Yes. Carter I think said some nasty words about Trump back then after beating him in a decider. Like "Now he knows what it feels like when you have a scar" and stuff like that.

Please God it's Trump. Has the makings of an exciting match up. If its Bazza i think i'll only dip in and out of the final.

I think his name needs to be changed to Curryfan.


Wasn't even anything special. Ordered a Tikka Massala, tasted more like a Korma.

And later on after that Ruby he'll be known as Shithitsthefan.

Didn't sound like I missed much.

So, no play until tomorrow. ITV tournaments are weird.

On the plus side, I'll be able to get most of the West Brom game out of the way before the match starts.

Could it be...Ryansday...?


No, that Day only occurs twice every twenty years.


Once in a minute, twice in a moment but never in a thousand years....

He used to be quite good. Not a top dog, but good enough to make up the top 32.


He had an hereditary medical condition that badly affected his ability to play. Eventually dropped off the tour.

Incredible talent. A bit like Lisowski nowadays... both fail at the decisive moments v the top players.

That statement got very near a 10 year ban from Snooker Island.


Shootout isnt and never will be a ranking event no matter what Barry Hearn or anyone else says.

Unfortunately it is a ranking event. It carries ranking points.

I don't like it any more than you do, and have refused to watch it since it became a ranking event. I even sent World Snooker an e-mail telling them this.

Sadly, it's not up to me. Despite it being the worst and most unfair decision in the history of sport, it is a ranking event.
