Qualifiers start tomorrow morning at 1000, 2 tables, BO7s.  Looks like there's more structure than roll-on, roll-off, start times for the remaining tranches given as 1300, 1600, 1900.

Tom Ford v Dylan Emery & Craigie v Dean Young look the most interesting of tomorrow's fare, though Ricky is massively underperforming this season.  Peng Yisong is dangerous but is just as likely to dish up 3 massive chances for every frame he nails.

Absolute shocking  attitude from craigie, will get fined and fully deserves to.He broke off in the last frame by smashing the reds all over, and in the previous frame with i think a 53 point lead was in my opinion chucking the cue at anything, even though having a poor run of the ball you expect better,especially as he played so well last week.
Report Latalomne December 2, 2022 9:02 AM GMT
Oh, blimey, MP!  It felt like I was spread quite thin all night and missed a lot of that!  I did see him make a red leave the table, but assumed that was an isolated incident! 

That's the second concession in the last two weeks, Dave being the first.  I've not seen anything about any punishment for him yet, but it is REALLY bad for the game, and at a time where interest in dwindling amongst the young, it's the last thing the sport needs.

I find BFLV to always be generally the same as Eurosport? (sometimes a fraction in front, sometimes a fraction behind.

It seems strange that we experience a difference?

BFLV is generally a couple of seconds in front for me, but they definitely dial it back and forth.  It was parity again at the business end of that frame, pre-respot

Report Latalomne December 4, 2022 8:50 AM GMT
So, not the final any of us would have predicted, but it's impossible to argue against either player not fully deserving to be there:

Cabby has beaten:  Ronnie, Hossein, Kyren and Theppy
JOC has beaten:  Speccy, Ding, MJW, Licky and Robbo

Cabby has scored 17x 50s in 38 frames played, converting 5 into BTs
JOC has scored 16x 50s in 35 frames played, converting 3 into BTs

Cabby is scoring very slightly better over the course of the season, but it's negligible.

The players have never met previously.

Cabby has played in two finals before, losing both.
JOC has never played in a final.

I was super impressed with JOC last night (as I have been all week).  The composure he showed in the face of some brilliant Robbo scoring (and not missing!) was top class.  He didn't waver in the slightest when the winning line came in sight, which he has been guilty of in far lesser games a few times in the past.

I think it's a really hard match to have a confident opinion about, given there are so many "firsts", and I can only assume the bookies are making Cabby fav on the basis he has final experience (albeit losing experience), and that JOC might have found it difficult to get to sleep last night.  For me it's an absolute coin toss.  Fingers crossed it delivers and nerves don't get the better of them!
Report appformat December 4, 2022 12:32 PM GMT
Good write up Lat.
agree its a coin toss, but to me Joe looked the fresher of the two, and Cabby was rather let off the hook v Theppy a few times ...

I went out for a ride on the mountain bike this morning, and the more I thought about it, the more I came to the conclusion that if JOC replicates the form he showed last night, he's quite a comfortable winner, because of his superior safety game.  Doing that is the IF, though!
