Sunday 19th ~ Wednesday 22nd of August at the Guild Hall, Preston

Luca Brecel won his first ranking title at the China Championship in 2017 beating Shaun Murphy 10-5 in the final and by doing establishing himself in the top 16 but he has strougled to live up to this win so far.

He will be top seed and avoid the minefield of Preston as will World Champion Mark Williams but World no 1 and 3 times World Champion Mark Selby will be there and playing veteran Jimmy White for a place in the main draw.

Who will be their place on the plane?

It's certainly not that he's young. The game needs more young players coming through.

I think it's the fact that he shaves his head, but not his beard.

If you can't be bothered to shave, that's one thing. But it seems odd to be lazy about shaving your chin, but enthusiastic when it comes to shaving your head.

For me, it's a number of reasons why I can't warm to him no matter how hard I try. The following things about him irritate me:

- The tattoos
- 'Ghetto' dress style
- Ric Flair strut around the table like he owns the place
- Laissez-faire attitude
- Careless shot selections and execution
- His Belgian nationality

This is the big one, obviously.

Could have been worse, I suppose. He might have been Pakistani or Nigerian.

What are your thoughts on his nationality? :chin:

I have no opinion on that, other than the fact that it might be nice to see more players from outside of the UK and China competing in the top 16.

To be fair, Cloud was just having a bit of fun with Holden if I read it correctly. Unless Cloud tells us different, I certainly did not think it was racism.

I understand the job of moderator must be very difficult and take a lot of time, but on this occasion I think Wildey has good intentions, but misunderstood.

I assumed he was joking too.

Still, it's always nice to see Wildey laying a verbal smackdown.

A Nagasaki-scale overreaction.

It cannot be racism since Belgian is not a race.

And yes, I was joking. I absolutely detest the Belgians, but I most certainly do not hate them.
