Welcome to the worst ever top 16 assembled in the history of the game and on the worst ever tables also.

I can barely watch.

I do so only for the purpose of winning money.

Two tournaments in the season now.

The rest does not even register.

S.Hendry has mentioned a few times in commentary how easy the tables are playing. The latest one I heard from him was when the ball caught the near left hand black jaw at a reasonable pace and dropped. He sounded exasperated, but then they then go back to the studio and start talking about whether the record for the number of centuries will be being beaten at The Masters!!

G.Dott said in a recent Eurosport interview that over the last 2-3 years that the pockets have become too big, and I for one will take Dotty's and Hendry's word on this rather than D.Taylor's or J.Parrott's.

it suits their narrative to play along with the idea that the game has never been in better health, standard has never been higher etc

fact is the bags are absolutely fkin massive and mugs can look on these tables over a short game

hearn wants as many far east players he can get winning ranking events
problem for him is there aren't many top players about from the far east

so to square that circle, the tour needed expanding and the standard required to win ranking events needed to come down
hence the 128 format and the 9 ball bags

UK market = little or no growth potential
far east market = ££££££££££££££££££££££££££££££££££ printer

and barry has always been a £ man

that's my view on the game
