Those things really are awful.

I know it must be hard to come up with different features all the time, and some things will always work better than others. But that one really is bad. Credit to them for trying to talk about the snooker in depth, I guess. But do you really need them to be writing random words on a chalkboard when talking technically about a player?

At least that Bigheads on they did, with the cardboard heads, was meant to be a bit whimsical and silly. Not adding a chalkboard what's supposed to be sensible analysis.

Naaa it isn't usually announced till after the final of the current event so we won't find out till Sunday night like 11pm ish. I assume Judd Trump will play first on Monday evening though but I could be wrong.

Not until the Welsh is done.


Kind of makes sense not to have somebody playing Monday night, if they were in the final in Llandudno late on Sunday.

As far as I'm aware the player that is number 1 on the 1 year list usually plays first in the Players championship and World Grand Prix. I may be wrong with that but I swear that was the case.

i think only the top three seeds (trump, o'sullivan, and zhang) are set in stone at the moment.


Correct. The other 13 are still to be determined.

Ah yeah, that's a point.

I'm assuming that's what Judder meant about Judd probably being first up, as well.
