Wink Things That Make You Go Hmm ! - 05-19-2011, 08:27 PM

2008 Maplins UK Snooker Championships :

Stephen Maguire 9 v 3 Jamie Burnett .

This match was under investigation as the Bookies said there was irregular betting patterns on the match result scoreline and they called in the cops !

News related articles, http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotlan...-west-13441729.

http://www.sportinglife.com/snooker/...p.html&BID=663.

Heres a you tube clip of the black that Jamie Burnett missed to make the score Maguire 8 v 4 Burnett.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xv_W0OziQa8.

The Bookies never like to pay out and as the snooker commentators would say Jamies missed pot on the black was a bad miss,makes you wonder Hmm !

Have fun all but what do you think?

Too hard to tell, it wasn't an easy pot especially under pressure. I'd like to see how he got to that position. If he was cheating perhaps he played position for a tough pot to make it look reasonable.

But at the end of the day, we've seen the best miss straight in shots on the pink before. Anything can happen.


I would kill for a nobel peace prize

That's a fair point Cameron. It is into a blind pocket after all.

I see four things that can happen on this shot.

You can make it.
You can miss it thick and often not leave it.
You can hang it.
Or you can over-cut it, ensuring a hanger for your opponent.

I'm with Church on this one...hmmmm

I remember after the match his explanation as to why he missed that black by so far was that it was the most pressure he'd ever felt in his life, as he knew about the suspisciously high number of bets on a 9-3 scoreline. I'm not sure but I'd like to think they were innocent.

Question Mark King Blast For Injured O'Sullivan ! - 07-18-2011, 07:27 PM

Hi all,

When I read that Ronnie O'Sullivan had pulled out of the Australian Open I thought here we go again same old story,hes at it again ! So two versions of the story I read were :

1. http://www.sportinglife.com/snooker/...n.html&BID=663


2. http://www.worldsnooker.com/page/New...394154,00.html

What version do you prefer,number 1 or number 2 ?

Who is this ronnie sullivan geezer?

Well maybe it's a saft question today but it wont be if he keeps this lark up.

He's an oddball, doubt he even knows himself what he needs to be motivated to play.

Sounds like some punters knew about Joe's injury and bet against him to win.
