RILF indeed :)
She has had a bit of favouritism, tis unfair to the guys who were here before her.

So far it looks like the match carries on in a similar pattern: neither play really putting on any sustained fluency.

Looks like all is going to depend on how well Robertson can hold himself together in the final frames.

What a strange succession of great and then terrible moments from both of them, all throughout this final.

Funnily enough I think if Dott was not going for almost everything and playing more tactical stuff he'd get this. In the last frame he went for this stupid red instead of playing safe.

Just out of interest, how many of you actually play the game?
I do and love it!

not_goodwin, Monday, 3 May 2010 20:15 (3 years ago) Permalink

I dabble now and then. Want to get back into it. My friend's a new convert so who knows...

Never touched a snookerbat in my life.

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

These guys make it look pretty easy though.

StanM, Monday, 3 May 2010 20:21 (3 years ago) Permalink

Dabbler too (snooker and pool), would def like to get more into it..

I'm actually supporting dott

the other dude's a haircut

I wish Dott'd be a little more stoic and stop making faces at his fans. :-/

Snookerbat?

I think you'll find it's a stick!

I play about 6-8 hours a week, wish it was more.

I enjoy knocking balls around from time to time, but any time I find myself on a full-length table always turns into a very disheartening experience

best break, 38 :(

not_goodwin, Monday, 3 May 2010 20:35 (3 years ago) Permalink

I play almost never and mine's 32 :P

Played a LOT of pool at uni mind

Ah, that's okay, mine's in the twenties - you were setting yourself up as some kind of hustler there

Ismael Klata, Monday, 3 May 2010 20:38 (3 years ago) Permalink

Do you think they're deliberately not talking/official embargo about Robbo's baby that was due yesterday?

StanM, Monday, 3 May 2010 20:39 (3 years ago) Permalink

i shit it, when i get near 20, the pressure's too much :-/
these guys on tv have it easy.

not_goodwin, Monday, 3 May 2010 20:39 (3 years ago) Permalink

What is up with Robertson?

Ismael Klata, Monday, 3 May 2010 20:42 (3 years ago) Permalink

to my defence, there were no black or pinks involved.
used to play on pub pool team, got ridiculous with rules, so i quit. was told i'd get a smack in the face if i didn't come to next game.
never happened :)

not_goodwin, Monday, 3 May 2010 20:43 (3 years ago) Permalink

Do you all have snooker nicknames? Not "the wizard" Goodwin?

StanM, Monday, 3 May 2010 20:44 (3 years ago) Permalink

i'm getting that on a t-shirt :)

Incredible couple of shots here from Dotty

Ismael Klata, Monday, 3 May 2010 20:48 (3 years ago) Permalink

sweet snooker from dotty

not_goodwin, Monday, 3 May 2010 20:49 (3 years ago) Permalink

if Dott wins this thread I'm putting my fist through the screen

sausage s4rgent (acoleuthic), Monday, 3 May 2010 20:50 (3 years ago) Permalink

lucky there's a vacancy for a 'wizard' at the top level at the moment too xp

Ismael Klata, Monday, 3 May 2010 20:50 (3 years ago) Permalink

you know you've been on ILX too long when

sausage s4rgent (acoleuthic), Monday, 3 May 2010 20:51 (3 years ago) Permalink

Ding Junhui's wikipedia says: "A 26-episode cartoon series Dragon Ball No.1 by Beijing-based D5 Studio, based on Ding's growth from a shy boy to a snooker star, is expected to be broadcast on TV in 2010"

Ismael Klata, Monday, 3 May 2010 20:55 (3 years ago) Permalink

Hope it's more uplifting than John Parrott's effort

Ismael Klata, Monday, 3 May 2010 21:00 (3 years ago) Permalink

Was this John Parrott film directed by Terence Davies?

xyzzzz__, Monday, 3 May 2010 21:04 (3 years ago) Permalink

Jeez, how depressing, this.

he's 8 years older than me & he's basically said he may as well be dead :(

not_goodwin, Monday, 3 May 2010 21:06 (3 years ago) Permalink

Yeah, that Parrott thing was some bleak shit.

ailsa, Monday, 3 May 2010 21:09 (3 years ago) Permalink

Dotts got some fun bags to keep him happy if he loses.

i bet he's really rough in the sack but still has 11 year old voice!

not_goodwin, Monday, 3 May 2010 21:12 (3 years ago) Permalink

"it's great to see you're getting on so well" (graeme's wife and Neil's mother) - yeah, well, you put them next to each other on a couch on live tv, what did you think was going to happen?

StanM, Monday, 3 May 2010 21:17 (3 years ago) Permalink

you know the snooker's shit when people start speculating about the players' shagging prowess.

About that short compilation they just showed: were Maguire and Lee here this year? I thought they were suspected of match fixing and irregular betting, respectively?

StanM, Monday, 3 May 2010 21:25 (3 years ago) Permalink

I can't take much more of this. Dott will still be inching his way to the title when I get up tomorrow morning.

Ismael Klata, Monday, 3 May 2010 21:46 (3 years ago) Permalink

Yeah, I'm giving up too. Nearly midnight here, there's still at least a couple of hours in this. Good luck everyone!

StanM, Monday, 3 May 2010 21:52 (3 years ago) Permalink

Dott's playing quite well but Robertson is playing terrible

Ismael Klata, Monday, 3 May 2010 21:54 (3 years ago) Permalink

I guess it's nerves, his 1st final and all?

not_goodwin, Monday, 3 May 2010 21:57 (3 years ago) Permalink

i thought StanM was english?

not_goodwin, Monday, 3 May 2010 21:57 (3 years ago) Permalink

Belgisch snookerfreak I believe - don't know if he's from Blighty originally
