Thanks 180, that was a great line up you went to see. I remember John Lowe giving me a pound to put in a fruit machine when I was a kid in the 80's, it was in some pub in Chesterfield.

I used to work with Darron Brown so I'm keen to see how he shapes up against some very good players.

You were pretty close with that DnB, he lost 4-2 in the final to MVG, but I think he hit more 180's than anybody else.

It was a great night but the only downside was the VIP/players bar was closed to us after 8.30pm, so I was only in there for about 10 minutes and didn't get to speak to most of the players.

Nice one S.kenbo. I heard Jim was 16's? Nice e/w profit haha.

Didn't you manage to get pics with the players in the vip afterwards?

Normally have the group of players lining up with fans as well as individual ones?

I didn't get any pictures, I was a bit naive to how it all worked. I didn't know we were allowed into the players lounge until it was nearly too late. I watched the players practising for a few minutes then had a smoke outside with Daz Brown. Winstanley was out there and Bristow was trying to entertain a small crowd (he sounded whankered!). Laugh

I'm going to go to a similar event in Derby around September so I'll know the score a bit better then.
