it seemed strange in a prestigous televised semi final to have first one to 6 (almost amatuerish) should have been first to 9 at least and maybe the quarter finals as well
or are they holding the compo in a tier 3 area

Most would only want a longer format if a shot clock was introduced and set at one minute. Very few enjoy watching late into the night/early hours for a game that should be done and dusted by 10pm. Robertson was awful, taking 3 & 4 minutes to play shots. No more than 1 minute should be the format with maximum frame length of 30 minutes

As people have said, then don't watch! I think Formula 1 is the most boring sport going, so guess what? I don't watch it, don't read articles about it, and certainly don't comment on it. I also respect all those that love it hence wouldn't see any need to troll the F1 comments section. Oh well, sadly I guess trolls do exist and in their little minds get pleasure out of it.

I don't ever buy it when people say this, they said it about Trump last night when it went to 3-2 and his 'hanging in there' consisted of a couple of poor shots which Lu didn't punish and then left a chance on a plate for him.

Especially on Eurosport it's funny how often it gets said for top players but anyone else they correctly say their opponent handed them the chances to win the frames.

According to cue tracker the current number of frames per century for JT, NR and ROS also supports this. NotE these century rates are all significantly better than other top 16 players.
Judd Trump 10.45
Neil Robertson 10.79
Ronnie O'Sullivan 10.88

Too right. The BBC have so many commentators and summarisers but then always plum for Taylor! Honestly the guy is pensionable and irrelevant. If he’s not sucking up to the players wives he’s sucks up to the audience...oh hang on no audience so he just sucks! Doherty just repeats what Parrot or Hendry says in a slightly different way. Time for a change. McManus and hendry very good though.

Is there something tired about how the Milton Keynes Tables are playing ? The bounce off the cushions and the way the balls are moving on the slate looks very inconsistent to me . Both players seem to be hacking at shots with no idea where the cue ball is going . Having said that Robertson has just levelled at 8-8 with a century . Game on

Fingers quivering over his Twitter feed, angry confusion etched on his face, the outgoing US President considers his response.

He doesn't know who Snooker is, what a Robertson does or why BBC are reporting that he lost in Milton Keynes, but one thing is certain - he won't stand for this outrageous and fraudulent campaign against him.

(Well done Neil - top performance and a heartfelt interview.)

Yes, indeed, Googly.
This isn't over by a long snooker chalk...

Infact, Rudi 'The Equalizer' Giulani has already been contacted and they're appealing this "result".

At the start, there are obviously way more red balls than blue ones on a snooker table, so the highest court in the land is bound to overturn this. Right?

...either that, or it's a one-way ticket to the mental institution.

Incredible finish. Trump got the rub of the green with a fluked snooker to get his chance at the end so Robertson would have felt hard done by if he didn’t return to the table. Very good match and hard luck for Trump. Excellent pot for the win that was a very tense and hard fought final frame. I prefer to think Robertson won it rather than Trump lost it

Trump lost it. Twice. He should have won when 9-8 and 48-0 up and missed a red allowing Robertson to clear up and of course again when missing the final Pink. As world number 1 they were not difficult chances really and now his temperament will be questioned again.
