I am interested even though the proper snooker is much superior. Think I fancy this more than shoot-out. Any streams though? bet365 supposedly planned to cover some matches, but nothing as of yet...

Nice preview, thecueview!

EDIT: Ah, here comes Walden on b365 now.

I'd love to see Darren do a Mountjoy. Where's Frank Callan when you need him?

I remember watching some of the Six Reds on Eurosport a few years back, and vaguely enjoying it. But it tends to be closer to pool, with more of a focus on potting. Not real snooker, but alright enough to dip in and out of.

Yeah, and thanks again Cueview. :hatoff:

I see what you mean! I'm going to post here then, I'm sure some nice moderator will merge the threads!

Matt Selt made a 'maximum' of 75 today in one of his group games...I've no idea how regular that occurrence is in 6 reds snooker?

I'm interested, Theppy is the defending champ :D Unfortunately I won't have time to watch much, and it's again not on Eurosport.
Not many top players entered, but it makes it more interesting, always wanted to see Brecel play this and there are lots of young amateurs too.
Also there is a Suchakree Poomjaeng, is that just Dechawat or his brother?

My bad Motorhead. I couldn't find the relevant section to put it in, and I didn't see the 'Other Events' tab at the bottom of the 2016/2017 events.

My apologies.

Let´s see if gritty yet classy glasgowian Stephen Maguire can take it this time (again)!!

Jacks are just too much for Mags.

Live score is a pain for this event. Only final results, but snooker.org had live updates for matches that started at 7:30, yet for those at 10:00, nothing yet.

I get confused with round robins I confess! Also, I hope you aren't upset with me for being anti social. Rough times and The Avalanches Wildflowers in kinda rubbish. I am really poopie as of late.

Ding Junhui 6-3 Ryan Day
Ding playing himself into form at just the right time?

Pankaj Advani 6-4 Yuan Sijun
It's a snooker 'crime' that Advani isn't on the Tour - but it's by choice, rather than any lack of ability.

Michael White 1-6 Michael Holt
Holt is perhaps going under-the-radar here, but he's done well at this event in the past.

Stuart Bingham 6-1 Dominic Dale
Bingham has been in two semis and the final of this before...so, no surprise to see him progressing.

Akani Songsermsawad 6-1 Joe Perry
Impressive demolition - beating 'The Gentleman' 6-1 demands respect!

Stephen Maguire 6-2 Thepchaiya Un-Nooh
Maguire comprehensively de-thrones the champion!

Ricky Walden 5-6 Luca Brecel
Brilliant win for Brecel - Walden is a proven beast at this format...

Noppon Saengkham 5-6 Liang Wenbo
The main talking-point here was Noppon Saengkham's missed black for a rare (unprecedented?) break of 79!
A break in excess of the 'maximum' has only been accomplished once in (standard) professional snooker - this would have been the 6-red equivalent! Gutting!
If Noppon had potted it, he would have been rewarded with a cash sum more than 3 times what Mark Selby pocketed for winning the most recent ranking event!
Those Thai players and their missed final blacks! <laugh>

Quarter-finals:

Ding Junhui v Liang Wenbo
An all-China clash! Liang Wenbo was runner-up in this last season. But it would be foolish to even try to pick a favourite in this match!

Pankaj Advani v Michael Holt
This is Holt's 3rd time at this stage - and he's reached the semis previously - his experience could be key...

Stuart Bingham v Akani Songsermsawad
The under-rated Bingham has twice been a semi-finalist at this format, and has also made the final before. Must be the favourite to end the run of the young Thai player, who only turns 21 on the day of the Final!

Stephen Maguire v Luca Brecel
Despite being 'written-off' earlier in the thread, 'Mags' is quietly going about his business, and must have a great chance of regaining the title he won the season before last. That said, Luca's not in the last 8 to just make-up-the-numbers!

Should be a terrific day tomorrow with the quarter-finals followed by the semi-finals (both first to 7).
The Final is on Saturday. (first to 8).

ace write ups Poolboy thanks!

What's that about a bonus for the 79? They actually have a bonus for a free-ball + maxi break?
