@edenGD02 @snookerarmchair I think there's a pattern of treating women in sports(and not only in sports!) like they don't deserve the same acknowledgement or the same rewards for what they do. The governing bodies of their respective sports should realize that this is a problem that needs to be addressed as soon as possible. I don't see any reason why women should not be able to compete at the highest levels, but here needs to be an incentive to get totally invested in the sport.

There's a number of players that no offence to everyone else.. would be too good for the seniors it just wouldn't be fair. So when these retire in the next few years, unless they completely drop off.. be interesting to see what they do.

List of all non-UK Snooker World Champions so far:

- 1980: Cliff Thorburn (CAN)
- 1997: Ken Doherty (IRL)
- 2010: Neil Robertson (AUS)

It’s incredibly rare for people outside the UK to be in the final (only one since 2010 – Ding Junhui in 2016), let alone being in a winning position. That’s why Brecel’s attempt is so historic.

@ClaudiaZahn Fair enough.

Ronnie is how he is, sometimes I wish he'd just let "his snooker" do the talk but..

Something for the statistic heads in the #Snooker community:

Mark Selby has been behind after session 2 in two of his three world titles. But he has always been in the lead after session 3. The largest frame difference against him in a world final he won has been four (6:2 after the first session in 2016).

I think Luca has good chances.

What is fascinating about Mark Selby is that he can adapt to the playing style that is most punishing for his opponent. Against Mark Allen in the semis that meant bringing everything to a halt and grinding through it. Because he expected Allen to make few errors.

Against Luca Brecel, he can play more open because Brecel risks a lot, giving Selby a lot of openings. Selby’s way to win is that Brecel know that those opportunities will be used. And that forces Brecel to play differently.

So, Eurosport featured Allen, Selby, and Brecel in the mid-session interval, but not Si? Is it because of the language barrier? If so, translators do exist! It really feels like the Chinese players getting the short end of the straw in these media situations. Reminds me a few years back where a Chinese player won a big tournament and the post-match interview was not professionally translated. Will we see this again?

Wow, Si Jiahui. Phenomenal performance this morning.

This will be tough for Luca Brecel to fight back. Not impossible but nearly so. Another 6:2 session and Si could even get a day off. But then Brecel is always better in the second half of a match. I’d assume to really have a chance to win, Brecel would need a 6:2 session win tonight.

Can't they do their protesting in a proper place and manner, like behind closed doors where nobody sees them?

Oh.

Full support and solidarity with the climate protesters at the snooker today. All nonviolent protest is valid.

It’s sad for the players, but that’s just how the cookie crumbles. They’ll be fine. The table will be cleaned.

#Snooker championships Round 1 interrupted by #JustStopOil protesters.

"Two individuals with 'STOP' on their t-shirt appeared at the #Crucible in Sheffield, live on BBC four."

(Snooker world a little non-plussed but after this they will know. The whole idea is to get attention for the #ClimateCrisis).
