Snooker thread

Jimmy beats Bingham 4 2. Good win.
bingham just gets bigger everytime you see him.

Bigger and more boring to watch, he deserved to get beat, Jimmy was out of sorts and Bingham was his usual negative self, I think his success is down to ripping the life out of opponents.
Had the chance to play a shot to nothing with two reds left on in the 5th frame but went for his usual routine of trying to snooker, then fucked up an easier chance to let Jimmy in.

Only caught the end of it but had heard similar.
One thing that surprised me was the state of the table. There were massive chalk marks all over it from whatever chalk Jimmy was using (century apparently)
It looked like it hadn’t been cleaned in weeks!
By all accounts this was pissing Bingham off big time. Did you notice anything from him?

Jimmy hits the ball low a lot so that's why the chalk marks were all over, didn't have the sound on but the camera showed them, getting pissed off is one thing but he plays his shots far too often like it's a 1 frame match.
Yes there's the percentages but his game is so negative at times, Jimmy was awful for most of the game, I did look at Bingham to win at 2-2 for that reason but the odds were really poor, I'm pleased about that.

Possibly a confidence thing with Bingham as he's had a bad couple of years barring his Masters win. He's always been a fluent break builder. It was only 2 weeks ago he missed the 15th red two frames on the trot going for a maxi. He done an interview last week saying that he had to speak with his wife and manager prior to travelling to M.K as he just didn't want to play. He's obviously not in too good a place at the moment

He’s using a new cue too apparently

All the top players are great break builders, it's when you get into a bit of a scrap, even his potting of a last red can have a negative element to it.
Jimmy was there for the taking, he seemed to be over thinking instead of just getting on with it.

Everyone gets a bit sick at some point, snooker players are no different but it pays the bills.

I used to play snooker with a mate who'd had more wood than a 70's pornstar, he'd play well with a new cue, play shit the next time and buy another.
It was quite amusing when there were no tables available so we had a few games of pool, he missed an easy shot leaving me to clean up and said that if he'd had his pool cue he'd have potted it.

I'd not even took my cue out of the case, used one of the club ones and 7 balled him with my first visit.
One of the last times we played he was playing really well, he said he had a 8.5mm tip on, when we finished I mentioned how well he had played and that the tip might be the factor, he said, 'Well it's a new cue as well'. :lol:

Oh right. Just presumed with the amount of matches left they wouldn’t get to finish. Didn’t realise the final was best of 7 too. That’s a bit shit!
Aye its a weird format every match in the whole tournament is best of 7. They're only using 4 tables in the ballroom of the stadium as the darts is in the arena. The first round didn't finish until day 4 then qf, sf and final all today

Love watching Trump with his head down among the balls.
An obvious ooooeeeerrrrrr matronnnnn
..

trump 2-0 Lisowski after 25 mins
...

trump 3-0 lisowski. Lisowski had a big chance missed a straightforward pink to the middle and trump cleared up

this will probably be trumps fifth ranking title of the season. He holds the record of six last season.
..

over with a ton, 4-0
..

trump gets £50 grand for winning this and a bonus of £150 grand for winning the bet victor series
