Really strange decision putting Ding v Luca in the morning and Lilley v Murphy at 9pm

The 10am matches are at 5pm here in China (until the clocks change, when the time difference will be 8 hours instead of 7). 10am-4pm is the best time for fans in China to watch weekday matches. Most of us are in bed for the UK evening session.

yea that makes sense but im still confused having Murphy v Lilley as TV Match Bingham v Woollaston, Gary Wilson v Ricky Walden would be better than that one.


World Snooker are clueless.

Yes, best of 7s are a lottery, anything can happen.

Selbo seems to have a very easy draw, so he might go deep.

A quickfire 80 break puts Ding 2-0 up. Looking good this morning.

Is his putting his chalk on the cushion between every shot a way of keeping a rhythm or playing in a relaxed manner as if he was in a club?

Lack of waistcoat is my guess.

He's the only one I've seen do it regularly this week. Maybe his trouser pockets aren't up to much.

Yeah I’ve seen a couple with the old chalk pouch as well. I’m guessing some players avoid using their trouser pockets; I’ve got a few pairs of jeans with big holes in the back pocket from putting my chalk in there. If it does that to denim it probably wouldn’t take long to ruin a pair of trousers!

Rory dragging Joe down to his speed. Joe is 26 secs for the season so far. Probably knocked him out of his normal rhythm.
