Sullivan did deserve to win.
Rip Fardin Qayyumi, Bob Woolmer and Craig.
Masters underway. Awesome to see that **** O'Sullivan fall at the first hurdle. Even better for him to not go into sulk mode for once.
World Championships going on here. Some close games thus far and 3 previous champs out (Dott, Davis and Doherty)
Round 2 as follows:
John Higgins (Sco) v Ryan Day (Wal)
Ding Junhui (Chn) v Stephen Hendry (Sco)
Ronnie O'Sullivan (Eng) v Mark Williams (Wal)
Joe Swail (NI) v Liang Wenbo (Chn)
Shaun Murphy (Eng) v Ali Carter (Eng)
Mark King (Eng) v Peter Ebdon (Eng)
Neil Robertson (Aus) v Stephen Maguire (Sco)
Stuart Bingham (Eng) v Joe Perry (Eng)

when you're winning, you have friends
scores and dozens, real friends
when you're winning, never lonely
when you keep winning
Watched Ronnie-Liu yesterday afternoon. Neither really looked on top forms.
RIP Fardin Qayyumi (AKA "cricket player"; "Bob"), 1/11/1990 - 15/4/2006
Day's beaten an off-colour and annoyed Higgins, in a match without a single ton
Carter swept the floor with Murphy (yay)
Maguire is on top form and took the first eight frames against Robertson, including a 131 and a 110 (still the best on offer by far. Six 50+ scores in a row.)
O'Sullivan leads Williams 5-3 despite a couple of nice 80s by the Welshman
Hendry completed the rout of Ding
Think that was it. Will go out on a limb and predict semis
Hendry v O'Sullivan
Ebdon v Maguire
Another 147 for O'Sullivan, taking Williams by 13-7, and 21-year-old Liang from Heilongjiang in Northeast China wins his sixth match in a row with 13-12 over the last representative of the Emerald Isle. Nearly chucked away 12-8, last frame total chaos.
I may have just found a new favourite snooker player... what a superb match!
Somebody has to...
Hmm Swail not happy with the way the balls were replaced on that yellow. He definitely could see the yellow, he could just see a fraction more after they were replaced (typical of Alan Chamberlain not to bother using technology - I do hate technophobes). But in the first place it shouldn't have been a miss (Liang was 27 ahead with 27 remaining, so you'd only call a miss in exceptional circumstances) but Swail was quite happy to accept that one. Bit of a shame really.
Great match that was. Bit gutted for Joe, was one of those matches you didn't want to see either losing, but hey that's sports.
Another 147. By Ali Carter, of all people.
Does he share the £157,000 with Ronnie now?
