Cool UK Open Snooker

Ronnie, absolute phenomenon.

Went up another gear in that final session. A pleasure to watch him in good form let alone top form. Masters up next, easy travel for him and itís a great comp to go and watch a session. Bit of a trek up the hill from Wood Green tube station but well worth it.

Annihilated that final session. Shame for Murphy.

Oh wait, no its not.

Murphy is a red tbf.

(but also a god botherer, which does rather cancel that out unfortunately)

Unless god botherers are preachy like the JWs and the keener muzzersthen itís not a problem. Top lad away from the table from what Iíve been told.

The quality of the snooker is abysmal these days and the line ups are almost the same as they were 15-20 years ago does anyone under the age of 30 even play snooker these days?

The standard is higher than its ever been. Probably lacks the characters off the good old days

It's really not mate.

It's just bereft of personalities.

Edit: sorry, what Switchers said..

Ronnie and Mark Selby are completely dominant in the triple crown events (won the last six between them) but there are plenty of other good players about. You had two eras of Davis and Hendry dominance and nobody has quite managed that since, with Ronnie's wins spanning 24 years.
