The ranking points system does needs to be re-evaluated. The money for the Worlds is just so heavy compared to other events. Someone could lost every game all season and just reach the last 32 here and they'd possibly have more ranking points than someone who has won a dozen games.

17-17 in the decider on the black winner gets £500,000 loser gets £200,000 its obserd in ranking terms that much difference to a player ranking position.

the difference there is more than winning the UK and Players Championship Ronnies 2 ranking success this season.

And winning the China Open is worth 15,000 more points than winning 3 Home Nations events. Silly.

Bagley scoffs at Ronnie's recent achievement, and will make 1000 centuries in just this tournament.

He'd get done for irregular betting patterns.

This has been looking very good so far isnt it? We have a lot more in form players this year than last season.

You have 4-5 players who look in great shape atm and then another 4-5 who either seem to come back to form or who are naturally a contender to win for different reasons. Because of experience, longer format and stuff like that.

Could be a very high standard WC. Certainly more high standard than last year.

My first time walking in there, I was one of the first in the queue and the place was before me, empty; felt like I was walking into this place cut off from the rest of the world. Almost a mystical feeling.

I can't tell you what exactly aura is, but the Crucible has it.
