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

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.

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 :)

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

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

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

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"

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?

Jeez, how depressing, this.

I am not going to let this pass w/out comment so I'll just press *submit post* button now

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.

mierda defensa ... no impedir ... espectador (onimo), Monday, 3 May 2010 21:18 (3 years ago) Permalink

and his son's got trendy specs!

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

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

Ismael Klata, Monday, 3 May 2010 21:59 (3 years ago) Permalink

Belgian iirc

Helluva long frame there followed by lots of crappy 'COME ON' air punching.

mierda defensa ... no impedir ... espectador (onimo), Monday, 3 May 2010 22:02 (3 years ago) Permalink

tht whole frame was excruciating

^^^^

sausage s4rgent (acoleuthic), Monday, 3 May 2010 22:04 (3 years ago) Permalink

Ahhh Belgian, was wondering where his nearly midnight come from.

not_goodwin, Monday, 3 May 2010 22:08 (3 years ago) Permalink

this fucking match

sausage s4rgent (acoleuthic), Monday, 3 May 2010 22:24 (3 years ago) Permalink

i know, i may retire, keep checking iplayer while watching the road.

not_goodwin, Monday, 3 May 2010 22:25 (3 years ago) Permalink

Like the great champion he is, Ray Reardon has spotted that Rishi is tiring and is proceeding to grind him down.

William Bloody Swygart, Monday, 3 May 2010 22:26 (3 years ago) Permalink

not_goodwin are you driving while watching the snooker world championship final and posting to ilx

lmbo slice (cozen), Monday, 3 May 2010 22:29 (3 years ago) Permalink

They should do a retro tournament special where these new young players drink pints and smoke while playing 30 odd frames.

not_goodwin, Monday, 3 May 2010 22:31 (3 years ago) Permalink

xpost, ha!

no, the film "the road"

not_goodwin, Monday, 3 May 2010 22:31 (3 years ago) Permalink

looooooool

sausage s4rgent (acoleuthic), Monday, 3 May 2010 22:33 (3 years ago) Permalink

Tactfully avoiding mentioning Quinten Hann there, well done Dennis.

William Bloody Swygart, Monday, 3 May 2010 22:44 (3 years ago) Permalink

When did the Ebdon-Dott nightmare finish? Cos I think that was later than 1985's final, and as such the latest ever. But this will surely go roaring past that...

William Bloody Swygart, Monday, 3 May 2010 22:51 (3 years ago) Permalink

guh

lmbo slice (cozen), Monday, 3 May 2010 22:55 (3 years ago) Permalink

on for a 6am finish at this rate

lmbo slice (cozen), Monday, 3 May 2010 22:55 (3 years ago) Permalink

dott's just chanking them now

cba by the looks of it

lmbo slice (cozen), Monday, 3 May 2010 22:59 (3 years ago) Permalink

This could finally be the cure for my ongoing insomnia...

"Whose game is affected most under the pressure?" = my new favourite euphemism for "Whose fault is this?"
