I didn't post much yesterday, as I was Sky Plussing the games and on result avoidance.

I agree though. It's sad.

There weren't even any crowds in for the Ding game yesterday.

TTWITTER ATTACK(S)

Neal Foulds‏ @fouldsy147
Kyren Wilson’s maximum break just now seemed to be greeted with zero applause. Either the audience are hard to please or there isn’t one.

They only turned up for Ronnie lol.

I agree this looks embarrassing though. Surely they could give the tickets away for free to local clubs and schools? What have they got to lose?

Same old China.


Twitter loves a good moan.


Got a point though.

Having no crowds at a major is embarrassing. Even for a pretend major like the International Championship.

Move it to Germany. They'd turn up.


Germany has different problems though. No local sponsors willing to back the event.

OPPO is the world's 4th best selling smartphone brand and the number 1 in China. Its parent company BBK Electronics also has the OnePlus and Vivo brands and is the 2nd largest smartphone manufacturer in the world.

I heard that the CEO got married last week. The reception was terrible.

Happy halloween everyone!

Neil really shouldn't be 3-0 down to Selt and Ronnie and Ding going out early is a shame.


That was odd, weren't it?

The only Halloween movie not to feature Michael Myers.
