World Championship Snooker: Four to the floor

May 1, 2014

We’re at the semi-final stages of the World Snooker Championship, and for a few very good reasons there hasn’t been a serious amount of coverage of the 2014 iteration of this famous old competition. The main reason was summed up pretty well by Stephen Hendry when the Acutane Angler mentioned he might come back next year under the ‘wildcard’ system due to the lower standard of competition these days, and […]

World Snooker Final tips

May 6, 2012

Ali ‘the Captain’ Carter and Ronnie ‘the Rocket’ O’Sullivan are two of the biggest names in a sport that just loves to give out ridiculous ‘stage-nickname’ style monikers, and it is a source of great comfort to the fans watching their match that they won’t be introduced by the excitable MC more than once a session.
