    Snooker world championships

    Anyone been watching so far?

    It started yesterday with some fans in attendance but from today it's behind closed doors after the UK government banned spectators from attending any live events.

    They haven't followed football's lead by playing fake fan noise so it's a bit weird just having silence after someone knocks in a century but other than that I'm enjoying it.

    I really like the world championships and enjoy the mixture in styles between some of the rapid frames that are over in 10 minutes and then being able to watch a long, drawn out frame that lasts over 30 minutes with lots of tactical safety play and then having sessions played over two days as well.

    Great stuff.

    the one snooker tournament I always watch, albeit not so far this year.

    I actually like the drawn out frames, watching guys potting ball after ball is good, but the tactics and skill required to keep getting out of bother and simultaneously trying to put your opponent in bother is fantastic

    I had tickets for the semi finals this year 😢

    Who is the new commentator? Not a fan of him.

    Kurt Maflin comes close to getting a 147 but runs out of position and then gives the cue ball the middle finger.

    Yep it's on BBC 2 at certain times of the day, other times it's on the red button.

    Also on Eurosport too if you have that.

    Kurt Maflin's reaction to running out of position was pretty unique.
