I can´t see Ding or Ali Carter to be in form here.

Ronnie has an easy starter against Sam Baird. Which is most likely not the ideal preparation to him, and I predict later he will be in troubles.

Robertson, obviously Selby, and I would say Murphy the favourites. John Higgins can be impressive also. Stevens has an uphill struggle, a straight against a solid scorer Mark Allen.

Mate, the start of this tournmanent just can't come soon enough.

I had to attend that wedding when the Riga tournament was on. Saw none of it. And the World Cup is just marmite.

Be good so see some proper snooker on again. The Crucible seems like a life time ago.

Snooker "Fan" ;-)

I tried to watch some of the different cue sports in the world games, don't know if it was my internet or trying to watch at the wrong time but I could never get anything to work.

A much of this game is about by who you would like to get destroyed. Like I pointed out, Ronnie has a relatively easy start. Even when Sam Baird knocked out Judd Trump. But that´s a far cry of having an ideal preparation to Ronnie. For the latter stages of the tournament.

Stuart Bingham can also do some damage here. He has a potential banana skin against somehow impressive Yan Bingtao.

Every player do get destroyed at some point. But if having a healthy respect against your opponent who do destroy you, well that´s a educative and a profitable experience and situation then. Getting destroyed means that you see no escape route anymore. Absolutely no escape route available anymore. The most important thing is that you don´t cooperate anyway or at all with the players who are not going to make any sense. If needing to get destroyed, get destroyed by the someone who you do respect as a person.

It´s all about the power. Every game or sport essentially is about having the power. What is physically possible and how likely is that someone can show up.

No player need to or should to reveal their actual weapons. Don´t be a daft if someone is asking too many questions from you. You can always chicken out if feeling that´s the right decision.

Like Reanne Evans has relatively quickly taken the complete control. But even she will get destroyed if playing tournaments like this.

I feel I only have a very poor options left anymore analysing tournaments like these. I have been able to deny the odds earlier, and I may have to do it again if fancing to keep on posting here anymore. But that was already a 15 years ago. I may need to hit the streets again. Permanently. But I am up for even that challenge because I am an inventive enough and I I wear my heart on my sleeve. I really feel I only have the really poor options left anymore. That´s how professional the game is these days. It´s like we would be back in the 80s, and a seemingly rampant Steve Davis running the show. In the 90s Stephen Hendry actually was a much more unpredictable. He just had a more flair than what Steve had. But nothing out of this is or would be something that we would see as a problem when it is a year 2040.

RUSSIA!

Surprising results already! Robbo and Bingham already out.

Well well, a funny old game. It finally starts to be settled to Snookerfan.

Because no-one want´s to always see the big boys to deliver. And nothing for the rest of the bunch.

Just out of the curiosity, but I would like to see who would get better after a long distance match; the best and By far the most solid 70-80 break scorer of the world Joe Perry, or the free scoring Judd Trump. Not that much given it would be honest-Joe.

Come On Ali!! 1-1 currently, and Ali on the table to score. Mehta can´t do much or can he. Do it.
Shaun is having a tough match against Ken, but seems Shaun is going to win. Ken just won´t have a time to get it all working. Do it also. Shaun leading 1-0, a tough second frame which seems Ken is going to have.

I've taped this afternoon's play anyway. Turned Twitter off.


That wasn't the televised match.
