Also did anyone catch the BBC documentary on Ding and the rise of Chinese snooker in general. Amazing levels of commitment and numbers playing the game. Next 10 years they'll be the world force


Then they'll have to dominate it for the next 80 years to be on a par with Britain :D

Enjoyed the Selby Ding SF.

Not sure I'm looking forward to the final so much though

Selby choosing the worst possible time to start playing like an average club player.

I have no preference on either of these two as I feel no joy in the thought of them winning.
Having said that, as bad as it seems, it's nice to see Selby getting his arse kicked at the moment. Miserable twat.
I sound like my Dad talking about Steve Davis in the 80's.
If Higgins continues with a healthy lead I might look to lump on Selby coming back and doing it.
Or I might just cook a massive roast dinner tomorrow and get pissed without caring either way... :thup:

They must have swapped form for those two sessions.

Selby will still win this. From 4-10 he won the last three frames last night and 7-10 is a helluva lot healthier than 4-10 and Selby will fancy his chances of retaining his title.

Kind of agree but if he takes as long to get going as he did yesterday then he's toast.

Jesus Christ Mark Selby cracks a smile as Higgins plays the white in the middle pocket on 3 identical missed shots from being snookered.
Would like Higgins to win this but sadly theres only 1 winner from here.

Higgins will be covering his risk of losing the final by getting on Bet365 in the interval.

Not a fan of either finalist but credit where credit is due, that was a phenomenal session from Selby. He has now won 9 of the last 10 frames and has to be a warm favourite going into evening session.

Both unlikeable for me.
Selby will cruise this tonight I reckon.

And now it's the rotund one making a fightback to get within one frame of Selby. In the 32nd frame and we're on a re-rack - this is going to go on all night.

Give the Wizard his due, he is a ****ing scrapper. Loses 12 out of 14 and still not beaten mentally.

If Spitting Image was still on , I doubt they'd even bother making one of him, due to nobody knowing who he is.

Needs to get on Celebrity Love Island or something.
