The match of the day is and i,m sure most will agree with is Trump v Hawkins.



I,m really lookin forward to that.



One has to fav Hawkins,but his good run of consistency has to come to an end sometime,will Trump be the one who stops his impressive run. :chin:







Scotts done brilliant gettin so far and has a decent chance of goin even further into a tournament,later today,i hope he brings his A game,cause he,s gonna need it.





Bingo should take care of Carrington,unless he serves up his C/D game,which he,s served up a good few times since he won the Worlds.





Would love to see Maflin beat Milkins,me thinks he will.

Are you Barry Hearn's PR man?

I was being sarcastic. Mind you, I don't dislike best-of-7s for 128 tournaments like this, they're probably as good as you can hope for with such a large field, but I don't see why they need to be at events like the Grand Prix which only has 32 at a venue.

I'd rather have best of 7s pretty much every week than have best of 9 tournaments but only every 2-3 weeks.

I went to snooker on Wednesday, always go to Bill's for a takeaway coffee. Saw Shaun Murphy in there having breakfast with Mark Allen. Also in there was Ronnie.

Anyway I predict Trump will beat Hawkins today, while Hawkins is good reaching 2 con sequtive ranking finals is a tall order, Trump to end his run.

Trump to go on to win final beating Bingham in final.

Hope Yuelong and Maflin win their matches.

Thoroughly enjoyed the tournament and all the different players coming through and the shocks.

Maybe we are at last seeing a changing of the guard and there will be a wholesale change in top 16/32 personnel in next 2-3 years. It is needed in my view to freshen the game.

Hopefully Hawkins wrecks Trump. Trump getting beaten is always a good thing.

Would like Zhou to win his match.

The bottom half doesn't really bother me much, i'm not really fussed about any of the players. I guess Carrington or Maflin coming through would be nice.

Aye aye <ok>

Yuelong winning would be the best thing I agree.

But on the other hand I always loved Maflins style of play, if he won I would be very happy all the same.

I'd like to see the Milkman win. For the same reason.

Ridiculous shedulling in the these Home Nations events... no more so than the Quarter_finals... why are 3 on the main table and then a 7pm one on another is beyond me.

If they didnt want to risk a Quarter-Final being played too late in the evening for the last one to start, then I would propose a simple solution:

10 am 1st Quarter-Final
NB12 pm 2nd

5pm 3rd
NB7 pm 4th

They have morning sessions in the biggest tournament of all, the Worlds, why tournaments such as these don't have them is beyond belief.

Even if bth arent playing top standard snooker thus far, it's still much better than having two 40+ year olds playing like that like we've seen this season many times.

Good young talents like these 2 is what we need, refreshing.

Can't see any similarity other than the fact they both have dark hair.
Anyway, "Donald Scottson" seems to be a good safety player from what I've seen so far.

Looking very good for the Scot,Scott!. :-)


4-0,or even if it had of ended up 3-1 goin into the MSI,both would o been definately a fair result so far,but as it is,it,s 4-0.


Yuelong was a bit unlunky a few times when he played cannons,unlucky that they did,nt t develop anything into a pottable position,although he did have a tad luck especially in the 4th frame,where he got outta snookers or played a sloppy safety and did,nt leave anything,or anything easy on.


The chances he did have,he blew em,Scott also blew a good few,but he,s without a doubt the better player,made way more of his chances.





COMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMME ON SCOTT,just 1 more frame laddie!. <ok>
