Starts tomorrow at 0930.  BO11s, 3 waves of 8 tables for the first few rounds.  Guessing (hoping) we'll get 4 LV tables to choose from, though even then we'd be scraping the barrel a bit in some of the early sessions.

Well, the market agrees that this is a better chance for Zhou than what he was put in at.  He was 3.75 with 365 when I posted last night.  Now all he's got to do is pull it off!

Ha ha, yeah, i saw that. For a second i was sure she'd turn around to Shon and say "you were sat in that same seat 12 months ago Shaun when Ronnie wasn't quite so complimentary about Zhou" but instead she came out with some mind bogglingly boring cr@p about rhythm. Typical Ronnie! Typical BBC!

Had to leave match at 4-2, didn't foresee that happening but 6th was a good frame to win for Zhou. Good match for trading purposes i imagine.

if ronnie was more committed to the game he would have 12 worlds, 12 UK's and 12 masters minumum. he is different class. but he is lucky to be able to make millions playing this minority sport. uk, ireland and a few million in china. thats about it. no one else is bothered with the sport. it would be good if he would promote the game better and stop whining. he talks as if he expects the game to have the same facilities as the tennis majors, golf majors, the EPL or NBA.........its not a major sport. get a reality check ronnie.
his fans say look at what he brings to the game. he was born with this talent. he doesnt have to work hard at it. its a gift. he doesnt seem to appreciate it. its took ronnie 30 years to win the same amount of big events as it took hendry and davis 10 years. he admitted himself a few weeks ago that he should have 14 world championships. hes not wrong.
give him a few weeks and he will be trashing the sport again.
