Had a cracking day there yesterday afternoon and evening and saw loads of the top players. Even the McGill v Donaldson match was enjoyable even though it lasted over three-and-a-half hours!

It was a bit surreal waiting to go into the arena as quite a few players and referees walked right past us either going to the toilet or preparing for their match. Ronnie even swept right past us with a camera crew!

Good stuff York Barbican was like that when I went last year. How much were tickets?

We were fortunate to get these for free as the sponsors were giving away some on Twitter a few weeks ago, but I think they were about £15 for the day. Not sure about individual sessions though.

It was just great to have the Scottish Open back in Scotland more than anything else!

Fifteen quid for the day is an absolute bargain, especially when you are guaranteed to see the big names given the format

Absolutely, it was a nice bonus to get free tickets but I would have gone anyway at that price.

I live in Glasgow so used to go three or four times in the week when it was held here but I'll only manage to get to Edinburgh once this week as I've ran out of annual leave. Will hopefully go more next year.
