You’d think he hadn’t, the way some people were worrying.

Definitely. Bingham is second favourite.


Can they meet in the final?

I was about to say it sounds good, then I remembered Cardiff.

Hossein Vafaei is still my dark horse for the final, but I am not sure if he can handle televised matches. Tomorrow's match against Brecel will be a good test for him.

He had a few televised matches in that tournament he went deep in where he won a bunch of matches 5-4. Was really impressed with his play.

Bingham’s transformation from journeyman to world champ to consistent tournament contender right now is really quite something, when you think about that


Bingham. :hatoff:


Don't think I've ever seen that. I wasn't following the tour all that closely around that time. I was holed up in my studio making tunes.

ha. That relationship soured...

I can’t warm to Bingham. I respect his hard work and achievements but he seems difficult and bald
