B.Hawkins should have bolted clear in this match. J.Higgins is all over the place, but Hawkins is cueing poorly. I expected him to raise his game for this match, but I've never seen him miss so many mid to long range pots...and yet another opportunity slips by.

He hasn't played well all tournament, but I thought in part that was due to J.Trump going out early, and all of a sudden he basically had a place in the SF handed to him on a plate. I expected him to raise his game considerably for this match, but it just hasn't happened for some reason.

Whatever happens in the other match there could be a come down for the winner as it has been intense and high quality. Whereas the winner of this mugfest might not feel the pressure.

Lots of players have spare tips knocked in,i know when I was playing everyday I would be tearing them on and off to find a decent one some of them would just disintegrate when you put a file on them would drive me mad.I don't know how they find one so quick that's going to play well,would take me 2/3 days just to find out and 50% of the time I would be ripping them off,couldn't screw back,too hard or too soft.

What time tonight will they wheel on Virgo to do his impersonations again, as a replacement 'entertainment'.

Hard to believe now but those impersonations of his actually stopped the nation back in the early 80s.

Barry could do with a new nickname because 'The Hawk' doesn't exactly display much imagination, and who wants to be some bird-brained creature that lives on furry woodland creatures?

How about 'Abject Barry Hawkins' as a reminder of his play over the first 3 sessions?

I actually think they should play the match several times in a film studio then project the hologram of the best one. Doubt the Crucibleites would twig...
