    all Internet these days I suppose

    In fairness the sport does not have the characters it used to have either

    Thankfully we'll have Alan McManus back on comms. Brilliant last year.
    Much better than listening to Stephen bloody hendry
     
  4. Always find the studio chat a bit cringeworthy on eurosport. Dont think Jimmy White is the most natural. Neal Foulds tends to be a good listen

    yeah, bbc better for studio stuff, eurosport better for commentary, except when that absolute clown Phil Yates is there with his verbal diarrhoea

    Will be there as usual on the first Friday. Looking at the draw I think it could be Ronnie again on our table if he comes through his opening round match. Been going most years since 2001 and always have a cracking day out.

    Can make a case for quite a few potential winners but think Robertson, Trump and Kyren Wilson will take some beating this year.

    The qualifiers for this started on Wednesday.

    Is there a YouTube channel showing coverage of this.

    I remember watching one last year. They were covering the most interesting/competitive match then jumping table if another match gets interesting.

    Backed Mark Allen to win it. £2 on at 18/1.

    There's similar coverage of the last round this year with commentary by Rob Walker and Neil Foulds.
     
  11. Eurosport player but you need to subscribe iirc
     
  12. Jimmy White has been staying at the hotel where the Mrs works in Darlo. Been practising at a local club, I thought he was long retired.

    Playing in the new World Seniors Tour, looks like a nice little earner for a few of the oldies.
