King's honest and candid speech after his maiden win, will be memorable.

It was certainly an entertaining final. At 5-1 it looked routine to Hawkins, then at 7-5 it looked like Hawkins might not win another frame. At 8-8, I had no idea who was going to win.

It just proves that it doesn't matter if a lot of higher ranked players pull out, we can still get a high standard of final.

Put it like this. What final did you prefer? Hawkins vs King, or Selby vs Ding from the International Championship.

The 16th frame alone will make this a classic for me. First time i've ever seen anything like that, it was incredible. I said it during the match, but there was some real quality safety play in that second session.

I Think this Final highlighted the appeal of snooker.


its not the Superstar clash of Ronnie v Judd its about a story the match Entails.


For years ive been fed up of comments by some people on line that seems to think unless you get top players playing it wont be good.

i wanted Kyren to win a young guy building up his career but from every angle of the Semi final line up there was a story and that what its all about Snooker was the winner in Northern Ireland.

The BBC don't help with their constant licking up to Ronnie and Judd. Nor their explaining of lower rankeds as; "I don't know much about this player." <doh>

Well said, Wildey, that's the way I feel too.

It was a match that could make people who were watching snooker for the first time, to love this game. But it was even more satisfying for all of us who follow the game in every tournament.

Overall, I really enjoyed the whole tournament, so many emotions in many games.

What's really disappointing is she's not as sexy as she used to be.


What? When she was a baby?

Yes, when she was a bucking baby.

I just found it funny how you're jizzing over a final between a 38 year old and a 42 year old, when you e made it clear many times you have no time for the older generation.
