Snooker World Championship

#1
The World Championships start tommorow, anyone else watch the snooker? I think Maguire will win it this year.

Maguire is good but seems to be unable to hold his nerve, ala Jimmy White. Ronnie will go out early, I just can't see him holding his concentration long enough. As for Murphy, since winning the Crucible he hasn't been able to maintain the consistency required to mount a serious challenge.

I personally think Higgins is about to embark on another win. He's got the best all round game in the world at the moment, and is less likely to bottle it.

I don't follow snooker enough to keep an eye on new players, form etc. so don't know who will win but I'm always hooked on the World Championships on TV. I can't wait, glued to the sofa for hours....

I can't see O'Sullivan doing it this year but you can never write him off. Seems to have lost his focus over the past few months. Maguire has a very good draw and should challenge strongly.

Does anybody know the prize-money on offer this year?

I did have a look at the draws last night. I'd love to see Matthew Stevens win this one. I think he's wonderful. But I like Higgins too. It's a shame one of them will be out of it so early on. And I could listen to Terry Williams talking about "scraaaaaa.....ppy frames" 24/7. :D

As long as Ebdon doesn't bore his way through the rounds, i'm not bothered.

It's about time Hendry packed up I think. He's been poor again, Higgins looks in decent form though.

He's still capable of an upset. Steve Davis is still in the top 16. Can't beat quality.

Yeah he is but I cant see Hendry sticking around as long as Davis has.

Especially after this afternoon's showing.

I always look forward to watching him lose, he's arrogant f*ck and a terrible loser.

Urgh he won in the end. Ronnie's on wednesday apparently. I'm still stickin by my prediction of Maguire winnin it
 
#16
My prediction Mark Selby has just been beaten 10-8 by Mark King!

Think Ryan Day could have a good chance against Higgins in the next round. Will try and recuperate my losses from the bookie!

Ding could be a contender as well but he's got a tough one against Marco Fu. Think he's 5-4 up at the moment.

And just because I feel like adding it:

As the commentator, 'Whispering' Ted Lowe, once inadvertently revealed on television. "Fred Davis, the doyen of snooker," he once said in hushed tones at The Crucible, "now 67 years of age and too old to get his leg over, prefers to use his left hand instead."

I trust you've heard of this one:

" There was delighted laughter across the land when commentator Brian Johnston referred to two players during a cricket match, pointing out that 'The bowler's Holding, the batsman's Willey'."

If Ding wins is the Crucible going to get mobbed by Tibetan protestors?
