Wouldn't mind if Dott won -- great to see him back, and I reckon he is playing better than he has ever done.

given the quality of this second semi so far, robertson is gonna walk this

hes been the one banging the drum for barry hearn to takeover so he can earn more money.

I have somehow avoided watching a single Dott match so far.

Was rooting for Selby tbh.

dott is a local lad (so is higgins i suppose)

pfunkboy (Herman G. Neuname), Sunday, 2 May 2010 00:29 (4 years ago) Permalink

I enjoyed the last frame of the dott match, some good snooker in that.

A collision of two tough players, each with a remarkable story, will take place today and tomorrow in the final of the world snooker championship.

Indeed!

StanM, Sunday, 2 May 2010 09:03 (4 years ago) Permalink

ok what have i always said about this guy

Didn't you always say he was boring? Well, now he isn't - just like Tiger Woods.

That 47 break was phenomenal. Exhibition snooker on acid or what? For two of the three frames that he needed to win it was until the 40 break on the final one that had any control of the cue ball for the basic bread-and-butter shots.

Anyone see Robertson's interview yesterday after the game...got all tearful after saying that on what might have been his final go at the sport he arrived in the UK and was down to his last 500 quid.

Can see Robertson leading after the first day but Dott coming back and this being quite close...we'll see.

BBC News breaking news ticker: "Suspended snooker champion John Higgins denies being involved in match-fixing"

StanM, Sunday, 2 May 2010 14:49 (4 years ago) Permalink

He said he was scared and just went along with it.
"I'm 100% guilt free" he said in statement just before snooker started.

9-7 will be an amazing feat for dott

cozen, Sunday, 2 May 2010 21:50 (4 years ago) Permalink

... and he gets it. What a scrappy affair, this match. Exciting, but let's hope they both get a good night's sleep, eh?

StanM, Sunday, 2 May 2010 22:40 (4 years ago) Permalink

Never seen someone looking so exhausted as Dott in that second session.

Here is hoping for more fluidity today.

xyzzzz__, Monday, 3 May 2010 09:20 (4 years ago) Permalink

who has the more embarrassing hair here. dott with the plugs or the feathered bondi barnet of robbo?

Times New Excels At (jim in glasgow), Monday, 3 May 2010 14:23 (4 years ago) Permalink

are they plugs?

Michael B, Monday, 3 May 2010 15:35 (4 years ago) Permalink

At this pace they're not going to have a very long break between the sessions, if there's going to be one at all.

StanM, Monday, 3 May 2010 16:18 (4 years ago) Permalink

are they plugs?

don't think so.

nice century there by dott.

Times New Excels At (jim in glasgow), Monday, 3 May 2010 17:10 (4 years ago) Permalink

not plugs, just thinning hair with gel.

not_goodwin, Monday, 3 May 2010 17:13 (4 years ago) Permalink

Er, only 6 frames in this session then?

StanM, Monday, 3 May 2010 17:20 (4 years ago) Permalink

Yeah, originally eight frames but last session has to start by 8pm so it can be cut short to allow enough for a break.

xyzzzz__, Monday, 3 May 2010 17:43 (4 years ago) Permalink

Ah. Thanks, did not know that.

StanM, Monday, 3 May 2010 17:44 (4 years ago) Permalink

Didn't really want these 2 in the final, but if Dott's had a mini siesta, it could be interesting.
Will go with bed-head to win though.
Whoever wins, will cry i'm guessing?

not_goodwin, Monday, 3 May 2010 18:56 (4 years ago) Permalink

Dott's crying already (I know, I know, it's just his face, he can't help it)

StanM, Monday, 3 May 2010 19:05 (4 years ago) Permalink

Robertson's got another three gears, so I kinda expect him to cruise the rest. Dodgy positional play will always be his weak-spot, though...

sausage s4rgent (acoleuthic), Monday, 3 May 2010 19:06 (4 years ago) Permalink

Think 60-40 chance on Robertson winning...but I thought Selby would beat Dott and he didn't.

xyzzzz__, Monday, 3 May 2010 19:08 (4 years ago) Permalink

who's actually supporting Dott

sausage s4rgent (acoleuthic), Monday, 3 May 2010 19:13 (4 years ago) Permalink

We need a new boring resilient dogged Scotsman now that Higgins is mildly interesting.

mierda defensa ... no impedir ... espectador (onimo), Monday, 3 May 2010 19:14 (4 years ago) Permalink

we definitely don't

sausage s4rgent (acoleuthic), Monday, 3 May 2010 19:15 (4 years ago) Permalink

especially not one who's already boringed his way to one world title

sausage s4rgent (acoleuthic), Monday, 3 May 2010 19:16 (4 years ago) Permalink

Wonder how many titles Higgins threw at O'Sullivan for cash pounds...

mierda defensa ... no impedir ... espectador (onimo), Monday, 3 May 2010 19:16 (4 years ago) Permalink

Also wonder if Steve Davis is questioning the value of his recent giant killing...

mierda defensa ... no impedir ... espectador (onimo), Monday, 3 May 2010 19:17 (4 years ago) Permalink

who's actually supporting Dott
he's getting a few cheers and c'mons!

not_goodwin, Monday, 3 May 2010 19:17 (4 years ago) Permalink

from british nationalists

sausage s4rgent (acoleuthic), Monday, 3 May 2010 19:18 (4 years ago) Permalink

I was just going to hint at how suspicious the lack of centuries was in the final, as if they didn't dare score one because they knew the world's mafia was betting on it and the snooker police was watching their every move, and then Dott made one. :-/

StanM, Monday, 3 May 2010 19:19 (4 years ago) Permalink

also, no lady ref for final?
too busy pissing about with silly quiz's with old snooker players.

not_goodwin, Monday, 3 May 2010 19:19 (4 years ago) Permalink

awesome self-snooker there from the dottster

sausage s4rgent (acoleuthic), Monday, 3 May 2010 19:20 (4 years ago) Permalink

Right, that's a spanking. xpost

StanM, Monday, 3 May 2010 19:21 (4 years ago) Permalink

i like Robertsons foundation, really brings his eyes out ;)

What a RILF, eh?
