Just thought I would mention, one of our lads is competing this year. I drink with him in our local.
Phil Nixon won his first round against the 7th seed and is now playing Martin Atkins in the second round. Another hard game, wish him luck everyone as Phil is the rank outsider in this tournament.
He actually made the seni-final a long time ago but he had personal problems at home (the poor blokes house burned down while he was playing the quarter finals and that messed his head up).
He is getting on now but he still has the ability, lets hope he can do something special this year!!
