Robertson takes it and that's his twelfth ranking title.

Was a bit of a slog this final, but well done Neil. :win:

Depends when it is, I try to always watch the final at least if I can't see much of the tournament.

A verrrrrrrrrrrrry well done to Darren for gettin as far as the semis.



I wonder what another old welsh fogey by the name of Wildey thinks of Darrens performance in this tourney. :chin:

Me thinks he won,t be chuffed,Wlidey does,nt like that dinosaurs like Darren are still able to win some matches theeeeeeeeeese dayyyyyyys,but him being Welsh,Wildey might be chuffed for him after all. :-D





Congrats to Robbo for winning this and not crumbling for once :-D

No he doesn't. He highlights the shortcomings of the format and technical specs of the table. They work fine with other levels of snooker, but at the vey top level the competitiveness is compromised by constant large breaks.


It's like a tennis game where players constantly rain down aces on each other.

Some may criticise this format as not a proper full ranking win. You could also say that about his 2010 World Open win, to be fair. That had a marmite format.

Tables is the same for both players. So that argument is worth rubbish
