Has just started.

 

**** me,  Tom Ford missed a superb maximum chance in the first frame.  Missed a half ball black (13th black with the other 2 reds central in the table).

Trump 0-3 to Ford.   Looks like he's seen a ghost.    Crucible 1st time winner  curse again?

Neil Robertson started with a free ball and just completed a 16-red clearance of 140. Apparently never been done at the crucible.

dennis taylor missing that it was a freeball and thinking he was badly out of position for a red when he was on a colour

just pointed out that it was only a 15 red clearance as he potted the first red then rolled in behind the brown, before getting a free ball

Ha, so he did. Ffs. It had actually been done once at the crucible anyway in 1990.

That canned applause needs to go.  Horrific.

 

Robertson always plays really well early on and looks like he'll be one of the top 3 or 4 to beat.

Ronnie O is a very scary man. 3 frames, 3 centuries, 3 nil up. Played about half an hour 😱😱😱

Loved Maflin giving the middle finger to the cue ball when on a 147 :pray: great effort. Really unlucky in the end.

He's won it already. At least that's the impressing the commentators were giving. 🙄

 

Hopefully Ding can find his form in the next round.

Ronnie's looking good but there's Higgins, Trump, Selby, Williams, Bingham, Robertson, Murphy there too. These guys are all capable.

you also have the fact that the winner normally starts slowly and peaks around the semis or final

I'd also say it's a bit different this year with no crowds. The guys are playing without that huge pressure. As John Higgins said, it's like playing down the club, top players can rattle centuries a lot easier without loads of people watching them and when they're a bit more relaxed. It really could be anyone of those guys.

£50k windfall for Higgins.   Maybe he can try his best to win now.

And get a waistcoat that fits him.

I mildly miss the days when the semi-finals were best of 31 instead of 33. Made the final seem like more of a jump, and therefore more special.

A few years ago, didn't Ronnie deliberately ruin a 147 break right at the death in protest as the lowering of the prize money?

Not quite.  There was no prize offered for it and when he got to the final black,  he stopped and was going to refuse to pot it.   But he was persuaded to put it in.

There was also the time he deliberately went for a pink with 1 or 2 reds left and got a 146.

I do also remember when Ding was on a 147 but he forgot he was actually on for it and took an easier blue instead of the black
