    ARGH at Eurosport. They show soft muck over the 16th frame.

    Dunno, I loved that 15th frame. (Mind, I hadn't got to see any of the first 14 due to football. )

    They were both dire for most of the first session. Missed the start of the second through choosing to watch Leeds-Bradford instead. Come back and Higgins were going 10-3 up. Turned it off then. I want to see a contest.

    Mum reckons it's fixed to ensure a last session.

    12-10 and that's the end of the session... C'mon Selby.

    Well done Higgins.

    Went to bed at 14-13 and was certain Selby would win.

    Marco Fu wins the Grand Prix, his long overdue first ranking tournament win.

    Potted one of the best shots I've seen in the 14th frame. Tricky red down the rail, miles from the corner and he was nowhere near behind it. Potted it easily and got perfect on the yellow. In awe atm.

    Just seen it- truly amazing. And he made it look utterly effortless, barely even thought about it. It is good to see Fu utilising his talent and it is always good to see an overseas player win a tournament, even if that is a far more common occurance these days.

    *bump*

    O'Sullivan rounds off Selby with 147 in the decider of the UK Championship semi-final. Mildly amusing finish.
