Why on earth they CAN'T JUST GIVE TICKETS AWAY FREE OR A COMPETITION OR LOWER THE PRICES OR SOMETHING don't the Chinese have a huge ethos about saving face? And yet they'll run a tournament that's beamed around the world with one man and his phone in the front row. I know this is tired old ground I just can't beleive Hearn doesn't do something about it. I'm sure he's tried.

Neil Robertson @nr147 Very fortunate having played in front of packed crowds every match for the last 3 months. This week the players get to feel like footballers being forced to play behind closed doors. I love China but the players hate the crowd/ticket price situation that prevents people watching

He's playing great. Potted some great ones and plays an attacking game.


A year ago, I'd have been convinced he'd Selbied, even if the match went close.

Now, not so sure.

On their day, most tour players can play high-quality stuff. The difference is often consistency.

It's quite possible he'll play rubbish next match.

He hasn't won this one yet.
