    World Snooker Championships 2011 official thread

    Anybody else going to see this?

    I love snooker, hope Ronnie doesn't decide to throw his toys out of the pram and we see a good showing.

    Could this be Ding's year?

    Just managed to get 2/1 accumulator on snooker:

    Mark Williams @ 1/14
    Allister Carter @ 1/1000
    Shaun Murphy @ 1/1000
    Ding Junhui @ 1/1000
    Joe Perry @ EVS

    All are certainties - apart from Perry.

    Anyone watching that can tell me who's playing best? I need Perry to beat Hendry to get my winnings on the accumulator.

    Perry pulled back 3 then, to Hendry's 1.

    COME ON PERRY!

    I think Hendry will do it tbh, he's got more abilities to hold under pressure

    I'm hoping the Ronnie match ends 4-4 today, that way I'll see the most possible frames tomorrow!

    147 looking good!

    Don't think I'll see many frames tomorrow

    8-8! Come on Perry!!!!!!!!!

    lol, you got a 2/1 accumulator

    You could get 2.6 a minute ago in-play on Perry to win.

    I've just put a tenner on Ronnie to win the whole tournament. 6/1 - If he plays like he played today he'll trounce anybody

    Amazing day.

    The fu match was really good, he looked on top form apart from a wobbly couple of frames. Ronnie played unbelievably, it was only 3 frames but I think they'll be the best frames of snooker I'll ever see. I think I was on telly for a brief moment

    Mark J Williams on good form.

    Unfortunately. I find him quite boring

    Judd trump is holding himself quite well, would like to see him go far. Semi would be nice for him. Stephen lee has got hella fat

    I would really like selby to win it.

    Still Ronnie for me on current form, loads of potential champs though, too tough to choose a winner

    I mainly want Ronnie to do well mainly so he doesn't quit.

    Watching the three frames the other day you can see he's on another level to everyone else. Selby vs o'sullivan final would be perfect for me. Not sure if that's possible though

    Did you only watch the one session-3 frames?
    I cant believe how small the Crucible is when I went 20 years ago!

    backed Shaun Murphy at 16/1, fingers crossed for tomorrow............, http://img824.imageshack.us/i/muyhtgrf.jpg/][IMG]http://img824.imageshack.us/img824/9076/muyhtgrf.jpg[/URL] Uploaded with ImageShack.us[/img]

    We watched that 3 frame session. And the Fu one in the morning, which was also pretty good.

    This was the second time I'd been, I was really surprised when I first went. It really is tiny.

    This was our view for the first session, rubbish picture but you get the idea.

    We also met Dominic Dale, he was just wandering around - he looked lost actually. Nobody recognised him, went over and wished him good luck, shook his hand and told him he owed me a quid if he lost. Not really sure he knew what to say to that but he was a really nice chap, Really rather posh

    I dont thnk he is the full ticket to be honest, hence his nickname ''the spaceman''.
    Looks like you had good seats.

    Murphy v O'Sullivan, about to start

    come on RONNIE!!!

    Ronnie 3 - 0 up now, was lucky to take that last frame, you can't make any mistakes against him.
    Edited by: "r4ge" 23rd Apr 2011

    ronnie finishes the session 6 - 2 up

    good play by ronnie

    Selby is looking really strong.

    Selby, Robbie or Trump to win would be great
