    :laughing: I'm more disappointed Barry Pinches didn't make it. I think Hendry beat him in the qualifiers...

    Hoping Ronnie destroys that cunt Ebdon in the first round...

    Is Rory McLeod in this year's championship? Best beard in sport (aside from maybe Brett Keisel).

    I can't watch it from over here, it's not broadcast on any US channel but it's still usually blocked on the BBC website online. I don't get it.

    Obviously I can stream it dodgily, I know that, but it's not quite the same. Somehow feels wrong with snooker.

    Also, in before Sable.

    I doubt it, i think without even knowing anything about him and just seeing a photo of his face people will still think he's a cunt... Just one of them

    Oh dear.

    http://asia.eurosport.com/snooker/allen-in-china-cheat-storm_sto3244112/story.shtml

    "I thought the big turning point of the match was at 5-4," said Allen in an astonishing outburst at his post-match press conference in Sheffield's Crucible Theatre. "He was in among the balls and Paul Collier missed a blatant push (shot). It was quite obvious to me... anyone at home could probably see that."

    "It seems to be a bit of trait for the Chinese players. There's been a few instances in the past...fouls...and blatant cheating going on. It needs to be corrected because he (Cao) is a good enough player. He doesn't have to do that."

    Plebdon has gone vegan and is playing better than he has in years (Just won the china open)

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/bendirs/2012/04/beware_the_vegan.html

    Man-mountain Lee is in good form.

    I saw Hendry destroy jimmy White in the legends tour at the crucible last week and was looking pretty good against Bingham. Whether or not he has the stamina and can maintain concentration for 2 weeks is debatable.

    I reckon the rise of Trump has given ronnie a new lease of life.

    My mates housemate just knocked out Gould.

    Lots of players playing well.

    lols for Mark Allen

    Agreed /\

    When he did that scam-betting thing it brought the sport into disrepute. Ugly business.

    He'd make a good bond villain too. Ding is the big boss and the other chinese players are his henchmen, their mission is to get the world champs moved to china. Williams and Allen are in on it!

    Isit!?!?!

    Nice one, not looked at the rankings as there's been no snooker on TV for a while.

    Code:
    1.	1	5	Mark Selby	England	79 925
    2.	3	1	Judd Trump	England	66 325
    3.	5	3	Neil Robertson	Australia	64 540
    4.	2	82	Mark J Williams	Wales	63 560
    5.	4	37	Shaun Murphy	England	63 285
    6.	6	13	John Higgins	Scotland	61 320
    7.	8	8	Stephen Maguire	Scotland	58 800
    8.	12	14	Stephen Lee	England	57 950
    9.	9	7	Graeme Dott	Scotland	56 045
    10.	7	20	Ding Junhui	China	54 740
    11.	10	29	Mark Allen	Northern Ireland	53 665
    12.	11	10	Martin Gould	England	49 690
    13.	14	2	Ronnie O'Sullivan	England	48 060
    14.	15	17	Matthew Stevens	Wales	47 510
    15.	18	15	Ricky Walden	England	46 945
    16.	16	40	Stuart Bingham	England	46 350
    
    Massive resurgence for Mark Williams. Nice one. But I'm sure I read (from Ronnie) that there's so many points available from minor tournaments that the points system is a bit skewed, the top players can't be arsed with all the smaller events. Or maybe it's just Ronnie lol.



    :ana:

    Brilliant. Hadn't seen the latest score, I saw it when Hendry was winning 5-3 or something.

    FUCK YOU HIGGINS, FUCK YOU.
