SGM1A1 - 17 Apr 2014 13:32:16 (#2 of 2117)

Mark Williams not playing at the Crucible for the first time since 1996 having lost to Alan McManus in the final qualifying round.

Moschops - 17 Apr 2014 14:36:24 (#3 of 2117)

Peter Ebdon missing out for the first time in his career

djsuggz - 17 Apr 2014 14:44:24 (#4 of 2117)

Semi-Finals (my prediction):

O'Sullivan vs Ding

Selby vs Robertson

O'Sullivan to beat Robertson and to win his sixth title.

Moschops - 17 Apr 2014 14:46:34 (#5 of 2117)

So long as it's not Murphy

djsuggz - 17 Apr 2014 14:49:17 (#6 of 2117)

ABM

schrodingerscat - 17 Apr 2014 15:33:47 (#7 of 2117)

Hmmmm, I'm a bit anyone but Ronnie as well as ABM, but can't really see past O'Sullivan for the title.

< I'm a bit anyone but Ronnie >

Me too. We may have words about it in this house.

schrodingerscat - 17 Apr 2014 15:36:30 (#9 of 2117)

Fortunately MrCat and I are as one in our anyone but Ronnieness.

though we still hate Murphy more

Moschops - 17 Apr 2014 15:51:04 (#10 of 2117)

I agree ROS is a massive twat away from the table, but he's a lovely player to watch.

djsuggz - 17 Apr 2014 17:00:37 (#11 of 2117)

Bit of a twit, 'tis true, but I won't complain if he wins again. Best player I have ever seen, by a distance, and he won't be around forever.

Moschops - 19 Apr 2014 20:12:24 (#12 of 2117)

Cope leads Murphy 5-4 after the first session. ROS 8-4 ahead right now

clammy - 20 Apr 2014 11:22:05 (#13 of 2117)

I don't think Ronnie ever has anything interesting to say (blushes) but what a player.

djsuggz - 20 Apr 2014 14:09:52 (#14 of 2117)

Terrific stuff from Doherty today.

Ding bows out in Round 1 to a qualifier; chap called Wasley. Big shock. A Sheffield under-achiever, is our Ding.

Higgins in trouble at 3-6 against McManus.

Four final frame deciders already. Warming up nicely.

djsuggz - 22 Apr 2014 11:05:49 (#18 of 2117)

McManus now four frames clear at 7-3.

Marco Fu has started well against the 'Pinner Potter', Martin Gould. 2-0 so far.

lapsedcat - 22 Apr 2014 11:28:29 (#19 of 2117)

The game's never been the same since Doug Mountjoy retired.

djsuggz - 22 Apr 2014 23:29:07 (#20 of 2117)

Higgins taken out by 'Angles' McManus this morning. Another big name goes earlier.

McManus will play Doherty for a place in the last eight.
