Didn't see Hawkins victory against Trump coming at all, thought Trump was nailed on for the final.
What do I know :crazy:

Me too, I’ve lost track of the number of final frame deciders. Doubt we will see a tournament like this again.

Not my favourite tournament by any means, it’s just a bit of fun, but I do enjoy the Snooker Shootout which started today. Very unconventional to say the least.

Highlight of the day, young 15 year old (looks 6 year old) Stan Moody defeating Lu Ning.

A whitewash in the German Masters final, as Zhao beats Bingtao 9-0.

High quality snooker this week, as the Players Championship gets under way. Some cracking first round ties, ROS v Trump and Robertson v Kyren Wilson.

Coverage on ITV4.

Kyren Wilson handed it on a plate to Robinson. Every frame he lost he played a poor shot when scoring well.

Cracking game this afternoon between ROS v Zhang, both players playing like me at one point, the next putting in century breaks.

Now gone 4-4 and down to a deciding frame.

The Tour Championship now up and running, with just the 8 players, it’s only 3 wins for the title and a cool £150,000 in prize money.

Coverage on ITV4 all week.
