A buzzy tournament with great matches - bodes well for a great new decade for snooker.
The return of MJW - and the arrival of flare players like Robertson,Cope and Selby will surely help the new era along.

I seriously fear the worst. This year's Master already had elements in it that clearly were a first glimpse of what will be known as the Hearn effect. Wouldn't even rule out cards having '147' printed on to be spread amongst the crowd - let alone a danceable and (even more important) bawlabe tune to put them in the right mood played right after and before every frame. More and more will need to get their act out as they won't know how to shut the fecking trap - see the Master's final. Plebby as hell. Only a matter of time till they come costumed as well.

spouting more**listen ronnie if u pop in on here ...go & get a fekin day job then pop

frames being a successful business man dont qualify as automatic success running a snooker
organisation.. hearn has been fantastic for darts it all works well but he is naive & thick if
he thinks branding the 2 together will work ... it wont end of..walker was clueless & if this
is what hearn really thinks will put snooker back on the map he wont last 12 months..
i said brains & passion not fat cat salaries to multi millionaires

The wildcard to White gave off some dodgy signals to me. Here's a guy who has spoken about giving players the chance to earn a living as a result of their efforts and talent, and he allows a pathetic has been to leap frog over any number of deserving candidates from the rank and file. However, it did at least offer one of the best bets of all time - Mark King at 1-2.

Think you mean flair player. The last flare player was KirK Stevens.

The walk on music...
I actually think it added something myself. Not much, but a little bit more entertaining than the players just walking on - I think it added to the atmosphere slightly.
The main problem I have is when the match finishes - and both players disappear straight away - why not hold the post match interview in the arena?? Why do it off stage with Hazel, Steve and John/Ken? Give the paying public a bit more.

I also don't have a problem with Hearn talking about doing one-frame events, pro-celeb or whatever. As long as these go alongside the established events and not instead of, then fair enough (one frame snooker made the game famous in the first place).

I know I enjoyed the last week of snooker more than I have in a long time - how much of that was down to Hearn is probably very little - it was on the table where the excitement was. But having said that, I'm not ready to be negative yet. Pokerstars were a good sponsor and another ranking event being lined up - it's looking rosier than under Walker.

Exactly, and I would add, more stupid wildcards and more free money bettings like King´s@1.50

Basically it was exactly like it would have been without Hearn except we got the added bonus of Jimmy Bloody White and embarrassing walk-ons?
