Less coverage on bbc 2 due to the schools programmes. Coverage starts at 3 on Monday.

I don't think we can complain too much about that as they are stepping in for the government

Dreamboat confirms on Twitter that he doesn’t (yet at least) have symptoms. Good news.

It’s certainly possible, Dubai is on the coast.

Makes no sense to me. Seedings for The Masters should be done after the last ranking event took place, this year it was the WGP, last few years was the Scottish Open.

I guess this is a move by the BBC so they can show the random draw for The Masters live.

Also sad to hear Lisowski and Trump have tested positive, but health comes first so I hope both will be allright.

Iplayer/sports website provably but red button looks like it has educational fare all afternoon. Back to normal for the evening session.

Although what better education than watching Ronnie on the afternoon he plays? Could be PE lesson for the kids.

When I did GCSE's back in 1993 they made PE a mandatory subject choice, and you had to choose 5 sports. I was allowed to choose snooker, after some discussion, and was allowed to go down to Harrogate Leisure center on Tuesday afternoons and play!

I came from a tiny village primary school, with 14 pupils... at my time of leaving for secondary school I was the only kid of that age. I was literally a king of that tiny school for a year!

I seem to remember we played Rounders a few times and that was about it sportwise.

That explains why you’re constantly lording it over us.

By the second year I'd found my feet and was kissing the 3rd hottest girl in our year behind the bike sheds. It all fell apart again though a couple of years later when puberty hit. Lolz
