Whatcha fink folks ?

Emperor Barry Hearn say's fine , fair enough and I will relocate the World Snooker Finals to Saudi Arabia .

I see no end th this Corona Virus but it wouldn't surprise me if Emperor Hearn relocated the World's to Saudi Arabia .

Just think of all the money he could make ! :rolleyes:

Good to see. Sometimes when watching tournament play we have to remember that a couple thousand pound win in a first round is not a trivial amount to those ranked outside the top 32.

A small supplement at this time likely means that a dozen or so players who may have been contemplating turning in the cue stick might keep putting in the practice hours at the table and be around for next season.

Massive congrats to my pal @SeanMaddocks147 getting his tour card. Progressed so much since we gave him a place in the SB Classic. Credit to Neil Johnson, his coach and a great friend of mine for getting him to this point in his career.

Just wish I had a cut of his winnings.

Willie Thorne R.I.P.

It was a bit of a shock when Talksport Radio 9am news announced that Willie Thorne had passed away . The Spanish hospital released him to go home and a Gofundme page was set up and he went back to the Spanish hospital for treatment but it was too late by then . I was that taken aback I didn't know where to post the news of his passing and there's always more news that follows later so I posted it here .

Willie Thorne R.I.P.
