    It's his last chance to give himself a chance of playing to defend his world title.
    I can't imagine a player like him can keep away from the sport for so long but then again you can never know with Ronnie. The worlds would not be the same without him that is for sure so I really hope he says yes, but I really am not so sure about it.

    Mark Allen v Matthew Stevens is the final of the Haikou.
    Though Allen played really well beating Higgins 6-2 in the semi.
    Allen ftw after that..

    1st round draw made.

    Dott vs Ebdon stands out.

    A replay of their epic final.

    Dotty to win that one..

    Lots of upsets.. Williams, Higgins, Robertson, Maguire etc

    I would say Selby trumps Ronnie as the favourite for this tournament

    And Froome's curse strikes  :D

    I believe Carter is unlucky to have been drawn with Ronnie at this early stage as I would say these two could easily be the final not just a round of 16 match.

    My brain says Ronnie to edge it, but my heart tells me I am possibly underestimating Carter who just seems to pick himself up and fight back everytime he looks down. Ronnie playing well but missing three blacks of the spot etc allows Carter a chance certainly.

    Ronnie looking rather good.

    Quite an understatement that  :P.

    Bingham once again just tripping up before he can close out the frame and playing like this you can't give Ronnie any chances...

    Brilliant..  :lol

    You couldn't make this up.. he just goes on and on.

    Still I can't wait for the semi final; Ronnie V Trump should be an absolute cracker.

    And he better be back next year.

    I am afraid you may be right Tom...

    Ronnie should be too good for Barry, but you can't anything away from Barry who has done magnificently to get to this point. And of course nothing is over until the last ball is potted so who knows what can happen, Ronnie is always one for thrills and delights.

    And his latest retirement plans put on hold.. :fp
    I think he is just taking the mickey, wonder how the other players feel about it though  :rolleye

    Been tough in my mocks week to follow this all, but some epic snooker being played at Alli Pali this week.
    It was lovely to see Ronnie's win, in dominating fashion as well. So far no upsets have really occurred, though Murphy did defeat the in form Ding. But it will definitely make the latter parts of this competition very interesting.

    Snooker is one of these sports that is so peaceful to watch and I can enjoy it immensely. The silence in the snookerhall (?), the softness of the voice of the commentator and the skill required makes it a sport I watch with pleasure. But, I never really go out of my way to watch snooker.

    I'm looking forward to see the last chapter of the 'slugfest' between Selby and Robertson tomorrow. Talk about an intense game.

    It could be over quickly if Selby gets his frame. The final will be an interesting affair whoever faces Ronnie, but does anyone believe that they will have a realistic chance against Ronnie? Miracles can happen, but I see the final going only one way..

    Lol you posted that yesterday Gotland, things have got even more sluggish in the interim.

    Edit: All over and we have a Selby V Ronnie final :woohoo

    Obviously I want the rocket to win but I wont be too disappointed if Selby gets it  - its probably about time he won a crucible title.      I'm thinking it'll be a blowout with Ronnie getting a day off and winning easily, Selby is very persistent though and reminds me of Steve Davis in a way.

    Selby will give Ronnie a tough time. I am pretty sure of it, he is a class player who is about as good as an opponent as Ronnie could wish for and the master of the comeback. Ronnie will only be happy when he was his 18th frame won...

    I watched his 147 live and the gradual excitement building was amazing. The possibility of a 147 is tantalising, but one error and it disappears down the drain. Only once the last Red or two has been cleared do you really think it is going to be happen for real!  :)

    However, he is struggling just atm against McGill. 2-0 down so far. With Selby, Robertson and Ding out this has been made easier for Ronnie than it should be, Maguire could be the biggest challenge and Trump if he is on a good day.
