And only one commentator in Fouldsy. I actually preferred this I think to a Phil Yates hype-man he's usually teamed with, bit more quiet between the shots.
Saving the best quality productions, for those events stuck on the Player.
I prefer Foulds to Yates, as well. Foulds obviously knows a lot, but presents what he says in a more informal, easy to listen to style. He speaks with a way that you know that he knows his stuff, without having to exaggerate his knowledge. You feel you could easily have a conversation about snooker with him.
Yates has to say everything like he's the voice over guy on a big budget movie trailer. "Shaun. Murphy. Walks. To The Table. He. Looks Down. As he.... Attempts. To Break Off."
Also, as commendable as Yates' knowledge of the game is, especialy when compared to the BBC guys, it doesn't mean he has to lecture you on stats about every facet of the game. "Since. Nineteen. Eighty. Seven. There. Have Been. Three. Left. Handed Players. Who. Have. Made. A Break. Of. Above. 50. When. Their. Opponent. Has Already. Made. A. Break. Of. 30. Or. Higher. There. Is A. 46.7% chance. That. This Wouldn't. In Fact. Happen. Quite Extraordinary."
