POSTCARD FROM JERSEY

There's a great atmosphere here in Jersey tonight for John Higgins's match in the World Series against local man Aaron Canavan.

Aaron seems to have brought everyone he knows along and will doubtless do all he can to emulate Gary Britton and spring an upset.

Britton beat Ken Doherty 4-1 this morning. Ken played badly, although his tip was slightly damaged.

It's been fun here. Last night we were entertained at no fewer than three receptions and the players mingled with invited guests, stressing that this is not just about what happens on the table.

Crowds have built up during the course of the day and the mood is very positive.

As Shaun Murphy put it: "We've been saying for years that we want more tournaments. Now we've got them and we're not here to mess around."

Hi Dave, not really related to this but more about your post asking for new ideas for the blog etc. I know a couple of people who write blogs for other things such as youth football and they have signed their sites up to a website called News Now, which essentially gathers all of the latest news pages for a certain subject and when a new blog entry is posted, it goes on their page.

There is a snooker section here:

And if this blog were to appear here then it would greatly increase its exposure.
