    He deserves the Championship for going out in public like that, never mind the tournament.

    Lot of time for this new break-off, what's the story behind it, did Williams bring it into fashion?

    How good is Lisowski? I mostly only watch the World Championship but I feel like it's been at least a few years now the commentators bang on about how talented he is while he doesn't really do anything.

    I mean I'm not saying he's shit or anything but the hype always seems to vastly outweigh his performance.

    Yeah that's all I saw on the Williams thing too. It makes for a much more exciting battle for the viewer.

    God I love to see that permanently seething ginger shit in the mud almost as much as I love to see Ronnie in non-meltdown mode.

    I saw Trump talking smack about Ronnie too. Shame they can't meet until final.

    That red was horrific from the tartan nugget, he must have missed it by about a foot.

    Didn't even occur to me that O'Sullivan wouldn't win from the position he got himself into.

    I noticed it earlier with an article about that chap who infected a bunch of people with covid which seems to have been corrected (I think it originally started "A man has been in Spain arrested . . .") but really, do the Beeb even have people writing their shit for them or is it all just Russian bots?

    Mark Williams completed a dominant 13-7 second-round win over fellow multiple world champion John Higgins in a re-run of the 2018 World Championship final.

    The 45-year-old Welshman increased his overnight lead to 10-3 with a five-frame burst in the morning session.

    A gritty three-frame riposte featuring two tons kept Higgins, 45, in touch for the evening.

    But three-time champion Williams, 46, closed out an impressive victory with breaks of 76, 85 and 77.
    Come on.

    Shame he isn't actually 44 or 47 (he's 46).

    Given the position he was in after the first 6 or 8 frames or whatever it was yesterday Robertson has properly fucked this. Played some rancid shots.

    It said earlier he had 50% pot success in this session.

    There goes my bet.

    Yeah. He's missed some that should have been proper gimmes as well.

    They also showed another of Wilson's charismatic interviews earlier. He always seems a bit of a bellend.

    Selby mullering Williams too.

    Hopefully there's a bit more entertainment in this afternoon's games.

    No idea how that one hasn't gone in for Trump. Bit mad that the cue ball has managed to go in from that.

    Selby's going to bore his way to the title.isnt he?

    I'm hoping for Murphy from here, I guess.

    Fell in love a little bit with Murphy in his post-match Zoom call on BBC, he seems a lovely man. I'm rooting for the big lads over the lads lads lads in both games now.

    Yeah I think Murphy always comes across really well and would similarly LOVE IT if Bingham knocked out 'the Jester.'

    I'm obviously gutted that the Tartan Nugget got knocked out.

    Same here. Hope he wins now. So many of them are so fucking boring when they talk. Jack Lisowski on commentary the other day almost had me asleep.

    I’ve progressed from “anyone but Higgins” to now “anyone but Selby.”

    Murphy would be nice to see though.

    I've always liked it as it seems somewhat self-deprecating (ie he's a lucky bugger).

    Didn't get much of it in that frame although it was nice to see Selby miss that red, so I guess that counts as some.

    I went to make myself lunch and have a shower and come back to lots of thrilling chat about cushions and cloth.

    What's happened? Has the table done something freakish?

    Yeah, this is good. Even more so if you try to read some predatory double meaning into 'safe route back to baulk'.

    Every frame would end in cynical tippy-tap wouldn't it? 4, or even 8 or 12 points is nothing in most frames.

    That is rotten luck from Bingham to pot the blue and snooker himself.

    "Nothing from Selby" say the commentators, as if there's any reason to expect emotional response from a dead-eyed automaton who's never once done a convincing human smile.

    Ball-run is about to come out and walk right into several drawn out tactical exchanges, I feel.
