Snookered

Somewhere for the annoying and/or off-topic threads to go. Feel free to post about whatever, but abuse will still be dealt with, and possibly with more force. Especially pac-porno. ;)

"QUINTEN HANN

How to win 10,000 dollars on a video game and more revelations from snooker’s leading Australian… "

Grand Prix winner will be Ronnie rocket, "pin up boy" Hunter, or Nuggett :)
Would be nice to see Darling of Dublin or Rumford robot in the final also...Dott?

How you pronounce Graeme Dott?
"greimi", "greim"?

More like "Grey" followed by "mmmmm".

Higgins 147 was great. Ken beaten last night. O'Sullivan all the way methinks.

Yeah, wouldn't dare betting against Ronnie. He has to beat "Greymmmm" next game though. That "Higginseeezzz" 147 must've been most easiest looking maximum I've ever seen...Talk about accurate cue ball controll. Only once he did have to make a tough shot, 2 cushions from black to yellow.
Hendry might be on easier side of the draw, a final candidate for sure.
Too bad they didn't show Ali Carter vs Hunter match at Eurosport, must have been a thriller.

Yeah, sad news alright. I'm amazed that his arch-rival Alex Higgins has outlasted him......

Graeme Devine, formally of iD software, pronounces his name like Graham... or more phonetically, "gram" as stated above.

I'd bet that isn't the only way it gets pronounced though. :P

Well, that must depend where you are from. The question is where is name Graeme originally from.

Ronnie wrote:
“You either have a natural instinct to be a winner or you don’t,” he said. “That’s what makes the difference between the champions and the rest. I’m very fortunate to have inherited that. I’ve spent a long time looking for an answer but it’s always been there and it always will be there.

“I’d like to think that I could have been a champion at anything. It’s the same with Stephen Hendry. Everyone is looking for something, for an edge…but there is no edge because you are the edge. You can visit sports psychologists or put towels over your head but it won’t make much difference. NASA could put a chip into another player’s brain but it wouldn’t make him into a Hendry.


Hendry claims to have practised himself back into form. Hope so!
But it's hes arch-rival/friend Doherty next round.

O’Sullivan added. "I wasn’t really concentrating when I played Graeme in Malta - that’s taking nothing away from him but he must have sensed it. I could have been beaten 5-0 by Stevie Wonder.


Another fine quote from rocket...nott taking anything away from Dott :-s

Wonder how Paul Hunter is and if he can attend ranking events on this season? Haven't heard or read anything about him after the bad news.
