This is almost as tasty as going back thirty years for a Hendry - Davis final.

Sure, Trump and Robertson aren't the two greatest ever, but the are currently the two best by far.

Plus, we shall not be subject to watching a player pick his nose, or another constantly waving to his maw.

This tourney, like all bar the Crucible is still a joke. Triple Crown, my eye! Best of eleven with a best of nineteen final is a joke. The best players are barely warming up by then.

The Masters is even more ludicrous. An invitational? Best of eleven until a best of nineteen final? We play that down the Legion.

I doubt you'd pot a single ball against ball against a pro, unless they set one up for you. The gulf between amateur & even the lower-ranked pro players is staggering

Lucky fellow then! But if so perhaps you might encourage her to come back to present the Snooker.Her female replacement is woke in high heels which is ok but Jason M and that oik with an Afro are both vomit inducing.

This final looks as good as Mariah Carey in a red dress!

But, it is still no Crucible. Best of 19? Spit. Try best of 35.
