World Snooker Championship 2020
The draw was this morning. Some tasty looking first round matches. Ronnie O'Sullivan v Thepchaiya Un-Nooh looks like the stand out and could be a great match as they are the two fastest players on the tour, so no farting around there.

Draw in full

Judd Trump (1) v Tom Ford
Yan Bingtao (16) v Elliot Slessor
Stephen Maguire (9) v Martin Gould
Kyren Wilson (8) v Anthony Hamilton
John Higgins (5) v Matthew Stevens
David Gilbert (12) v Kurt Maflin
Jack Lisowski (13) v Anthony McGill
Mark Allen (4) v Jamie Clarke
Mark Williams (3) v Alan McManus
Stuart Bingham (14) v Ashley Carty
Ding Junhui (11) v Mark King
Ronnie O'Sullivan (6) v Thepchaiya Un-Nooh
Mark Selby (7) v Jordan Brown
Shaun Murphy (10) v Noppon Saengkham
Barry Hawkins (15) v Alexander Ursenbacher
Neil Robertson (2) v Liang Wenbo

Will Judd Trump break the first-time defending champion Crucible curse and win again? Trump has to be a big favourite as his form this year has been outstanding, but Mark Allen is my tip for a flutter with some value. Neil Robertson also can't be ruled out.

The action starts on Friday morning at the Crucible Theatre, Sheffield, with limited spectators.

Re: World Snooker Championship 2020

i would agree on recent ones, but this year's has been very good in fairness. Great game with Selby at the moment looking like it will go to the final frame

Alex Higgins will have to rise from the grave for me to take an.interest in this tournament . Modern day snooker is shit .

Re: World Snooker Championship 2020
It depends if it's by a specific score like Lee was doing. He had to lose a few 5-1 or something but he still has to win a frame! I think another was 10-4, no guarantee you're gonna win 4.

Re: World Snooker Championship 2020
Snooker has got to be the easiest of all sports to match fix and throw, yet so many morons have been caught red handed over the years.

Re: World Snooker Championship 2020
I'm not keen on the potato headed jock, but you can hardly compare what he didn't actually do ( he made noises like he was interested) compared with actual fixing of matches in exchange for cash. I believe that Aussie helmet Hann also got a lengthy ban for being caught actually match fixing.

Higgins didn't actually do anything but sounded like he might - either for dodgy reasons or because he was in a slightly sticky spot and just said what he needed to to get out of there ( which I believe was his defence).

Higgins was still reasonably successful and didn't stand to make as much money fixing as he would getting to the latter stages of tournaments by taking the risk anyway. It was all quite odd. Lee and especially Hann were almost always washed up players.

Re: World Snooker Championship 2020
Yeah, it was a joke that Higgins got something stupid like a six month ban, which was effectively a slap of wrist compared to piggie boy Stephen Lee's 10 year ban, or whatever it was.

I always want whomever the match fixing jock cheat is playing to win since his ban.

Agree, even if he was acquitted, he was as dodgy as the other fat one.

Re: World Snooker Championship 2020
It was great to wake up to read that the match fixing jock cheat got knocked out by NORWAY'S Kurt Maflin. Guarantees a qualifier in the Semi Finals, which blows the draw wide open.

Re: World Snooker Championship 2020
Shame to see a 147 at the crucible in front of no fans. Maflin is a weird one. Knocking about for years but has proper clicked here. Doubt he will win it, but empty seats probably suits him better.

Enjoyed Maflin, good game that.

Re: World Snooker Championship 2020
Let's play Ronnie O'Sullivan cliché bingorama:

He's the most natural talent to have ever picked up a cue. He is weally weally entertaining to watch! His turbo mince 147 was one of the best sporting fings ever ever!

****CLICHÉ JACKPOT****

Re: World Snooker Championship 2020
for dedication and consistency, I don't think anyone will match hendry but I was just talking about natural talent, vexed brought up the best ever argument. In recent years I've listened a lot to steve davis who does a music show on pheonix fm, in a recent interview he said he was a music addict as a kid/teenager but stopped listening to music completely during his glory years as he found it a distraction, not even during practice

Totally agree, a thing of absolute beauty.

Hendry probably was the best ever as it stands, as a competitor. I don't think the game is any different, probably lower standards in fact since the peak of quality with Hendry, Higgins, Williams, O'sullivan etc of the 90s.

Granted he was a massive reasoning behind that evolution with one visit snooker.

rochesterjohn 9:17 Thu Aug 6
Re: World Snooker Championship 2020
By that reckoning Joe Davis is the best ever surely...
The game has evolved so much from Hendry’s day, no way he’d win 7 in today’s world.

Vexed 5:34 Thu Aug 6
Re: World Snooker Championship 2020
7 world champs to 5. Seems pretty much settled that Hendry is he best ever.

Takashi Miike 4:36 Thu Aug 6
Re: World Snooker Championship 2020
mace, the video's on youtube, have a look at the time. hendry admits himself that o'sullivan has/had more talent, so stop talking bollocks

White Pony 4:35 Thu Aug 6
Re: World Snooker Championship 2020
I think Ronnie is a total prick but he’s the most entertaining player to watch by quite a long distance, sadly.

Also, I don’t think most fans give a fuck about someone’s action and Murphy is a weird cunt.

Vexed 4:32 Thu Aug 6
Re: World Snooker Championship 2020
Hendry is the greatest player ever.
