Masters Snooker Final

Post by brothernero » Sun Jan 19, 2020 2:48 pm

Between Stuart Bingham & Ali Carter.

Anyone watching.

A fan has just had to be removed because he brought a Whoopie Cushion with him and started using it. :lol:

PS What is it about Ali Carter that just makes it so hard to warm to him?

Yes. I agree with that. I don't begrudge Ali Carter a thing as I have total respect for anyone who battles against the odds of disease.
He does though come across as slightly pompous at times. Maybe its just his sheer grit and determination showing. I was pleased he made the final though.
Stuart Bingham is a thoroughly likeable chap though and has been a favourite of mine since winning the World Championship in 2015.

Carter battling back to square the final at 5-5. I've always liked Carter and it would be fantastic if he could win this tonight after all he's been through.

Certainly wouldnt begrudge him. I think he does take his fight to the table and thats commendable.
Would still like Bingham to do it though.

Bingham is one of my favourite players. So hope can get his head together and come back and win this.

Regarding Carter, even in interviews (going back to when he first come on the scene) he just comes across as not a very likeable person.

Does Bingham still practise at Rayleigh Lanes Snooker Club?

It's just round the corner from me.

I was wondering if he would appreciate me popping down to give him my views on John Higgins and the perils of betting on your own matches.

Well done to Stuart Bingham for winning it. Would of been mad though had Carter managed it, as he was only there because Ronnie pulled out. The one I would liked to have seen in the final was the lad Gilbert. I thought he played some terrific snooker all week, but came up short.
