    Higgins made a real match of it. Oldest combined ages in the final ever I believe, two guys with some bottle. The potting accuracy for both of them was over 90% at one stage towards the end. Great final.

    Better off out of it. I love Ronnie but I couldn't be looking at much more of him slumping in the seat and playing shots he shouldn't be. Thought he'd grown out of most of this nonsense

    Ronnie looked half asleep today.

    Fair play to James Cahill - an amateur with 12 century breaks to his name in the pro game. Knocked Irishman Michael Judge out in the final qualifier to make the crucible. Has a few big scalps to his name - knocked Selby out of the UK last year too.

    Would have put the the mortgages on Robertson winning it out. He'll feel he left this being Shirley

    Yeah, when I saw he was only 66 yesterday I was surprised, the baldness made him look older than he was. Poor fella lost everything due to gambling addiction too, there was an go fund me page set up for his treatment. Very well liked on the circuit. RIP Willie.

    I’m going to throw a curve ball out there and say back AGAINST Ronnie in the first room. I read a interview with him during the week and he said he doesn’t want to be there but “has” to be for reasons he wouldn’t give.

    He also said of all the players he would like to lose to, this Thai guy he is playing he would like to lose to him.

    Take what you want from that, but It would be a cheeky bet. 7-2 Nooh is. Could be worth a few pound .

    Boris come out now and said from the weekend theres NO crowds at previously Ok'd pilot events.
    Even the commentators seem a bit lost as to what that means for the sessions after the ones currently in play with limited crowds.

    Anthony Hamiliton is going to be pisssssssed.
    He qualified for the tv stages (and the money stages obviously) but pulled out because they were letting crowds in

    Hope you didn’t put too much on it. He’s on fire. 3-0 up inside 30 mins. Reckon be 10-2 and that’s being generous to his opponent

    Probably lucky enough to win the last one but he’s so good to watch.

    7-1 or 8-0 at the end of the session I’d say.

    I didn’t thank fuck. I watched the first two days and then didn’t get a chance to see any today. I think the announcement on Thursday might just have cheered Ronnie up .
