JIMMY'S BIG DAY...UPDATE

Jimmy White today made his highest break in the World Championship for 11 years but still trails Vincent Muldoon 5-4 going into the final session.

White's 134 total clearance in the last frame of the opening session helped him recover from 5-2 down.

But the match is still in the balance ahead of the 7pm resumption.

After my cat took a giant wee on my bed this morning I would really love for Jimmy to win this and turn my day around. Go on Jimmy!

Jimmy won it 10-8 in the end. Great to see him winning again.

Hi Dave,

Just to elaborate on the above post and say well done, Jimmy! Although, it doesn't get any easier with Andy Hicks next.

Also, bad luck to Scott MacKenzie, who after pulling it back after a terrible first session, eventually lost 10-9. Having read the article in the Scottish press I have 5 words to add: Don't give up the game!

Thanks, Joe

A secret is wasted if not shared.
Its time Snooker Players realised that the game and the rewards are about TV entertainment, not the first to the line or the last man standing.
Snooker in this country is in decline and in danger of disintegrating into small factions fighting over a disappearing bone, yet entertainment is never mentioned as the problem but simply the lack of sponsors.
Snookers past champions are proving to the world that the game is not attractive by the absence of the "Bing Crosby OPEN or the many OPENS that could be sponsored by the top tobacco earners.
Sponsors generally are not interested in the commodity, but the hiring of viewing customers.
Snookers only chance of surviving without the BBC BACKING is to become self supporting. The BBC probable wouldn’t survive without the help of EURO SPORT.
There are far too many subsidiary businesses living off the game of Snooker without contributing to the game. No firm advertises ENTERTAINING tables, cues, chalk or clothes but are relying on snooker for business.
What should come first: Entertaining Snooker or Sponsors?
