The waiting is nearly over, and the best 17 days of the year are upon us.

The first thing to say is that it is very odd that R.O'Sullivan has been scheduled to play on Day 1. And, given that him and M.Selby have been given difficult opening matches - it's not beyond the bounds of possibility that the 'Big 2' (because that is what they are) - could both be out by tomorrow morning. It gets the tournament off to a high profile start, but it's a strange decision. On the theme of O'Sullivan's schedule - his potential 2nd round match will be played over 2 days and not 3 - which is the first time since 2007 that this has been the case.

Anyway, everyone is full of optimism at this stage, me included, and hopefully this is the year The Hawk lands the title. He has had a bad year with family problems away from the table, but he's started to find a bit of form reaching the final of The Welsh Open and The China Open, he has a decent draw, and his schedule is ideal. He just needs to find his scoring boots. If he does, then another big Crucible challenge looks on the cards.

Its a shame Jed, the winner could be cueing a quarter of an inch off for 17 days and still win it.

It's a disgrace, this is supposed to be the ultimate examination of a snooker player and they play it on joke tables.

They should actually be making a point of it.

OK lads, hope you have enjoyed the buckets all season but this is the World Championship. Its going to take a bit more to get these balls in.

Someone seems to have decided Lu is the victor against Fu, taking 2.1 for decent money here while he's 2.2 with 365 between frames.

I can't watch the BBC coverage due to Dennis.

Don't mind Joe Johnson, him and his co comm are saying they are big.

Jed, really, that bad.

I am actually afraid to look and am moderately sick at the thought.

Given i have gone from never missing a shot televised to now only watching 2/3 times a year.
